Things In and Along the River
I just thought I would post a few odd ball pictures from our walk along the river. The one above appears to me to be an old wheelchair that someone threw out in the channel. During normal years when we have average rainfall, the river would be 3 or 4 feet deep here. But thanks to the prolonged drought we have been having, it is now high and dry. Someone should rescue that wheelchair someday.
This was left right in the middle of the boat ramp. Anyone who puts their boat in the water here when water levels get higher will have to first move that out of the way. I'm guessing the pieces of the bed frame were used as a pallet of sorts as it was missing all the rest of the pieces normally associated with a bed frame.
As I walked underneath one of the bridges, my gaze went upward for the first time even though I have walked underneath this spot dozens of times. I assume those are bird nests due to their large openings and there are literally hundreds of them strung out where the pedestrian walk meets the main bridge proper. In the bird world, I would assume these are the swanky nests of the rich birds because not only are they very well sheltered by a five foot overhang but they have a nifty view of the river as it heads downstream. If I were a bird, these might very well be my dream nests!
