September 21 — Southmoor Park west

North of Pike/Lefthand Creek, west of Bowen, south of Nelson Rd. / Ken Pratt Blvd (this is where the two meet), east of Sunset.

Total for today :   22,900 steps and  4:25 time. 

FLOOD DAMAGE

This area was affected by the flooding, but mainly on the very south end of today’s area.  The walkway by Lefthand Creek showed a lot of damage, but a block away I might not have even noticed anything had happened.  I was surprised at how quickly life was getting back to normal.

I did notice a lot of heavy equipment being transported westward on Nelson Road as I walked there around 7:30 am, which I assume was headed toward some flood recovery destination.

I walked across Pike Road and took a few pictures from the Lefthand Park area, which I walked as a neighborhood on August 2.  One of the two giant ants that I took a picture of then was uprooted by the flood and deposited on the opposite end of the park… see photo below.  Apparently the entire park was under a lot of water.

BURLINGTON CEMETERY

Located on south Sunset, this has a lot of graves from the late 1800′s.  It appears to have few if any plots beyond perhaps the 1930′s.

TENNIS TOURNAMENT

There was a tennis tournament going on today; looks like it was for young adults.  The poster shows a tournament for older adults the Saturday before.  I don’t know if it was held or not, due to the flood.  I’m guessing not.  It looks like it was a good deal… no cost to enter, and they even supply the racquet if you need it.  Can’t beat that.  Maybe I should enter one of these, even though I haven’t played for quite a while.
