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.
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.
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.

I’m not Irish, and I can’t dance, but I’ve always liked this..

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.
and here’s THE BEST OF THE REST….
