Even in the 'burbs

It's amazing how flooding rivers bring out the sightseeing gene in everyone (including me.... ahem)!

My old backyard - sigh!


My old house backed onto the local river, but we had a giant stone floodwall instead of a back fence, so thankfully, there was never a threat of flooding.


Behind the old house, there is a floodplain with walking paths, and a giant hill that we use to use for Go-Kart Rides.

 I went for a little drive today to check it out.....  it's the path on the left hand side of the photo.



... and it seems to now be a waterslide!
