Children's Beach Boat Ramp Woes

While I was launching my boat at the Children's Beach Boat Ramp today, I noticed a serious problem there. The area between the finger pier and the ramp has washed out. Before, there was a bed of rocks and gravel. Now there is a one foot deep trench there. This is an accident waiting to happen. Someone is going to get stuck in the trench and break a trailer axel. Or worse, someone is going to break an ankle. Someone was nice enough to put safety cones in the trench warning everyone of the danger. Here are a couple of shots of the problem at the boat ramp. Be careful down there when you are launching a boat and walking around on the ramp.

No Spring

No spring yet again this year. We have had rain every day for over a week now. It's getting really really old. Yesterday afternoon it stopped raining for a few hours. I dusted off my gear and went on a photo shoot around the waterfront.
