|There has been a lot of rain recently, and we heard of several areas that are flooded. We didn't try going to the flooded areas, |
but we did drive around to see what the rest of the town looks like. This is the road near our place.
|Looking down the road to Sittee River all you can see is water. That area is badly flooded, so we passed it by.|
|This is an example of the flooding on Sittee River. Of course, this is normally all dry land, but now it's flooded from the river |
to the road. (This is our friend Regina, and Cara grabbed this picture from her Facebook page.)
|Hopkins Road, the main road into the village, has two spillways where the road passes over the wet grass savanna. It was |
doing its job today, for sure (for the first time since its completion last spring). This is the first spillway section.
|Heading through the first spillway section.|
|This is the second spillway section. We turned around here and headed back into town.|
|Looking out at the wet grass savanna.|
|We saw birds and people alike out fishing in the savanna.|
|We then walked around town a little bit and stopped briefly at the public dock.|
|We also stopped at Driftwood Beach Bar & Pizza Shack for dinner. The path to the bathrooms |
was flooded, so they set up these Coke and beer crates for people to walk on.
|Some of our friends were there celebrating their daughter's birthday.|
