Nope, no, spring, skip ahead to summer...

And here are some Scrappy walk pics to kick things off!

The first thing we saw was a hole.  Not sure the purpose but they were about 20 feet from every lightpole on the plex road.  Perhaps "do not park on grass" signs so they can stop stringing up caution tape at every event.

The geese were about as impressed with all the joggers as we were.

Like I said, river is way low...

...but deep enough for a dip.



And in the distance we have Fort Wayne's famous university, IPFW.  Among its famous alumni are... well, there's me... but I don't think they want to advertise that fact.

So much cooler under the Coliseum Blvd. bridge!

Alright, this is new!  We needed a post so that bikers who can't see white lines will recognize two-way traffic by hitting something.

Scrappy once again visits the tank in Appleseed park...

...and poses at the memorial rock.  Scrappy? Hey! Get over here, and get in the picture!

Rebuilding the steps to the dam control.  Boy did they ever need it!


Where are all the fishermen hiding? Oh, there's one...

And now, Scrappy's favorite swimming hole...

...the Appleseed boat ramp!

"... and he walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land, just like he's walking on a wire in a circus..."


The bend at California rd.


Come to think of it, the geese didn't like us much, either!

Oh, yes, I HAVE to wade through the California Rd. swamp...

Ducks!



And they're off!


If you look real close at the tree that takes the 90 degree turn, we saw a woodpecker this morning. Right at the bend, that little thing sticking up just before the tree that's in front of it...


Goose!

Question: How does a fallen tree get bricks woven into its roots?  Answer: it grew up through them.  Weird...

And another orphaned golf ball for the collection!

  6. CWM:
    This is one of the BEST Scrappy-logues we've seen yet.
    I have got to get up there early some morning and wander around (love to get me some pictures of the that tank they have there).

    That's a nice area to bike or jog...wish WE had something like that down HERE.
    (or at least something that you wouldn't have to worry about getting accosted or run the hell over with at least).

    Excellent tour.

    Stay safe up there in Scrappy-Hollow.

  7. Thanks, everyone. While Scrappy is ambivalent about his status as an international star, he sure like what it takes to achieve it.

    And Mynx, thanks. Every now and then, it's cool for the co-star to get some props. Plus, the picture might scare off spammers.
