This event and haiku are from 2012.
The SSB Drever and I ran across something today on our walk that I wish we hadn’t. Someone had dragged a picnic table into a tree covered ravine/gully and now it was being use for some “extra-curricular activities”. There are some trails that pass through the gully between the grassy areas, running right by the table. Thank goodness I was alert to noises. We did not take those trails; therefore, fortunately we were not exposed to the full monty in action.
The participants had driven their scooter right up to the treed area so they could high tail it out of there when they were done. The funny thing was that they made a few rounds on the streets that border the park before finally leaving the park area. Maybe they were trying to dry out, air out a bit before they headed home.
I think the City Parks Department should know about this. So…
