I went for a walk. I did the usual route, one thing I wanted to do was check on the Jelly Fish, only to find that they had open the sluice and were emptying the pond. I found the drain If you use what three words it’s cooks.onions.grow. I stood there for a few minutes watching the jelly fish. As they got closer to the drain, they were caught up in the flow, and were sucked through, flowing through a short pipe out in to the creek.
Just before then, as I was walking along the side of the pond I was approaching the point where the trolly had been thrown in to the pond. This had happened last weekend, I reported it to street scene via twitter, they did respond and it usually takes them a couple of days to follow up. Probably they knew that the pond was going to be emptied and so have left it. The really annoying thing is that the picture symbolises an act of disgusting vandalism, I was really annoyed. But I can’t get over the fact that I really like the picture, there is just something about it. It is deeply frustrating.
After the Cockle Pond, I walked down to the waterfront. Sometimes, good things happen when I’m out for my walk. I call them my rewards. Today, I had a reward;
The first thing I saw was this tug backing in to the harbour, as it was reversing, I knew a ship was coming in. I waited a few seconds and then;
This refer (ship carrying refrigeration containers). It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen one of these, and it was very nice to see. Now you see, this feeds nicely into my Locality activity. I probably need to do a post on that, what it is and how it came about.
All in all, a very pleasant walk.
