There are a number of benches along the River Walk, good for resting, viewing, tying your shoelaces, lunching, or enjoying the sun. Today it's raining, so I pulled this one out of the archives from a week ago when I spent a lot of time along the waterfront enjoying the day. Most of the benches, if not all, have either donor or memorial plaques, which remind us of our town's people and history, or remind us that it takes people to make the community the pleasant place it is to live.
The buildings on the left are on Pier 39, which has appeared numerous times in this blog. The water to the left is part of East Mooring Basin, and the hill with trees in the background is the peninsula of Tongue Point. The Sheriff's boathouse has just been removed from its unfortunate landing point along Pier 39, and a fishing boat with a blue top is back in its dock.
Spring growth is still in its infancy. Soon the berry bushes will be covered with leaves, with blossoms and blackberries to follow. The dandylions always get an early start.
