Our latest excursion took us to 421 River Park, a small park on the bank of the Yadkin River. It is a small park, and its primary purpose is to allow access to the river for canoeing and fishing. There are a few picnic tables, a horse shoe pit, volley ball and some swings.
From the park you have an excellent view of the river and the bridge on Hwy. 421 which crosses the river.
There were some interesting "decorations" on the bridge.
Someone even left an apology for their artwork.
Here is an interesting view of the bridge. It reminds me of looking into mirrors and seeing multiple reflections.
This one shows bridge decoration the way nature intended it. What you see here are what appears to be the nests of cliff swallows or barn swallows. They build mud nests in very high, protected places.
This is a better picture than I could get, and it shows a clear view of the birds and the nest. Looks like a full house!
