“Scenes seen” on a sparkling Sunday

Yesterday was a brilliant, sparkling day for a walk about town. Here’s some of the scenes we saw.

There’s a mansion for sale — a piece of history is this Classic Victorian. All original woodwork. The mansion is up for sale for $350,000; it’s located at 360 Chestnut Street, Columbia. See more photos, including lots of interiors, here.

ugi uglificationThanks, UGI, for your contributions to “uglification.”

crash sceneAround mid-afternoon today, we happened onto the after-scene of a fender bender at Third and Avenue H. Response crews – police, fire, emergency medical and fire police –  were on the scene. We’re unsure whether there were injuries, but there appeared to be none. Wonder whether the vehicle was exiting Avenue H from the wrong direction?

at river parkThere were vehicles parked in nearly all the spaces wraping the Visitors Center at River Park. (Clockwise from top left) There’s a new water fountain at the park. Who measures the weeds along the fancy fence on Heritage Drive? Newly placed benches with a Columbia Water Company treatment plant view. A parking hog with no regard for persons with a disability.

party timeLooks like some folks cannot wait for the River Park extension to be completed to party.

sleeping bagOr pitch a sleeping bag. No doubt waiting for that first concert.
