While adventuring on Williams Island this weekend, I noticed a red-bottomed paddle boat turned upside down just below the north dam at Williams Island, which is just across the river from Pony Pasture Rapids. It probably was washed down during the past flooding on the James River, but it could have been there even longer since that area is not visited much during the winter months.
Somebody took the time to haul a chest of drawers (bureau or dresser, if you prefer) to the Southside Rocks at Belle Isle and left it just below the ladder at the VEPCO dam. You want it? Act now! This valuable piece of furniture may not survive the weekend with all the expected warm weather and the influx of visitors hitting Belle Isle now that spring is almost here.
The abandoned refrigerator at Pony Pasture Rapids has been pulled from the James River and left beside the trash recepticle along the River Trail. The mini-refrigerator had been floating about 50 yards east past the takeout this past weekend and I had been told it might have been there for a week or so.
Who pulled it out? Take credit for your good deed please!
Did anybody lose a refrigerator at Pony Pasture Rapids? There is a mini-refrigerator about 50 yards east past the takeout. I wasn’t able to get it out by myself, it was water-logged and muddy. It didn’t seem like it had been there very long, but certainly needs to go. If anyone gets it out, it would probably be best to leave it at the parking lot and let the park system take care of it.
