This afternoon is quiet and beautiful, so I took a little walk along the river to try to determine the river depth. (I had on flip-flops finally -- called klopki in Polish -- love that word, it's just how they sound.) After the drought of last summer the river has been really, really low.
The first thing I noticed is that pleasure boats are out. Maybe they've been there before but this is the first time I've seen them this spring. Their use of the river is a bit restricted right now, however, because Lock #1 is closed due to fast river current.
The footing on the High Bridge has markers on it to tell boat captains the clearance between the river level and the arch on the High Bridge. Today I could see the river is finally at "normal" level.
Walked back along the sidewalk to the front of my building. Here's a view of the spring flowers.
