High Waters

Although it is not as high as I’ve seen it, the river is running at fairly high levels. This photo is from today. Note that the sign visible in the water is the one above the canal pumping station outlet.

Garcia Bend Beach Trash

Garcia Bend has some nice little beaches that are whole lot more inviting when people haven’t left their trash behind. Please take your trash with you when you leave them or any part of the park or parkway. There are trash and recycle containers available in the main part of the park.

Welcome to the new version of PocketArea.com

I have started moving this site over to new software. During the transition period some of the pages from the old site will also be used. The photo at right is from the start of the Pocket 4th of July Parade on July 3rd. I’ll post more parade photos once I have more of the new site completed. Use the links at the upper right for accessing prior pages including the photo gallery as well as the new forums which should be open quite soon.
