Looking toward George
Someone was kind enough to
leave a green fiberglass 14 foot boat along the road just
past Whitman Creek. Apparently they had so much fun with
it, they want someone else to enjoy it! I am sure it is
free for the taking should anyone be interested. Maybe
they think it would help to attract tourists to the south end
so they can better enjoy the view of George Inlet and the Herring
Cove areas. I must admit that the green of the boat is
in sharp contrast to the stormy ocean waters. With a little
snow it will really stand out! With some lights it
would look like a fallen Christmas tree!
The person, or persons that dumped the couch or chair at 10 Mile
S. Tongass must really enjoy their work, sort of an avant-garde
type of art. I am sure that it will attract the attention
of the tourists during the bus tours next spring. With
any luck the man-made fibers will last for many years and provide
enjoyable viewing in the years to come. If you get a chance,
take a Sunday drive and enjoy both of these outstanding views!
Maybe we should consider asking the city fathers to provide a
place that such items could be properly disposed of instead of
being left along the road. We could even recycle some of
the stuff! I took some building materials to a place near
Deer Mountain on Saturday. They had a nice little shack
there, they asked some questions, and on all accounts it was a
pretty painless process. We should develop a place like
this for all the people that dump appliances, couches, boats,
building materials, and other items in the Borough to take
their trash to. Isn't it about time they do?
