Park Repairs

Tonight this sign was at the park entrance. Of course I had to take a look at the repairs. 

They did a fresh paint job on the surface, I wonder how they do this painting?

Fixing Up

 Both of these are on Estrada Street. This is the former Adin Miller home. Today they were digging out and cutting up old cement slabs in order to get ready for new pavers.
This is the full length deck for the Stoltzfus Apartments. New homes and remodeling have been on the agenda all summer long in Pinecraft. Pinecraft is getting a facelift.

Sunday's Bike Ride

 I did quite a bit of biking today. Here are some of the things that caught my eye.
 I marvel at how carefully they build around the shrubbery and trees. This is a remodeling job on the corner of Birky and Hines.
 Each balloon catches the sun's rays from a different perspective.
 The Chess Game at the park.
 A lone Palm tree
 It is time for another peanut.
 A Caretaker's garbage cans. They sit and wait until they are needed.
I don't know what these flowers are but they are beautiful.

Behind the Fence

Behind the chain link fence there are old church pews,

 A beautiful old chair,
And a tipsy bench.

Morning Bike Rides

 Yesterday and today I took a morning bike ride. With the rainy season still here I have to take bike rides when it is fit. The last while it rained in the late afternoon or evening, so the evening bike rides can get a bit iffy. Yesterday morning I watched this big flock of birds getting their meal. This morning only a few birds were here, digging deep for the last of the goodies.
A dozen of these birds were the Rosetta Spoonbills. Overhead about 2-3 dozen parrots came landing in on a tree, being as loud and noisy as their reputation.  
This morning at the end of my street met this squirrel with a brand new shiny pinecone. I sort of think she cut off the pinecone as there is no reason a healthy looking green pinecone should drop on its own. Anyway she wasn't about to give up her prized cone when I came biking up,  so she bit into it firmly and managed to get it across the street out of my reach.

The Pioneer bus came in today.
 Homer and Fannie Lambright came back.
 Menno Bontrager and his wife returned home. The squirrels will be happy to have Menno come back as he normally fed them in the morning, whereas I feed them in the evening.
 I should know these two who were also on the bus, but I can't think of their names.
 Tonight there was shuffleboard going on at the park, which is the normal for almost every evening. Tim Miller is playing tonight.
 Mother and daughter from north of Elmira Ontario.
Kenny Kennel and Art Eigsti playing on this end of the game.
