Back door?

Now we have circled back around on the lower path, and have come to the Troll's back door. You can see the railing above is where Little Miss Lavendar Coat first spotted him. Tomorrow, we'll take a closer look. (Thanks for the name Photowannabe!)

Continuing on...

We left the Troll, and continued on with intentions to circle back and see if we could find him from the lower level of the drainage area. (to be continued)

..... and looking up at her

Here's what the little girl in the lavendar coat saw as she looked down through the drainage grate. She looked for quite a while, as she asked a few Troll questions (like: "will he get me" and "how did he get there") and then we went on to further investigate the area.

... Look down

The child has found the troll!
More photos of this troll excursion to come, but only one a day.
I hope you all enjoy this vicarious river walk with the little girl in the lavender coat.
It was a cold, wet, rainy day, but we had fun anyway.

Going to see the troll

In this photo, at the base of the birdhouse pole, you can see a black drainage grate. Below the grate is Wichita's very own river troll. I've featured the troll in some past photos, but the little girl in the photo wanted to "go see it again". So, off we went on a troll hunt. I'm proud of Wichita for putting some fun public art for kids to find along the river. If you ever go walking along the area of the Keeper of the Plains Plaza, and you have children that like adventure (and troll stories) - be sure to see if you can find him. The birdhouse and black grate in this photo is what to look for, when you get there........ (to be continued).

Red Lobster

This is a photo of a popular seafood restaurant in Wichita.
It was taken on a wet rainy evening, which made for some nice red reflections in the parking lot.
