So we have a lovely walk on the beach. Quiet and serene with only the pelicans as company. Wait! What is that?
Oh no. The dreaded water truck filling blue barrels. Why fill barrels? You ask?
These barrels are to keep a clear path by designating no parking zones for the thousands of spring breakers expected to show up.
Here is a long view looking back at the truck. Those poles on the right are for trash cans. Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey took them, and the city is not sure if the new ones will arrive in time. (Spring Breakers start arriving on the 9th) We may be up to our necks in trash. Spring Breakers are not very good at picking up their trash.
Here is my attempt at an art shot showing the barrels going off into the distance.
I figured you could get a better look from the cart over. Those barrels run from our place to the downtown area (four miles). There is no parking on the left side so that emergency vehicles can get through. Yes, there is always the need for emergency vehicles.
Here is the old police station. It is no longer viable and is slated to be torn down. Why show you a picture of the police station? Because a lot of underage kids usually end up here.
Here are the temporary police headquarters. It is across the parking lot from the old.
You can tell it is the police department by the cars around it.
This is a shot of the jail which is connected to the temporary police building. It doesn’t look like a jail, does it?
How about now? This is the right side of the building with four cells.
Here is the left side with four more cells
Here is a shot of one cell. Notice the metal floor, sink, and toilet. Not very comfortable. Well, let’s hope no one we know ends up here.
