Curtis Creek

Did something this afternoon on a glorious fall Sunday I haven't done in a long, long time.

I walked down Curtis Creek from South Park to the Stone Arch Bridge along Eighth Street. This used to be a regular adventure with the now 6-2 college freshman, but it's been a long time.

Joining me were Brant Boyer, who had never been for a creek walk, and Bella The Destroyer and Lucy The Queen of Calftown, who both love water and suddenly found themselves in canine H2O paradise.

The creek looks the same, with the high towering walls to the south and the spring water dripping from the north walls.

The bridge was built 110 years ago for horses and buggies and has stood the test of time.

Simple thing, isn't it? A walk down a creek on a sunny Sunday afternoon. 

Brant gave it the thumbs up and pronounced it "cool."

Doesn't get much better than that.
