ABC Wednesday: D for drains





http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/


Found at Hillsborough beach and Onehunga beach are these enormous drainage pipes. One of the perks of a water engineer's wife is going to the beach winter or summer.

Drains are good, as long as they are not taking sewage into a clean environment...

when I was five, I wandered off through a bunch of those in a park; made my parents frantic.

Those are good "drain" shots. The first one reminds me of one we had near us a kids. Loved playing in them, but dangerous, and mother didn't approve.

They look so nice and clean. Ours, by the river, I do not think we want to get close too. They also have covers to prevent the water back flow during the flood. Have a nice weekend.
