ALL PROCEEDS WILL FUND A FRIEND IN NEED.
My friend who introduced me to this place is homeless and living in the woods not too far away from here. He walks by here nearly every day.
All funds donated for the clean up will be paid to my friend as #fairtrade for his labor. He has no idea yet, but he will be thrilled if you can help me #makeithappen.
i <3 Sunny Point. This #littleplace is a great spot to enjoy an afternoon with a friend. This is a hidden gem, fenced in for posterity, but alone within a shovel-ready commercial development loop.
This lovely spot is on a little creek we call Trickle Run. Now, Trickle Run has a secret power that very few know... she's born in a different basin :- o. Shh!
Yes, her headwaters duck under the railroad tracks that separates the Cape Fear River Basin from the Neuse River Basin.
Trickle Run is born in the shadow of the railroad tracks. After sneaking under the #basindivide, she ducks under Miami Blvd, and emerges at Sunny Point. She has a brief stay in her lovely walled garden, before dropping quickly into Walton Brook.
Walton Brook joins David's Creek, which joins Stirup Iron Creek. They join with Brier Creek as they flow into Lake Crabtree. From there, it's a scenic tour of the Capital City #Raleigh before becoming the great Neuse River. She joins her Upper Neuse friends and they head off together for the sea.
Trickle Run and Sunny Point have been treated right and largely left intact (#thanksguys). She doesn't have a lot of room to move around from side-to-side, but what she has within her walls is all for her.
This little urban riparian strip is #nottoobad, and we want it to stay that way. Her biggest problem right now #beforethebulldozers is wind-blown and rain-washed trash. The roadway and nearby shopping areas provide a ready source of litter. Several drop inlets on Miami also bring #roadwash when the skies open up.
Backyard Creeks is staking a claim to this little beauty. We're raising funds to #cleanitup and #showitoff. It's a #littlecleanup, so if we raise $50, we can clean it up with a two-man crew. This call-to-action is special, though.
Thanks for stopping by today. High-Five! Thanks for caring, because that's #allthatmatters. In the words of my friend, "God Bless."
