Before and After

At some point before Christmas, I drove to Williams Wharf, parked the car and went for a four-mile run.

Afterwards, I took a few pictures of the old railway, which is always so photogenic.

The pictures below were taken the Friday after Christmas, when Middle Sister and I drove to Williams Wharf for some post-feeding-frenzy exercise.

Much to my surprise, the old railway was gone.

There is a major construction project underway, and part of that construction included the destruction of the railway.

For more information on Williams Wharf that contains a picture of the original railway, click here.

For more information on the new construction project, click here.

If you're sad to see the old railway go, click here for a post I wrote back in 2011 bemoaning the loss of the old boathouse.  There are more pictures of the railway, too.

Happy New Year's Eve.

I find it a bit ironic that the Land Conservancy page is not talking much about conservation but instead about a multistory building with many functions, including event facilities from which to enjoy regattas on the river...that should do wonders for the area wildlife.
Nonetheless, the future hurtles toward us...and I wish you and your family a wonderful 2015 !
