Someone pulled the plug.

Today while in the city we decided to take a stroll along the once beautiful Torrens River to see the devastation first hand cause by the accidental opening of the weir. Boy it was heartbreaking to see and not to mention a bit on the nose.

Pop Eye is high and dry and sadly sitting on the stinking mud.

The paddle boats were still a colorful sight to see even though they now find themselves in the yuck and stench too.

The only good to come out of it is that the Torrens is getting one good clean out. We saw supermarket trolleys, chairs, park benches, rubbish bins and motor scooter and numerous other items in the mud and slush.

We weren't the only sightseers out for a look this morning but all I can say is please let it rain and rain good soon as it certainly isn't a pretty sight.
