An impromtu boat ramp in McElroy Park

Well, that's one way to go see the river

I happened upon this scene last night while out for a bike ride in McElroy Park.

Someone backed this pickup, trailer and (I assume) some sort of water-going vessel into the James River. The trailers seemed like the size you would use for a small boat or jet ski. I never saw anyone come by to claim the pickup, and it was gone at about 9:15 p.m. with nothing left behind except for ruts in the mud.

I don’t know why this was going on. It could well have been someone with a very good reason to be boating the James (government officials inspecting the riverbanks?) but I can’t help but wonder if it was someone without a good reason.

If you know more than I do, speak up in the comments.
