Millstone River Roars Through Bowen Park

This picture taken barely six weeks ago shows a tranquil gently flowing stream through Bowen Park as it passes under a small footbridge.

This, taken today shows the same bridge with the river nearly flowing over top of it as it bulges at the seams, swollen by recent fall rains which have caused serious flooding in some areas.

A reminder to parents to warn their children to stay well back from the edge of these raging rivers as their power and might could result in a tragic end for anyone caught in it's current.
