Strangeness on a Walk...

I got home early enough from work the other day that I was able to take a walk while it was still light outside. Just a couple of blocks from my house is a tiny little park that provides public access to the river.

Next to the pocket park is a large industrial area that has been abandoned long enough to be largely reclaimed by nature - which doesn't take long in this climate. The property had a large fence all around it during my last visit, but this walk showed that someone had removed the water front fencing and brush-hogged the whole thing - probably sprucing it up for the new for sale sign.

Taking the opportunity presented, I explored a bit, and discovered something odd. First, a single shoe.

And then another.

A sweater...

And pants...

Even shorts

and briefs.

I looked around a bit for the person, but found (thankfully) only spring flowers.

Still, it seems strange to me to find an entire outfit scattered through the grass.

Hmmmmmmm. I suspect someone may have had an "encounter" in nature, and then couldn't find their stuff in the dark. Or maybe the Coast Guard or some such arrested them in the buff!
