Shelters in Use

On our last day in Barrow, Milly and I took a bit of time to go back to the playgrounds and photograph the structures in use. The rainy weather meant the playgrounds weren't as full as the day before, but there were still a few kids who were playing about on the structures. On A.C., the were mostly on the roof, to no one's surprise. Kids in Barrow like to climb on things! Sadie might be a bit harder to climb up on since it isn't near a fence, and the kids love poking their faces in the circle holes. A few kids posed for a picture with me on A.C., and I took detail shots and some video footage at each site. When the rain started coming down heavier later in the day, Milly passed by A.C. on her way to the airport and informed me all the kids were taking shelter inside. So far, the structures seem to have met success!
