The adventure is over.
It’s like putting training wheels on a bicycle – after I’ve learned to ride.
But that’s a selfish thought. I do recognize that so many more folk can experience ‘the point’ now, so I applaud the change.
Ogden Point Breakwater had planned the renovation for some time, so it wasn’t a surprise.
It certainly wasn’t a surprise that it’s more relaxed now.
And it shouldn’t have been a surprise that it’s more crowded, but I was taken aback by the number of baby strollers & dog walkers just walking along super slowly. I couldn’t travel at my usual brisk pace! It was more like Government Street in the summer.
Thankfully there is access to the lower steps… That’s where I find the adventure now. Pay attention to your footing or you may twist an ankle, slip into a crevice, or end up in the drink.
Watching the scuba divers enter the water, & the fisher folk doing their thing is also pretty cool. But even cooler is watching a public art gallery in development….
Overall, I’m still happy, AND more people can experience the adventure – at whichever fear factor they choose. What’s your call?
