After many months of research, planning, and preparation we have finally started to construct the walls and rockwork for the new River Adventure.
The research started with a visit to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon (still one of my favorite waterparks in the world) and literally walking the river with camera hand.
While learning to use my new iPhone, I accidently hit the wrong button and took a picture of myself while walking in the river. Warning to all mid-age bald men…be careful when going in a lazy river alone with a camera!
It was on this “walk in the park” that I discovered something I must have seen 100 times before but never took notice…a water bench. To photograph this I asked my brother to sit in as a model which he gladly obliged, of course not knowing how exciting this discovery was for me.
So how is it that I could get so excited about a bench? Well, have you ever seen a city park without a bench? You see by reshaping the river with rocks, waterfalls, fallen trees, and numerous benches we are able to completely change the environment of the river.

If you still don’t believe, your just gonna have to wait and see for yourself.
