Winchester, Va., June 30, 2023 -
An interesting visit to Glen Burnie today. I refer to the whole grounds as Glen Burnie, living and growing up beside it for years. It has always been an area of mystacy and respect from the locals growing up here like me.
I even got most of my education from dwelling in this very area. Does anyone want to hear my stories of the Winchester Police Department trying to corner and herd a Glen Burnie bull, who got out from a hole in their fence? Well, thankfully they didn’t have to shoot it but seeing them have their guns drawn for their own protection and neighbors out try to help, all we needed was a red shrowd and say “Olay!” But that was wild. The bull would charge and everybody run for cover. Those were the days.
Anyway, I took a walk and took a few photos. Kinda a cool but I couldn’t help wonder? But that is the point, isn’t it? Hopefully, I will add to the article with a follow up and photos from the other half. These photos are from the east side and doesn’t include the wetland. They are doing an interesting job and the staff is very nice. Some of the art and where it is is questionable and art always is, as long as there are no feelings of an undertone establishment of anything - not much history here.
For locals like me, I keep asking myself “Isn’t Dinosaurland supposed to be in Double Tailgate?” Now it’s behind Harry Byrd’s house and Handley. I don’t know. Call me an art critic. The unlit clan candles in the woods and Muslim moon statue near the Old New John Kerr in the heart of it - idk, man…seems like a message. But what do I know and it is just my opinion. I love art and I should have taken the class. It takes a very special art teacher to recognize gifts.
And both one of my class sponsors and another - my next door neighbor - both of them moved to Winchester, loved and contributed to her contributions, society, freedom, history and liberty. And they both were forming parts of the Shenandoah Arts Council and supporters of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.
It is not at all what I expected but maybe I’ll try out the tree house.
And this walking bridge? All Trex, Winchester, Virginia USA made. Looks like wood but it is very nice and sturdy:
