While taking a stroll around the golf course, this old squirrel noticed a curb along the path. It’s a clever solution to prevent mud from sliding off the slope in a heavy rain. But then I noticed the break in the curbing and figured it had gotten damaged.
Upon closer inspection, Ol’ Wally here discovered the humans probably made that break, but they also decided not to make it smooth surface.
See those grooves? Maybe they are decorations to make this concrete look like stones, but they also redirect a trickle and disperse its energy so it doesn’t shoot across the path.
And it was handy for stopping a few acorns for a tasty snack.
