Briar Creek, swollen from the remnants of Hurricane Faye last week, captured a sailboat.
Then the creek spit it out into the undergrowth near the pedestrian bridge between Arnold Drive and Masonic Avenue next to the Merry Oaks neighborhood.
Workers with Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation hauled the boat out of the woods and took it off for safekeeping on Tuesday. They hauled a refrigerator out of the creek earlier.
Is the boat yours? Want it back? Call Susan Donnelly, greenway gardener, at 704.507.8950.
You might need it later this week as Storm Hanna heads up this way.
