Durham Fountain

Durham Water Fountain

On the northeast corner of downtown, a public water fountain and garden.  Still pleasant despite the weenie water pressure and the loud HVAC unit across the street.  "There's a fountain here?" exclaimed my friend as we walked by.  Her offices are in the building top right but she'd never had reason to walk in the fountain's direction until I invited her for a visit at Urban Ministries of Durham.

You notice different things when you're on foot, of course.  I first saw this then-dry fountain during the ~2000 Great Human Race which looped around the fountain at the halfway mark. 

I'm told that we're officially "not in drought" for the moment.  Enjoy it while you can -- a treat that has so far escaped the gov't budget cuts.
