Performance Action with Body Board, East Potomac Park, Washington, DC

On Monday, July 31, I walked around East Potomac Park in Washington, DC carrying a body board I made out of salvaged materials.  

There had been heavy rains in the region on Friday and Saturday accompanied by flash flood warnings. Though I'm not sure there had been any incidents of flash flooding over the weekend. 

Nonetheless, I was surprised to encounter this degree of flooding while walking along the paved footpath extending around the perimeter of East Potomac Park. 


At this location, the water was over my knees, midway up my thighs and was definitely going to get deeper.  If the water was cleaner I would have swam along the footpath...
