At play over the field

Aria Turrey, 13, paddles a kayak with Anthony Turry, 6, on flooded athletic fields Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020, at Lincoln Park in Port Angeles.

The youngsters, both of Port Angeles, were taking advantage of park ponds that act as catch basins for snowmelt and rain.

Water from the park ponds travels to Big Boys Pond west of Stevens Middle School, and the overflow is pumped into the city’s stormwater system.

Port Angeles has received nearly 9 inches of rain since Jan. 1.
