More along the river

 This is the riverbank and you can see, right in the middle, a bunch of broken branches that were deposited there a couple of days ago when the currently high water was a meter or more higher.
 I walked by a school and found that they were building a new building on the grounds. I couldn't tell what they are going to use the building for when it is finished.
This is the new banking that they have installed along the river. You can see the water at the top. The things that look like stones are actually concrete blocks. If you increased the size of the picture, just to the right of the long concrete brace you could see think metal wires that tie each of the blocks to the ones around it. Even if flood water gets underneath the banking, it should hold together.
