Beware of the Moira Monster if you go walking down by the Moira River. It lies quietly on the rocky bottom and is only visible when the water is low.
A creative artist made the monster a few years ago out of the rocks from the river bed.
It is just north of the foot bridge between Front Street and Coleman street.
If you walk the river front trail along there you can go down a couple of little foot paths and be right beside the river.
And you can get up close to the monster.
He is very friendly and will pose for many photographs.
Usually in the spring after the high run off water that flows down the river and the water subsides the artist goes back to repair any damage from the winter.
