Just took a spin around the loop. Large birds were building nests in the beautiful trees at the point. Quaint area, worth a look.

This is an awesome location if you are looking for some local flavor and culture. You can grab a cup of coffee and sit back and watch the boats. It is so amazing! There are also all kinds of neat shops to visit.

Not that I've ever seen but after heavy rains it's there. According to the Orange County Register, it's flowing again. Google it. I can't post html links here.
