A Walk in the Park

 

Scanlon Creek Pond

Monday of the Long Weekend my husband and I went for a walk in Scanlon Creek Conservation Area, a park not far away.  This pond was full of water for swimming and canoeing until a few years ago when the parks people decided that that the pond should be drained and go back to its natural habitat.

Here the sun was pouring through the trees onto the trail going up the hill.

picnic table among the wildflowers

This picnic table looks like it has not had anyone eat at it for a  while. The goldenrod is pretty tall around it.

We had a good day today. Went to visit our daughter in law and our granddaughter.  Had to have a little cuddle time with grandma.

It sounds like it was a wonderful weekend, Valerie, and it sure look like the weather cooperated for you. I love the photograph of the picnic table. It looks like the perfect place to just sit quietly for a bit.

Have a wonderful day!

Very pretty. Sometime it's nice to see thing revert to their natural habitat. I bet you had some wonderful cuddles with the baby. :)
