Today we are visiting a little park just 2 miles straight down the road from me. It's called Volkening Lake. It offers both a walking and bicycle trail, has a picnic shelter, a garden area, and best of all, a large lake that you can take out rented paddleboats or canoes.
If the weather was more agreeable, (read - not so freakin' hot), I wouldn't mind sitting on one of these benches and smell the wonderful fragrances of the nearby flowers, or gaze at the lake.
The bricks are piled nicely in a row, with larger ones on top to make excellent seats.
The retaining wall along the lake has grooves that go in and out all around the edge. I like the reflection of the trees. You can see how dry the grass looks from lack of rain.
The life jackets are at the ready
in case anyone wants to indulge in
But before they do any of those things, they have to be sure that they park their bikes here.
Have you ventured out in this heat to get any photos of things in a row?
