A Mini-Vacay

 


On Sunday afternoon, my husband and I went to Arnold's Hardware, to pick up some what-not or other (they always seem to have the thing you can't find anywhere else).  We ended up buying ice cream bars that they sell there, and stopped at the picnic tables in Memorial Park to eat them. 

People were all over the park, enjoying it in various ways.  There were kids playing in the playground, people training their dogs, families playing with their babies, and people setting up chairs for the final concert of the summer.  If you look at the top of this photo, you'll even see some leftover balloons from a birthday party that must have happened earlier in the weekend. 

Yet, with all that activity going on, everything seemed to be quiet and peaceful.  Not even hot, just warm and pleasant.  It was like a mini-vacation.  The heat is supposed to come back this week.  We were glad to enjoy some pleasant outside time while it lasted.

  2. I'm with Lulu. Lovely. I couldn't remember where the Memorial Park is so I clicked the link. Nice how you are able to link to a previous blog of your own. Nice idea.
