The pollen count finally went down enough that my body could breathe again and it was wonderful. It has been a rough couple of weeks for breathing. In fact it was so good that a walk at the Community Park was taken. The wind was ripping the bark off the trees but the mosquitos were blown away from the pathways.
As the Truck was entering the park a sign was straddling the center line. As the Truck got close it was finally legible to my crummy eyesight.
It is time for some patching of the path. In the last year a few bad spots had shown up and were getting worse. The spots were still ok but soon would have been trouble. Here is one of the spots that are getting treatment. This is too wonderful a facility to let it go downhill.
Part of the pathways was blocked off for our safety but there are still plenty of pathways to wander for a nice outing. The park is in the slow process of expanding into some adjacent property the city owns. Of course the expansion will be slow but steady as the limited funding allows. Here is a new facility that has started to form up. It will be a welcome asset to the park.
The turtle pier on the pond was getting a good business today. Lots of folks were taking the opportunity to check out the turtles gathering for handouts. As nice as the day was it seemed that the viewers and the turtles were really enjoying weather.
This set of turtles seemed to be intent on improving their suntans. That is a coated foam float that they are sun bathing upon. There are several of those kinds of floats anchored around in the ponds.
The city does a great job of keeping the areas very clean. More water in the ponds would be a welcome event for sure. As usual this park has a very welcoming feel to it and enhances trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
