Sunday I kicked off my Tour de Parks by walking .30 miles at North Park in Brunswick, Ohio. I choose North Park because of the flat, blacktop course around the lake. It was an easy walk part way around the lake. I did not make the whole loop because there is only so much cold (37 degrees) my sinus’ will handle.
The most of the lake was covered with ice and bread. The gulls and geese were fighting over the bread which is not a good thing to do at communion. 😉
The geese eventually did slip and slide across the ice to the unfrozen water for some fishing and a bath.
Here are some pictures I took as I strolled along the blacktop path at North Park. The purpose of bringing my camera on my walks is to slow my pace, be more mindful of my surroundings, thankful to God for this moment of enjoying His creation. I will also try to meditate on a Bible verse but Sunday I was just too frozen to keep my mind on any one verse.
You, my dear readers, get the benefit of enjoying the scenery without the exercise. Just click on the first picture and it will bring up a gallery of North Park pictures. Also, check out OgleOhio.com for a picture of the bridge then scroll down a little to see what it looked like a few months ago.
Hope you enjoyed the start of Tour de Parks. Check back next Wednesday for the next stop. As of this writing, I have not decided which park is next on my schedule. Now off to enjoy a hot cup of herbal mint tea.
