It was a beautiful late summer day and the scenery was gorgeous, even though the heat has taken a toll and fall is setting in. I walked the 1/2 mile wetland trail but plan on being back once fall color takes hold, and walk the woodland trail.
Ready, let’s head down the path by the green and red trees.
What is that tree with red on it? I do not know but boy did I have a fun shooting pictures of it. I love the color combination of red, green against the blue sky.
See, I told you I had fun taking pictures of the trees. 😉
Now on down the path we go to the environmental center. I left the center with plenty of pamphlets so I can start planning the 2016 Tour de Parks.
This is on the other side of the environmental center. It is here that I leave you to explore this serene place. That is the shadow of my head and it will have to suffice as my selfie for this walk.
My walk in a local park last weekend did not happen. It was not postponed because of weather or a cold but because of a bumble bee. The bumble bee that I stepped on when I opened the door to let Rommie in through the garage.
Bumble bees do not have barbs on their stingers so unlike honey bees, they can sting you over and over again. I only got stung once, but it was a doozy. Benedryl prevented the site from swelling and itching but since it makes me sleep all day, I could not take it Sunday night otherwise I would fall asleep at work on Monday.
It is Wednesday night and my foot is much better. Cortaid has taken care of the itching and I can make it through the day at work without wondering if there is a hack saw in the warehouse.
Tour de Parks will pick up this weekend – weather permitting.
The color scheme for JoyReturns is now the same as the Cleveland Cavaliers who are in the NBA Finals starting tonight, 6/4 at 9:10 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time. They are playing the Golden State Warriors in California so they are 3 hours behind Cleveland, which means I will probably be watching the inside of my eyelids when the game starts.
Once the Cavaliers are basketball champions this site will return to normal – whatever that is. 😉
This week I decided to walk the east side. Well, that did not go so well. I guess it was because I mowed the yard on Saturday that walking the east side was too much.
I pulled into the parking lot only to find that it was full. So I parked at the next logical place – the bar. It is in a strip mall across the street from the nature center. It added a few more steps to my walk.
The starting point for this walk was the ending point for the last one – the boardwalk.
Come on along as we journey across the boardwalk and see the sights on the other side of Brunswick Lake – at least the part I could walk.
I encourage you to get out and walk parks that are in your area. You never know what sights and sounds you will see and hear. Plus, it makes exercise fun. 😀
