I was looking for something to do, outside because I didn’t want to wear a mask, in Lincoln, Nebraska and I found Holmes Park. It was a 2.2 miles walk around th lake.
Here are a few pictures of my first outing since…. I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment. My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.
I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.
The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.
I haven’t travel due to ice and snow on the ground. May art and craft projects remain incomplete because it is to cold to varnish them. Since I taken a lot of pictures, go check out my flower blog. Up Close to Flowers
Some of these photos were taken at Home Depot, outside of grocery stores, or anywhere where the flowers caught my attention.
Here are a few pictures of Fall. Leaves are turning. Branches are becoming bare. There a cool, blistering breeze in the air. The kind that can blow you down and there is not enough clothing that you can put on the protect you from the cold wind.
The Gathering Place is a 100 acres park on the banks of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It’s a park that anyone, of any age, can find something to do. Every thing, except food and drinks, are free in the park.
It was to pretty today not to take pictures. Blue sky and wind blowing across the lake. This maybe the last warm beautiful day this year.
Sometimes, the sky is so pretty you have to take a picture, or six pictures.
Just a couple days before the first freeze the temperature was in the 80s. When it snowed a couple of inches and the temperature dropped to 23 degrees over night, the trees goes “Yipes! We are suppose to be hibernating for the winter.” So, the leaves on the trees start turning colors and dropping to the ground quickly. Yes, Fall is here!
My favorite location to walk in Grand Island, Nebraska is Hall County Park. Why? The trees! It has trees, big trees, lots of trees. The path around the park is about a mile, and there are two other trails: one around the Stuhr Museum property, and a second trail that takes you to the Walmart.
All trails are very peaceful. If you feel adventurous, you can take one of the many trails into the woods. If you need a rest, there are plenty of swings and picnic tables. The restrooms in Hall County Park are some of the cleanest public facilities I have seen. Yes, they are ranked right up there with Chick-fil-a for cleanliness.
A word of caution. Watch out for motor vehicles, bicyclists, and wild turkeys.
My favorite place to walk in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is the Cohn Arboretum. There are walking paths, trees and more trees, bamboo, a pond, grapevines, and lots of flowers. It is usually not busy, except when the workers are there. It is well maintained and peaceful. It is also on the way to the my No. 3 spot, so I usually catch both on the same day.
This is Baton Rouge, so remember wherever you go; your bug spray and water. However, pests have never seemed to be a problem here.
