Can Spring be Far Behind?

Sunny-Girl and I decided to explore a new area of the city, Stockton Park, a little park recommended by a friend. It seemed a great idea to get out in the sun and enjoy the warm weather, but Sunny-Girl had other ideas. She decided to remain in the car while I explored the surroundings. As usual, click each photo for a better view.

The park is small but very scenic. Another view of the entrance illustrates how green and tranquil the place is. This time of year I sing the praises of Florida weather. It was cool but nothing like what the rest of the country has been experiencing.

As you walk down the path from the entrance, there is a spirit lifting view of the St. Johns River and a pergola where you can stand and hear the water lap against the embankment.

I love this close-up shot of the pergola. Somehow the sight of it makes you want to take some time to just stand there and ponder all the wonders of life.

And this view of the boardwalk, a friend mentioned it made him think of a place for quiet meditation.

The park even provided a great view of downtown.

A final walk through the park and I was ready to go. Sunny-Girl may not have enjoyed it but I sure did. I thought to myself how beautiful this park must be in all it's Summer glory. And, as I drove away had to ask myself... "Can Spring be far behind?"


  1. Really really it looks like the Paradise...Beautiful parks! Guess it not so far behind...u'd better wait it until...!

  2. Nomore,
    I think you are right that while the park is beautiful I should not put away my jacket just yet!
