There is something about a park...

Sunny-Girl and I decided we needed a breath of fresh air as we like the rest of the nation have begun to dig out from all the cold weather.

We found this rustic park that allowed us to wander around and bask in the bright if not very warm sunlight while we got a sense of what Spring will have to offer. As usual, click each photo for a better view.

Evidently we were not the only ones and passed a number of others with the same idea. I had to smile as this Father, son, and dog trio rode past us. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. It was a great way to get in a bike ride and walk the dog at the same time.

You could tell we were still in the grip of Winter as it seemed odd to be able to see through the grouping of trees that are normally hidden by palmetto and other over-growth.

The park is filled with trails and benches for quiet reflection,

and rabbit holes like this one that made you think of Alice in Wonderland and almost expect to see the white rabbit come along and run in to it.

We could tell Winter had taken it's toll as we passed this dead tree that had now become the home of helpful parasites as they worked to eat their way toward clearing the area.

There was even forest art that was readily apparent in this odd shaped pine tree that reminded me of a piece I saw in a juried art show last year. Can you see it too?

There truely is something about a park that lets your mind wander and offers all kinds of flights of fancy if you are willing to follow what is presented. It is not Glee, nor as exciting as the latest news on Victoria Beckham, or any of the other modern day forms of entertainment, but we enjoyed our quiet adventure.
