Wordful Wednesday - Walking On Sunshine

There are several parks located in the town I reside. My favorite, by far, is Bob Mays Park. It has a lovely two-mile trail that people can bike, skate, run and walk on. The place is so pretty and serene. Me and Adam took our dog, Helen, for a walk Friday evening.

It was Helen's first time walking the trail. She loved the walk but was not keen at all on the creek. She tip-toed on the water but didn't venture far.

After taking this photo of Adam and Helen together, it struck me how it closely resembled a pic I took about the same time last year of Adam and our now deceased dog, Cisco. Adam was fiercly close to Cisco and this pic assured me he'd be the same with Helen.

The trail at Bob Mays Park always brings me a peace of mind and renewal. It's also an opening for me to have close, quality talks with the kids. Removed from electronics, they tend to tell me what's on their minds and it strengthens our bond.

On a semi-sorta side note, I will NEVER be roller skating that particular trail again. I went with a group of roller derby teammates last Tuesday and quickly discovered that when a butt and gravel have a meetin' it turns into a whole lot of road rash. The speed velocity of skating and stopping downhill isn't a skill I've mastered quite yet.

Is there a trail or park in your area that you enjoy going to?

I bet your dog absolutely loved her walk. I have a park close by that we walk our black lab there. Her name is Baby. As soon as I get a tad better we'll probably take her to our bike trail along the river we're close too. Thanks for stopping by & have a great day.
