[Focus on Life Week 16] Go for a Walk

Welcome back!  
It's Week 16 at Ms. Sally Russick's Focus on Life and the promt is:  "Go for a Walk."

I walk fast oftentimes, as if I'm in a 'walkathon.'  There are times when I feel like I'm gonna take off - that happens when I'm almost late for the bus... thanks to the train for taking a long time to pass.
Ohhh, I got a lot of stories to tell about the happy times of a commuter on public transpo.

The walks that I love the most are the ones that I take with my DH (dear husband).  A few weeks ago, I shared photos that I took during our afternoon stroll at the Japanese garden and Herman park.  Here are some more.
 
This pathway is one of my favorites!  I enjoyed taking in the view, the variety of textures, and the play of colors.  Beautiful!

In the next photo, I wanted to show you the canopy of trees along Herman Park.
These trees look old, with a lot of character and numerous stories to tell, if only they could speak.  

Have I mentioned that our afternoon date was free?  Oh, it was!
I bought my boxed lunch from work that came with a sandwich, soda, chips and a cookie.  We sat on one of the benches and enjoyed our time chatting and people watching.
Don't you love relaxed days like these?  
We are planning to make another trip to the park soon.  It was a very nice respite from the busy hustle and bustle of the city.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!  See you soon!

Looks like a lovely place- those trees remind me of live oaks. And the stones are so pretty!
