JUST A WALK IN THE PARK



It has been so lovely here in CA. Today it was around 80 degrees out. So, when I dropped my dogs off at the groomers, I decided to go take a walk in the park.



One of my favorite local parks is Huntington Central Park. It is really nice because it changes with the seasons. Many of the trees die off in the winter (though you would never know it's winter here).

In the Spring it will be a lush green everywhere you look.



There are walking trails and if you follow the trail I took today, you will have walked a little over a mile each trip around.

I went around twice today.



I love seeing the birds and animals that show up here. You never know what you will spot on any given day.



You will pass by people walking either alone, with friends or their dogs. But, it never seems crowded here. There is plenty of room to spread out.

This park is large and there is a lot to do here.



Can you see the little squirrel? He stood there looking at me for a little while and then he quickly ran into the hole/tunnel he had that went under ground.

Soon there will be lots of baby squirrels running around. That's when it's really fun here.



It's also nice to feed the birds and ducks. Again, Spring time is the best with all the babies. I just adore watching mommy ducks teaching her babies to swim in the lake.

It was a nice, relaxing way to spend the day. Just taking a stroll in the park on a beautiful warm winter day.
