A Walk in the Park

in esteem •  14 days ago 

#WednesdayWalk is a challenge started by @tattoodjay, The idea is to get out for a short walk, and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start.

When I'm in turmoil, when I can't think, when I'm exhausted and afraid and feeling very, very alone, I go for walks. It's just one of those things I do. I walk and I walk and sooner or later something comes to me, something to make me feel less like jumping off a building. - Jim Butcher

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Instead of taking my usual walking route, I did something for a change, I took a walk in the park near me. It is not a very big park but still, it has a lot to offer.

For a start, the park has a restaurant. I don't know how business is like during lunch hours, but they do brisk business during dinner time.

As with any park, there's the children's playground.

And the exercise stations.

There is a herbs garden. And there is also a section for seniors who are interested in gardening. I wrote about that some time ago. Maybe I will revisit the topic again some day.

Meanwhile, here are a few flower pics. I don't know what this is but I find them very unique.

And here is the more common bougainvillea

And a couple of sun flowers.

What a cool park I am the same as you if I get stressed or demotivated a walk helps me clear my head

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :)

Thank you @tattoodjay. Always a pleasure to join the Wednesday Walk.
👍 😊

And a pleasure for me to visit your post 👍🙂👍

I've learned about #showcasesunday if you would like to revisit a post (like the one you've done for the herb garden and the senior citicen garden). You can add another thought or perspective or combine it with other post you have already finished to make a more comprehensive post.

Thank you @willowwisp. I have taken a note of the tag. 👍 😊

Wow you guys got Sun Flowers over there? Those things are everywhere. It's the Kansas state flower and they cover the whole state. I don't know many parks with restaurants in them, in fact I don't know any, very cool idea though, very pleasant atmosphere and surroundings. I approve of this post too!

Howdy Jonboy. Thank you for that bit of trivia about the sun flowers.
I am pleased that this post have your approval. 😊

I thought you might like both points there, I don't give my approval very often. lol.
