"I Can See Clearly Now" 🎶

"I can see clearly now the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day"
-Johnny Nash

I have my regular, conveniently located park about a five minute drive away where I normally go to walk. I posted about it last week here https://steemit.com/esteem/@ninahaskin/in-my-life-sunday-at-the-park. Since I like a bit of variety in my life and don't ever want to be predictable, it was exciting news to learn another city park opened nearby. A park that's about ten times larger.

Bigger.
Better.

This was the view from my deck during a break from the rain on late Saturday.

Blah and gloomy!

After two chilly, rainy, windy and overall yucky outdoor days it was a welcome sight when the fog lifted and the sun made an appearance Sunday!

I hoped the weathermen would be correct with their forecast and was excited when my plans to explore a new park nearby happened!

The natural song choice for today's post is "I Can See Clearly Now" by Johnny Nash. Click below to listen and get pumped up as we take an adventure through the new park!

Come along with me as we walk through Veterans Tribute Park, the new $7 million park located in Weldon Spring, Missouri. It will not disappoint!

The views at the park are undeniably beautiful! This is one of two stocked lakes at the park (catch and release). If you look closely, you can see ripples where a fish broke the surface of the water.

There are even hardy pansies planted along the walking paths.

Next, we have this lovely plant boasting red berries that reminded me of both Thanksgiving cranberries and Christmas bayberries.

I notice a dot of red color on the crevice and some smaller rocks. Let's take a closer look.

Unfortunately the days end much too soon and it was getting dark outside. Another quick photo, or three, as we head back to the car. Rest assured, I promise to take you back to the park soon as I have many more photographs to share! And we didn't even get to play on this exciting playground today!

Those are some real nice boulders @ninahaskin! :-)
Is that a red piece of perhaps a cars broken tail light? lol
That slide there looks like it has a bumpy ending! hehe

It's actually a piece of a red maple leaf that broke off & somehow landed in the crevice on the rock @shasta🍁

Yes, and those cut off pieces of logs at the bottom of the slide look like they could be painful!

Thank you for stopping by and your support!💫
I'm enjoying looking for boulders to photograph!
