A Walk in the Park

Standard
A Walk in the Park

In keeping with my long-standing policy of taking walks in beautiful surroundings (because I hate exercising and need eye candy to entice myself to do it), in late February, camera in hand, I walked the lake path (two loops–not bragging) at Kiwanis Park near my home. The path meanders uphill and down, so it provides an excellent workout. When my daughter Katie was in high school and college, we’d often come here together in the evening. She’d run the loop twice while I walked it once.

When we moved to the area almost twenty-eight years ago, I often took the kids to a playground at the other end of the park. The kids lasted about fifteen minutes in the Arizona heat. It wasn’t until many years later that a friend clued me in to the covered play structure near the lake.

My niece was married at one of the ramadas that border the lake.
