Park of Dreams

During my second week of my 365 project the prompt of {my favorite pastime} came up on a Monday. I wanted to take a good picture for that prompt (well, all of them, but I had a good idea). The prompt was {my favorite pastime} and I had planned to take a picture of the hexagons for Biscuit’s quilt. By the time I had a chance to try, the light was gone and it would have been crap. (<– This is a lie. I put it off all day.)  I planned to take the photo the next day as well as that prompt.

I spent a lot of time thinking about both prompts: {my favorite pastime} and {rows} throughout the day. This summer, C and I have spent many evenings on Five Mile Drive. In particular, we make it a contest to see who can guess closest to the number of raccoons we will see.

I know…I know. Ridiculous…but true. In our defense, this is our backdrop.

Throughout the day I just kept returning to how much fun I have when we go for that drive. When C got home, I asked if we could go after dinner. I wanted to try to get both my shots at the park.

We got there at the perfect time for perfectly beautiful light and sights but not for raccoon sighting.

We both estimated seeing 7…and we saw 2.

Defeated, we headed on a short neighborhood drive. I spied a green park and insisted that we go find it. I didn’t know what it was, but it had green grass and a tree.

It ended up being part of the campus of a local private university. Oh my gosh was it beautiful!! We got out to look and walk around.

On our walk back, we passed a particularly green, luxuriously lofty section of grass. It called our name to kick off our shoes and walk around in it. We both could imagine laying down and taking a nap on this natural mattress.

How could you resist this?

I love when we take random adventures off the beaten path. I love exploring our city. It was a GREAT day.
