Playing in the Park

Wow, it's been a long time since my last post. I have a lot to catch you up on! I've been very busy having a wonderful time enjoying ... lots of things!

I love running, but enjoy trail running and running in parks most of all. Boots and I have been enjoying running in Comprehensive Park. They have 3, 4 and 5k loops and the park itself is beautiful, full of flowers and ocean views. The park is a big athletic complex with a stadium, running track, tennis courts and accommodates many many other sports, hence it's name of Comprehensive Park.

The other day we did the 5k loop and ended up doing a lot more than just running. We passed a beautiful pond where children were feeding the fish, families were having picnics and yellow paddle boats we floating around the lake.

We bought fish food and watched the huge fish gobble it up. Under a white tent little Japanese mama sans were cooking up Japanese dishes and we bought a little picnic lunch and a enjoyed it beside the pond.

After our lunch we explored the park a bit more to discover a beautiful Lilly field.

We took the paddle boat for a spin around the lake with the fish, turtles and ducks. We ended our unexpected fun filled day on a sweet note with some cotton candy.
