A Little Piece of Yesterday

Yesterday everywhere was closed for the long weekend so we went for a drive in the country.

That‘s when we found this little piece of heaven. An Ecology park is what they called it. I have lived around here a long time and never knew this place existed. (clickable thumbnails)

Beautiful. .



More.



Another



And last for now.

Hi shubhojit, thanks for the visit. It is indeed a gorgeous setting, nature at its best. Years ago it used to be a campground trailer park. :)

Eric Valentine said...

Hi there Paint! Yes we did some walking there, actually we spent four hours there last visit. You would be in your element with your paints & canvas & I bet you could paint a great picture of that place. :)

Thanks for your visit Scarlet. It is a very peaceful place and is called 'Willow Park' a great place for a picnic and a good book to read. :)

well mate, I have to admit you hit my comfort zone with those photos. I am hoping you had a fishing pool to fish that creek? If not, remember it for next time.

Loved the photos.

cheers

Eric Valentine said...

Glad you like Augs. I will be going there for picnics and mostly for walking around the beautiful parkland. :)
