A Picnic At The Park




Recently Hubby had had a doctor's appointment preceded by labs so he didn't eat breakfast. When his appointment was over we stopped for some chicken for him and a classic burger for me and found a park on a lake to sit and enjoy our picnic. The day was perfect with cooler temps and a sky filled with puffy white clouds. We had the park to ourselves except for a lone fisherman. We didn't see him catch anything and he seemed to just enjoy being there. I couldn't help capturing the reflections in the still water.
As we came out of the park entrance and headed home we crossed under a railroad tunnel. I should have snapped a photo coming up to the tunnel but didn't think fast enough. I knew I wanted the yellow metal fence above it and I knew I didn't have much time to snap.The tunnel is barely large enough for two cars to pass. As you can see it's been around a long time.
Linking to Skywatch, Friday's Fences, and Weekend Reflections.

I love an upside down sky! Wonderful way to rescue a day that started out sorta yucky. (At least that's how I feel on a no breakfast day.).

It's so nice to take those little breaks with each other when you can and this is such a lovely place to do just that. I love how green and lush everything is and those big, fluffy clouds reflected in the water are just beautiful. I really love the old tunnel. :) xo
