Check out these trees!

I picked up my little companion from school and she agreed to go with me to this marvelous park to take pictures for the blog. She had been here a couple of times this summer with her day camp and I have marveled at it each time I drive by.

This park has these massive oak trees,

Covered in Spanish moss.

Some people call it the tree park.

It has wonderful shade, a little haven from the intense sun. Marvelous!!
Now, lets live vicariously for a minute through the unfettered, uninhibited loveliness of a child, ready?

Jump on the swing, get those legs going, swinging higher and higher,

Now when you are as high as you can go yell out, I'M A BIRD!!!!! With a smile on your face and unashamed abandonment for all the world to hear.

Happy Saturday!

Hi, Valerie,
Those massive oaks are beautiful with the moss hanging from them. I am sure the cool shade was welcome, too. Yes, I can remember swinging and trying to go higher and higher. It was like I was flying! Have a blessed Sunday. Vicki
