It was a balmy 90 degrees when we left the house this afternoon on our way to the park. Summer is practically upon us, not that we got much of a break here in South Florida. It was a beautiful day, however, and a nice breeze kept us fairly comfortable. The park is always busy, which is nice. I think it’s great to see so many people enjoying these public spaces. The park is very well kept and from what I’ve seen people help keep it that way by using the trash cans and treating it with care. The basketball courts are the busiest part of the park. The tennis courts get a lot of use as well, and of course the kid’s lot doesn’t fall far behind.
Diego kept to the grassy field today. He loves running around aimlessly and the open space thrills him. He ran until his face was red. All that energy he needed to burn was well spent. Because the playground equipment is on sand he tends to avoid that. In fact, he won’t wander into the sand unless we put him in it. It always take him a while to take that first step and then he moves at a snail pace towards the slides.
Here are some photos from today.
