Wednesday Walking - Close to Home

This is where I share the favorite place we walked this past week.


We didn't have to venture too far from home for this walk. Less than a mile from our house is Bethesda Park a city park that features a popular 20 acre fishing lake. I've been to this park twice. Not to fish or walk but to attend weddings at the lodge and  pavilion by the lake. Who knew there were miles of trails zig zagging through the woods?

It's funny how something can be so close and we've never really checked it out. Sunday we took a nice long walk around the lake and through the woods. The weather wasn't too bad but it's apparent with the temps in the eighties that summer is on the way. Oh how I dread our long, long hot summers...

The lake was beautiful and the woods were quiet. Plenty of birds, squirrels and unfortunately a few ticks to be seen. (Not as many as our walk through the woods at Jekyll) Thankfully we didn't bring any home with us!

I'm glad we took the time to check out this little jewel of a park so close to home.

Lace up, take a walk and discover something close to home!

  2. I love how the timber of the structure and the trees reflect as one. A beautiful spot for sure and a tempting spot to sit and meditate.
