This is a video showing one of the parks in our area. It is called Meadowlark Gardens and is located in Vienna, Virginia, about half an hour from home. There is a gazebo at the end of a wooden path which extends over the lake. On this visit we found a guitarist who sounded very good to me, with an audience of several people who were drawn to the music. He also had a pleasant sounding voice.
Looking over the side into the water there were the biggest fish we had ever seen. No fishing allowed here though. There were also several geese around, a few ducks, a big old grandpa of a turtle swimming by, several smaller turtles sitting on a mound under the shade of the wooden pathway and overhead there were swallows as well as a few red-winged blackbirds.
We have visited many times over the years and yesterday we didn't stay too long because it was around 92 degrees F. By noon it was a bit too hot but it wasn't just the heat it was the humidity. There were numerous people enjoying their walks. When we got up to the visitors' center there were also many people who had obviously come in to get cool and make use of the bottles of water on sale. A little while later they had sold out. Next time we will bring our own. It is also a great place to take a picnic along.
