GOOD FENCES


These two photos are almost the same shot, just a tad more fence in the second one.  We are at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, Virginia.  It was sunny and warm but didn't have that humidity that I'm not too good with, so we were able to get lots of exercise that day.  This is the path we take where we can stay in the shade of these big and beautiful old trees, and look at all the interesting shade plants along the walk.  At the beginning or the end, depending on which way we walk around the park, clockwise or anticlockwise, it's a great way to cool down as it is very flat in this area.  And then you get a good cardio work-out when it is time to walk up the hill to the visitor center and the exit.  It is quite a steep walk but there are benches at intervals if you need them.


This is another favorite spot we enjoy going to.  On the weekend it was busy inside the gazebo.  People were having a good time resting and relaxing and chatting, with children leaning over the rail looking at the turtles and the koi swimming below them.  



Thank you for hosting such a fun meme Theresa.  You can visit other participants if you click on Good Fences.

Love the fences. And that wall.
I would have been with the children watching the turtles and the koi. And perhaps playing pooh sticks...

Great weather for a stroll and a cool shady area to cool off in! Lovely area with the gazebo and stone wall leading up to it!

That does look like a peaceful place to take a nature walk. Nice weathered fences. Loved the Gazebo shot.

Very picturesque. I'd need the benches. My time in flatland Florida has made hills very hard for m!

It's good that you and Gregg can get your exercise by strolling through the park. One day, when David's knees are better, he and I will do the same.

Rose said...

Both of these are so inviting!

A lovely place to visit, and how wonderful that it was sunny and warm, but not that humid. I don't do very well with humidity.

This reminds me,very much,of a wonderful walking/biking trail that winds through the heart of Indianapolis. Happy trails, Denise.
