Cindy - Florida Thursday 9:15-10:40 AM

I thought today's walk would be straight forward. My plan was to drop my son off at school and head to City Hall. That would be my starting point. The very first picture was this "one way" sign. That was the direction I was walking, so it seemed a logical first picture.
First stop: the Town Historical Museum. The kindergartens go here for their first class trip. It is right across the street from the school. I chaperoned this trip with Noah's class two years ago. Good memories:)
Next stop, a church across the street from the museum. This collage combines two churches with pumpkin patches, that I saw on my walk (about a mile apart from each other)
Museum, church,... playground. I went for a spin on the spinning thing:)(not really) It reminded me of the time we had a end-of-the-season party for my son's soccer team. Ah yes, Noah's coach spun the kids so fast that Noah got off, looking green and yes, he threw up:( Good times! I love this little bug creature. Are you feeling queasy yet?
Museum, church, playground...Community Center ( I think they call it the Event Center now). The background picture is the front of the building. I walked around to the side where the maintenance men were talking and asked if I could walk around and take pictures. They said "Sure!" When I turned the corner my jaw dropped! Click on collage to see details. The last time I was here was a few years ago, before renovations, to sign my son up for baseball. My how things have changed.
Here's another collage of the event center with a view of the lake.
Museum, church, playground, event center...Liberty Park
As I walked on, I crossed the street, to enter a little park that I had taken the boy to, years ago. Again, big changes. This was my favorite detour of my walk. The boardwalks were new and the grounds look much better maintained since my last visit. One down side. It was desolate. It was than that I decided to call somebody so I wasn't alone. "HELLO, HAYLEY!"
We talked for the rest of my walk. My last stop in my "one way" walk was the local sports complex. Baseball fields, splash park, skate park. No picture ( I will save that for another walk).
I turned around and walked back while I chatted with Hayley, about cameras and the meaning of life:) Had to snap a few more.

I feel very bless to live in a place with so much available to me. I can't believe that I have been on 68 walks and I am still discovering new places to walk with a million photo ops! Almost all of my walks have taken place within a 20 mile radius! That amazes me! Who knew?!

Did you find a new place to walk today?
I hope you had a great walk!

Where did everybody go? These photos are great, and deserve many many comments! I would write more and more, but I am sick. ;( I really need to go to bed.
