A WALK IN THE PARK 4

Yes! Believe it or not, I got TOH out doors again. I want him to be fit for our trip to LA on Sunday. This time we visited Alexander Clark Park at Loganholme, fifteen minutes drive from home. It had been raining and I was trying to juggle an umbrella and my point and shoot camera. So the shots are not clear as I was moving and holding the camera with one hand.
 It is a pretty, well maintained park, which borders the Logan River.

 Every now and then there is a pontoon for boats and for us to see the river, 

which is brown from all the rain we have been having.




We walked in a circuit, by the river, through the forest and past many BBQ areas and children's playgrounds. This one intrigued us. It was like a rail line with these pedal bikes that went along the track. We hope we can take our grandsons there one day.

Uh Oh ! TOH has spotted our car, he's picking up the pace on the home run.

  4. TOH looks pretty fit from all your outdoor excursions. I think you will be even fitter after babysitting a two-year-old next week! I love the look of those pedal bikes on the rail. Have a great weekend and travel safely to LA. Jo

    Ah! I have worked out why these "walkies" have all of a sudden become compulsory. It's for when you leave LA and go to San Francisco. Instead of that cable car tram you'll be walking down and up those hills to Fisherman's Wharf, plus that crooked street so as photos can be taken!
    So maybe even today before you leave you better do some more training! (Horrible thought!)
    Have fun with the girls and grandkids in LA.
    Cheers

  8. Yes, plenty of time for "walkies training session #5" this morning and the weather is perfect for a brisk stroll. TOH "MUST" be fit for the SFO hills! The SFO hills will have TOH primed for your next adventure - "Trekking in the Andes"! ha ha.
    Cheers

  13. HI Diane, how exciting you are going to LA? I am sure you will be happy to see the grandchildren and your daughter. It is wonderful you have TOH out on another walk. It is a great place for the family outings. The bike on rails is cute. The photos of the park and river are pretty. Have a wonderful weekend!

  19. The monorail pedal bikes look great. I wonder if you pedal fast do you bump the car in front. Off to LA how exciting to catch up with the family again.

  20. Readers always comment when I post water pictures about how brown the water is. It is here quite a bit in winter or rainy weather because of the red clay mud on the bottom. I'm pleased to see there is muddy water in the rest of the world as well. :)
    I want to take my granddaughters to that park. Those bikes must surely be a big hit.

  21. Both walks are beautiful and I think (my) Bill would like them too. (Although when he spotted the car he would be the same).

  22. Always such INCREDIBLE photos. You have some gorgeous scenery, but you are just SO good with your camera. I look forward to seeing more of your photos, but spend your time having a wonderful visit with Mr. Fox, the family, and the new addition.
