Sunday Afternoon - Pinkerton Park

Sunday Afternoon - Pinkerton Park

"The odor of burning juniper is the sweetest fragrance on the face of the earth." Edward Abbey

A lazy beautiful spring afternoon. We have walked the mile trail slowly. Walkers speed past our chairs hidden in the shadow of the sunlight. Parents walk with their babies in strollers and pulling a couple of dogs behind. Sixteen boys play a game of frisbee. A young couple passes a frisbee between them. Kids play on swings in the playground.

On my sony mini-disc I listen to B.G. Adair's movie theme, Diana Krall, Ian Tyson and read Desert Solitaire.

A dad passes on his bike, tiny girl, age 2 with helmet, riding on the back. Reminds me of those days in Angel Grove, 27 years ago, when Melinda rode on the back of my bicycle.

The breeze picks up. It is getting colder, perhaps time to consider an exit !!
