c’mon, spring, you can do it. c’mon. just a little bit more…

(I apologize that this is a bit ‘regional’ in its content…)

When I lived in Olathe, Kansas, I absolutely LOVED walking at Heritage Park. It was a beautiful morning walk around the lake. Time flew by as I walked past the morning cranes and geese and various other morning birds, occasionally greeted by a ‘Good morning’ as I crossed paths with a jogger. It was open and safe, but was also a nice habitat immersed in a growing neighborhood of communities. It has remained my favorite walking spot to date.

To date. | Scott and I were driving around this weekend when we found a state park very near our house (we clocked it this morning at 3 miles from our place.) As we drove into the park, I kept mentioning how much it felt like Heritage Park and the walking paths looked wonderful – and Scott kept saying something about a fishing license whatchamacallit…

Needless to say, we were hooked. We found picnic tables and quickly planned our Summer 2013 outings that would involve our new Happy Place: Standing Bear Lake Park.

This morning we walked (not too far and not too fast) and it was as wonderful as I remembered Heritage Park to be. I can’t wait to go back tomorrow morning!!

Here are some sun’s-too-high, non-camera, phone-pictures-only views on my morning walk. We’re trying so hard here in Omaha to usher in Spring…
