My World Tuesday - Bonelli Park

I'm always talking about Bonelli Park or the lake that is up the street from me. I made a video clip a couple of months ago but don't remember if I ever posted it so I thought it was a perfect post to share it in - My World. It's large enough that it's sectioned off into three areas - beach, boats and picnics. There are also little alcoves that can't be seen in the video like over to the right of the reservoir wall.



The actual park is so large that it has hiking trails, riding trails and parts of the park where you don't even see the lake and wouldn't know it was there if you didn't actually venture down some of the turn-outs that lead to it.


During the summer season they rent rowboats, paddle board and those little cart/bicycle things that you can ride along the paths around the lake.


And then, of course, there is always the fishing that goes on all over the late from the small piers that stretch over the water to standing on the shoreline.

You have a beautiful park. I love the reflection. And your last picture of the birdie(don't know the name)is just perfect, most probably shaking off the water.

I love that first shot! It looks like a real springtime! Especially the fluffy clouds reflected in the water!
But the egret just cracks me up!

Denise said...

Your photos are always so enjoyable. Loved the video. I could look at those views and listen to all the sounds for ages, the little ducks, the dog barking, another little bird out there somewhere, and even the plane flying over. Great post!
