That oppressive heat is enough to make anyone go crazy! Bad enough when you can stay inside with the shades drawn and the fans going. But to spend it outdoors?! Poor little Boo didn’t want to leave the shade. Me neither.
We had to find someplace to spend the afternoon with Boo while my realtor had the open house. So we went to South Glenmore Park where the yacht club and sailing club are. Big Whoop. A giant puddle LOL
This park is on the south side of the city’s reservoir.
In this city, this place is wildly popular! Actually, any puddle of water is crowded in all cities on a hot day!
I discovered something about myself…I am a nature snob.
While I am all for beautifying a cityscape with trees, flowers, parks and bike trails, I must say I find the whole thing rather sad and pathetic. After all, the people ripped apart nature, built the concrete structures and asphalt roads, then decided to “build” a few green spaces. Come on!
To me, it is “artificial nature”, created as an afterthought, usually incorporating some way to make some money. Because the whole goal is of city life is to make money. Bottom line…people got it wrong.
Rip apart nature, pour concrete, build tall buildings, as many as possible to enable more and more people to congregate in one space, then try to put in some nature spots to keep them a content? How can that be right?
The water was still. Unmoving. Unnatural. Boring.
A splash park for the kids was created because there is no swimming allowed in the reservoir.
If you step from the shade of a shade you are instantly TOO HOT and the first place you sunburn is the feet.
Less than a month more of this torture.
Time passes slowly when you anxiously await liberation.
