It’s the first day of Summer. We have had record heat this year. Today is day 32 where the high is over 90 degrees! This week I am sharing pictures of the Ocumulgee River Park. It is a nice area to walk along the river in town.

  2. My husband just went to a Vietnam memorial here around Eagles Nest NM. He went with some Vietnam vets though he is not one himself and felt privileged to be asked to come along. The park was pretty from the pictures I saw and it sounds like it was a healing time for many of the men.

    Thought I would share about alpaca shearing that we helped with on you Outdoor wed. this week.

  7. I love a park by a river. It's always so much fun to stroll down the sidewalks and catch a glimpse of the water. It's too hot here to do anything right now besides come and go from the car to the house!!!!
    Thanks for hosting.

  12. Lovely place for a saunter around the park. I'm sure it would be even nicer in some cooler weather. I'm not complaining about the heat as long as it's tempered with some rain. We have both! Plus the humidity.... Thanks for hosting.

  14. Those are very crisp and clear pictures of the park. That marker for Vietnam Veterans reminds me of the views i saw in Vietnam, especially those at the war museum. Incredible what humans can do to fellow humans! Thanks for hosting Outdoor Wednesday.

  30. Well I hope the first day of summer is not the last as our weather is turning bad again. Two days of sunshine are not enough.
    Thank goodness I have wonderful sunny photos like yours to look at or I would surely just go back to bed.
    That looks like a nice place to walk.

  33. Looks like a beautiful place to walk. We don't have any parks close but just sitting and watching the lake is enough to make me smile.

  34. Hot though it may be, the park and the river convey coolness. So far this year has brought crazy weather to every part of the US which makes even the outdoors sometimes a not so good place to be.

  35. Beautiful park! It is rather hot here in Delaware, too. The plants were happy to get a bit of rain finally.
