As we were driving to the picnic area, I wondered more than once where in the world we were going. I had never been to this little park, which was about a 23-mile drive and down a dusty road or two.
But once we got there I was pleasantly surprised--it was so charmingly rural--the epitomy of a country picnic. I loved this old red bridge.
There were nice views from the bridge.
I walked down the water's edge and was thrilled to find these cardinal flowers. I had never seen them in the wild before.
We had lots of good food--sloppy joes, chicken fajitas and all the usual salads. Here's our dinner table under the tree canopy. There were NO bugs, not even flies, which always seem to be a problem. Maybe the drought has killed them all off.
It was a very pleasant way to spend my last afternoon before going back to work tomorrow.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
