Today I am thankful for...

...the new Flat Rock Park.  This area used to be a golf course.  Open to only a few for the purpose of playing golf.  After the golf course failed, and after much consideration, the Township of Flat Rock decided to buy the land and turn it into a park.

Today we have a beautiful long walking trail.  A small stream wanders along the edges of the park.

There are ponds in the middle where the water lilies are beginning to bloom.  

Thank you to Flat Rock for giving us the gift of this land.  It makes such a lovely wander on a summer morning.

"The ground we walk on, the plants and creatures, the clouds above constantly dissolving into new formations - each gift of nature posessing its own radiant energy, bound together by cosmic harmony." - Ruth Bernhard


  1. I do so wish I could be there to walk alongside you....
