A Walk Around Surburbia
Last Sunday I decided to take a walk to my daughter's school. I also took some pictures as well, which I would to share with everyone.
I will give a brief description of each picture, starting with the first row and working left to right.
1) This is the street where I live on. As you can see, it's a non-typical residential street. Lots of trees, grass, people and no traffic.
2) The side street in which Cedar Mountain is directly off to the left. My backyard is in the extreme lower right hand corner. This road basically dead ends about a half mile up. It's a typical Sunday in which there is no traffic and few people.
3) This is a very small town park called Banks Corner. The children of the Banks family donated this very small parcel of land (basically the length and width of a six car driveway parked side by side) to the town about a dozen years ago. It has one granite bench and a couple of wooden ones. Lots of shade and shrubbery. Excellent place to sit, catch a summer breeze and relax with a book or a radio.
4) A shot of the pathway that the children walk on a daily basis to the school. On the right are about half dozen backyards to a nearby side street, on the left are woods. Provides pretty decent coverage during a rainstorm (personal experience).
5) Shot of the soccer field with trees in the background. This is a continuation of the same grove of trees from the previous shot. These trees are quite extensive as they basically stretch from shot #4, through shot #5 and around the back of the school to the main drag about three-quarters a mile away from shot #4. They also stretch off to the left, bordering a side street and another main drag about a mile or so away. Incredibly awesome in the fall.
6) New playground. In total compliance with the American with Disabilities Act. 'Nuff said.
7) Flowers directly behind the school, to the right of the playground. Not sure what kind, but the color is what really got to me.
8) Tweety Bird, Rocky Raccoon and Winnie the Pooh (Disney version). My daughter's special friends. They are sitting on a rocker in front of my house. Rocker is custom made by local door manufacturer.
My slice of heaven, and I'm damn proud of it.
