Exploring--A Pocket Park in Jacksonville, Part II

As I considered the previous post, it struck me that although I made a point of finding a park along the St. Johns River, most of my photos were of other subjects. Here are a couple of views of Jacksonville's mighty river looking west from this pocket park. The third photo shows a live oak tree with personality and character to spare. Even though the day was overcast, the unique winter charm of our city shines through.
Question of the day: What is uniquely captivating where you are this winter?


  1. Such a beautiful park Mary! winter season is almost over here...:( Really fantastic!

  2. Thank you, Megha. What is interesting is that it really is not a very beautiful park overall, yet has some fascinating features for the person with the patience to explore and the openness to truly see.

  3. Goodness Mary! I actually almost missed a post! In the little thumbnail that shows up on my blog, I hadn't realized it was a new post. The title was the same and I just completely zoned over the "part II!" I love the sky colors in these past couple of photo posts. Reminds me of a just storm sky. What has captivated me thus far this winter has been the sparkle when the snow is falling. I love those big, cottony flakes, but this year I've noticed more sparkle in them, caught in the headlights as they dance their way down.

  4. You're right, Autumn--the two posts do look a lot alike. Probably a lesson--what a blogger should not do. Oh well, I'll do better from now on.

    I love your wonderful poetic description of snow flake sparkle! Thank you for a delightful comment.
