A lovely hour or more walking in Village Creek State Park Texas
What a lovely day it is today….perfect temps for being outside doing just about anything. No rain—plants need rain but tonight would be fine….a very gentle breeze….and a paid up state park pass.
And it is close!
After breakfast of blueberry pie, we loaded up Toby and Dora and headed north. It is always a bit tricky to find the right turns to get to the park–but Tessie managed it just fine. She did tend to drive a bit faster over that bumpy pot-holed road than we liked.
I picked up a map in the ranger station–and noted there was a special thing to see—–a sapsucker tree. We studied the map, went walking down trails, and more trails, found the canoe landing with almost no water…so different from the last time we were there.
and here is another view
Toby and Dora were eager to go wading in the river.
It is a very marshy area filled with cypress and cypress knees. This pool was up to the level of the walkway over it last time.
I’d show you the cypress knees standing without any water anywhere close by-===but my SC card was full and this was the last photo I took.
We never found that sapsucker tree; there were a fair number of people all out enjoying the park and the lovely weather. We stopped at the Ida Reed Dog Park on our way back home—and now I get to edit photos and clean up that SD card before venturing out again for another adventure.
