Remember how Wall-E is solar powered and has to recharge in the sunlight when his battery runs low?

Still feeling a bit low myself,
I decided to invite myself on a little bike ride this pretty, sunny fall afternoon--
--just a few miles west on the bike path to Lilac Park,
a roadside mini-park established in 1939 along the new WPA-built Highway 100. 

There's an old beehive-shaped fireplace there. 

Also, really impressive burs:

It was cheering to have a tiny adventure. More are called for.

Good for you!

Those are, indeed, impressive burrs. :)

Fresca said...

Yup, and I kept finding more of them... :)

Those burrs are the worst! Especially with dogs. Did you know you can spell burr, bur? I did that on Words with Friends today and was surprised to see that it worked.

I've been somewhat unsuccessfully struggling with mood for last couple of months. Exercise can't hurt.

BINK: Hey, you are right: "prickly bur" has one r. I changed it in the post. Thanks!
A "burr" is a bit on a drill or a small tool.

SPARKER: Yeah, I figure even if I just walk around the block...

sun + bike = good medicine....even singly...but together they are great!

GZ: It's true, it's a winning combination!
