Even with early morning temps of 80+ degrees, we were surprisingly comfortable under the permanent wooden gazebo there. We enjoyed the sounds of chirping birds, buzzing bees, croaking bullfrogs, the occasional plop of a turtle or fish jumping in or out of the water, and a nice breeze that kept us cool. It's a lovely place, despite the construction going on nearby, and I recommend visiting and walking the trails if you have the chance.
I enjoyed the company of two artists I already know and met two new people. It was quite nice, and I was glad to get out of the house for a change.
Here's a picture of my unfinished painting. I hope to complete it this weekend so I can add it to the upcoming show. Happy trails. ;)
