A Walk in the Park – Part III

As we saunter and meander on a warm day of sunshine and blue skies, we make our way across the pedestrian bridge over Park Boulevard and head to the Desert Garden nature path.

Several benches hold a bouquet of flowers all tied with a bright green ribbon.

So touching and humbling… Happy Birthday, Jeremy! You’ve touched my life now because you are remembered and loved. You remind me to savor each precious, beautiful, and fragile moment of life. I silently thank Jeremy’s family for sharing his memory with us.

The scenery continues to amaze…

    • I actually walked through Balboa Park in December 2013 with my son John and his then fiancé, Amanda, on a busy weekend. It was so crowded and alive with music and people! My visit this time looked so different and I was able to see and digest more. What a beautiful place right in the heart of a California city!
