An afternoon at the park



I crave the sea, but since I am land-locked in Kansas, I seek out area lakes. Yesterday, I grabbed my camera, a lawn chair, and Nicholas Sparks' book, Message in a Bottle, and headed to Shawnee Mission Park. I needed some alone time and found the perfect spot. There was no wind and the water was like glass. I so enjoyed my afternoon in the sun.

Amazing to see the clouds reflected so clearly in the water. Great shot. Hope you got what you needed from your alone time by water. So restorative.
