A Walk in the Park

Yesterday, John and I saw a park that looked nice and cool, as it was covered by trees. The trails were wooden planks. It smelled like pine. So we decided to stop and take a walk. We had no idea that one of the trails led right to the beach. And as always, it was a crowded day. (Click HERE to see all the photos.)

Another trail led to a botanical garden that is behind a big iron fence. It was closed! On a Sunday afternoon?? We will never figure out Spanish working hours. I swear it.

These lil white flowers were growing in the sand off the trails all over the park. I don't know what they are, but I thought they were pretty and looked out of place really.

I love these pictures Jenn! What a nice afternoon you both must have had. The water and the sky were so blue, it made me wish I was there with you! Or my husband ; )

I'm thinking the flower looks similar to some kind of Daffodil, but who knows. And the parking . . . yikes!

Thanks, Sharon.
It never fails to amaze me how BLUE the sky is here.

Hey Jenn! I followed a link from Cinc and am loving reading your blog. I was wondering if you have any info on or pictures of base housing over there?

Hi Pamela:

A picture of the house from the outside is here:

But we are in "old housing." New housing is the townhome style you see on most bases. We had a choice and we liked the old better as we did not share walls with anyone.

Are you thinking of coming here?

If you would like to e-mail me for more info, I am at jennmail(at)mail2fairy(dot)com.

Hey Jenn!
Yea, we are really hoping to get Rota next! You actually were very helpful with my questions last month-I'm Kombatkween. Thanks for that. =)

Hi Jenn,

Manana is the operative word, I reckon!

I really enjoyed your comment on my BBQ post - it'd be great if you could write a post about your husband ``walking the BBQ'' home.
