An Oasis on a Hot Day

One day my niece and I went to a local park for a picnic. I think it was one of our hottest days during the two weeks she was visiting. I don't have air conditioning and the fan wasn't enough to keep the condo feeling fresh and cool. It turned out to be a good decision to go the park.

The small park was busy while we were there but not too busy.


I also took cushions and books.  I wasn't up to reading but my niece looked at books while I relaxed.
 


We munched on mini meatballs, potato and egg salad, cheese, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes and grapes. We brought water to drink and a soda each.

The black crow in the tree next to us seemed to be waiting for some food.  We didn't
encourage it by throwing scraps of food but my niece loved to watch this bird and two others that joined it.


The shady trees made a refreshing change from the condo. It's always lovely to get out for a picnic but I seldom do these days.

Join in here to see what others are up to on Our World Tuesday.

    This summer is so much hotter than usual. We finally broke down and had a small air conditioner installed.
