FMTSO-Earth Day/ Bray park

This week FMTSO the assignment is Trees, Leaves, Branches and Dirt. Bray Park is a 140 acre park, that is 2.4 miles from my front door.

Does this fit the tree part of the assignment?

The park has covered picnic area, olympic pool, kids pool, tennis courts, playground, 2 off leash dog parks, baksetball courts, baseball, volleyball, bike trails. 
 And Nature Trails

This wooded part is my favorite part, about 15 acres of Oak trees, hundreds, mabye thousands of trees

10 minutes from our beaches and right in the heart of our resturants and shops

And it has REST ROOMS... YIPEEE

Sticks and leaves, free and open dawn to dark, 7 days a week

THINK GREEN. recycle, reuse, restore..
NO! MadSnapper did NOT deface this knot on the tree, I found it this way
TO FIND OTHER TREES, STICKS,LEAVES POP OVER TO

You did a great job with the theme for the week. I really like the grove of oak trees. Your photos are wonderful. I am glad, though, that you didn't deface the knot on the tree.

Things to be found AMONG the trees, too! Like that man on a bike! Lets see how many people find him.

Hi Sandra, What fabulous pictures... I'm a lover of trees for sure --since we have so many in our yard!!!!!! I'd love to walk along that path... What a great place...

I thought you had used your Photo Shop skills to color that last one!!!!!

Let's work harder to care for the EARTH...
Hugs,
Betsy

Wow..I forget which one of those shots- the trees (ok, I checked)- above where you put (nature trails)..but really, as I scroll back -they are all so expressive. No wonder biblically, trees are associated with man! I love your fabulous Oak trees, trunks, the leaves, warm tones and all the pretty shadows along the path!! Thanks- a wonderful post!!
