A Serene Park

 

Sholom Park in Ocala is such a very beautiful place!  It is very serene.  That is the purpose of this gorgeous park which is designed for strolling and reflection.  It is not a sports or picnic type of place.  It is open to the public and is mainly used by the folks from the adjacent On Top of The World development along with those from the Del Webb development.  It is open during the day and is free of charge.

While my hubby and I were at the park on Monday, I spotted a male Northern Cardinal bird and a Red-shouldered Hawk.  No sign of any owls or Great Blue Herons at all.  No sign of the former Great Blue Heron rookery.  I think over the past couple of years, stormy weather has taken its toll on the great trees where these wading birds and owls had previously nested.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the image.  Enjoy!

I am dedicating this blog post in memory of my late friend Donna who passed away on Easter in California.  She will greatly be missed.
