Armed with the information on how to walk there, we finally did. We've been having rain off and on for a couple of days and I didn't want to go that far in case of a downpour.
We went out our back gate along the pathway, to the dog park and through to an adjoining neighborhood full of sweet little houses with signature yards of Davis, CA, mainly because they are mostly natural landscapes and not lawns. Natural landscapes that were painstakingly put together with a lot of do-re-me. A good living for landscapers in our area, I hope.
At the end of the street we came to a park which turned out to be the famous West Pond! We chose a direction and wound around the pond, which is a wildlife sanctuary. We discovered why we've been hearing ducks and geese all the time.
We remarked that if we'd never moved over here, we wouldn't have known about this great natural area so close to home. It's a treasure in every way.
On our way back into our own neighborhood, we ran into a fellow resident whom we had met on move-in day. We told her about our fantastic trip, and she asked, "Oh! Do you know about the NORTH pond?!" So, we're having dinner with her soon to get the scoop on the North Pond.
Hope you have a good weekend, in some wide open spaces. It's good for the soul.
