Deserted Park

My favorite area of green is right across the street. Often that area of green is my sanity! Just seeing it as I walk down the drive reminds me that I'm not really trapped, feeling surrounded by high fences, other houses & decidedly dodgy neighbours!
The freedom is just 'over there', should I need to escape the feeling of being enclosed for a few minutes.

Today the park is deserted. Completely.


No Kiddies in the playground.....


No bigger kids playing ball games in the middle area...


No one sitting in the shade....or in my favorite seat that causes me to daydream of a laptop!

Why? Because it is yet another scorcher - I suspect the highest temperature we have had so far this summer.
Yesterday it reached 32.6°(about 90°) & at 9.00pm last night it had finally dropped to around 29°. One of those nights when just a sheet will suffice - & you pray for no emergencies in the middle of the night ;o)

According to "wunderground" the temperature here in St Albans is currently 34.6° (a little over 94°)....it's 32° in the lounge. Thank goodness for very little humidity & a fan!

I think the beach might warrant a trip a bit later!!

That is a beautiful park. The beach sounds like a fantastic idea. Don't forget the sunblock!! It's also going to be another scorcher here!! Around the 30's as well.

Chat soon.

Wow! It is hot there! It beats our weather. Next week our highs will be in the negative numbers. Tonight we are supposed to get 4-8 inches of snow. Yuck! Enjoy the warmth!
