So I decided to talk about how I spent Wednesday in the park. Naturally, “the park”  in Saint Louis usually means Forest Park which is the largest of the 111 parks within the city’s boundaries. If you want to include the parks in Saint Louis County, you’d have to add 64 more. So in all, there are 175 parks within the land bordered by the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. But I usually just visit two or three.

Anyway, on Wednesday I went to Forest Park to celebrate the birthday of my oldest friend, Mr. Bill. He’s not really my oldest friend age-wise, it’s just that we’ve been friends for over forty continuous years and we live in opposites ends of the metropolitan area. I live in the north county, and he lives in the south city. So Forest Park, being in the middle, is a convenient place to meet. It’s also the sight of the Boathouse Restaurant.

The Boathouse is located on the largest of the park’s chain of lakes.DSC06695

That allowed us to watch this gorgeous fellow as he/she fished for his/her lunch.DSC06692

DSC06694If you’re wondering, I had fish and chips for lunch, too.

After lunch we strolled the park taking in the masses of blooming flowers.DSC06683









We also decide to take advantage of the Great Art Free Every Day at the Saint Louis Art Museum. But that will have to wait for my next post.
