Today I went to a free event and kayaked up a river. Afterwards I stopped to take a few pictures of downtown Battle Creek. One of the pictures turned our really grainy on my phone so I added it to my PICSART app and made it look more like a painting. Such a wonderful day… really ❤.
I have lived in Michigan most of my life, and have only seen a portion of it’s natural and created places. In late March a friend of mine mentioned a place I had never heard of, a park with all cement bridges that were made to look like the texture of wooden bridges. Who knew this charming place was just an hour drive away.
To know more about this park check out it’s Wikipedia linkor click on the picture below to read the green sign.
We first stumbled upon these lookalike stumps that are actually chimneys to the house above.
Each bridge had its own personality and charm. The texture really was amazing! I often thought that maybe cement had been poured over wood.
Along the way to each bridge were interesting abstract images in the water that flowed underneath and inside man made ponds.
Besides the cement bridges the park also had benches, large bird houses, a pond, a water fountain and so much more.
My Friend, Susan, that introduced us to this place managed to take a few pics of me in my element with nature.
My favorite experience here, was of meeting the huge tree in the center! Well that and seeing these little guys below.
I hope you feel as if you walked through the park with us! I’m thinking of doing more walks like this. What did you think about all the pictures, were there too many or was it all enjoyable?
I’ll be posting again in 2 days. Thursday’s post will be about the “Spring into the Arts” art walk, that happened May 18th. See ya then!
