I had the afternoon off today, so I started my weekend early. After a long, busy week at work, I always look forward to a restful and relaxing weekend. The theme today at Friday My Town Shoot Out! at http://mytownshootout.blogspot.com/ is "town tours." So I thought I'd just show you a few fun things to do on the weekend in my hometown of Pleasantville, New York. I took the first photo this afternoon at Nannahagan Park, where there is a nice little pond you can walk around and enjoy nature. Lo and behold, a white pelican showed up! I captured the pelican's reflection in the water. I'm also contributing this photo to Weekend Reflections at http://weekendreflection.blogspot.com/.
At the same park, there is a little, rustic bridge over the pond. I like the shadows the leaves are casting, and the bridge invites you to cross over it and explore the woods!
After getting some good exercise by walking and playing, it's time for a delicious little dessert at Jean Jacques, a French bistro in town. They even have a small sculpture of the Eiffel Tower in the window. But I was focusing on the dessert, tartallette au fruits, lovely pastry topped with strawberries, kiwis, peaches, and blueberries!
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend with lots of fun!
