With the arrival of autumn, I headed to another city park today to observe the changing colors of the leaves. While I was probably just a tad early, I could still see several trees’ leaves beginning to turn red and orange.
This particular park had a lovely lake in its center with none other than boats for rent. Of course, I snatched one up for myself and rowed around the lake. It was quite a “peaceful” (although see below) experience, and I got to be up close and personal with the numerous duckies.
I did get some looks, though, as I was rowing my way around. I’m not sure if it was because a.) I had my own boat to myself whereas all the other boats had more than 1 person, b.) I was being rebellious and decided to row in the way opposite to everyone else, or c.) I was causing a ruckus because it’s my first time rowing a boat and I’m not too coordinated (even the duckies were flying away from me).
