The days are cooler. We decided to go to Olbrich Gardens on last Saturday and for a paddle on Lake Wingra on Sunday.
The gardens were cleverly arranged with one way paths to avoid congestion and allow for social distancing.
In only an hour at Olbrich, we felt we’d been away for the whole day. We wore masks, and could enjoy the lovely afternoon.
A hundred other people had the same idea, but the gardens are expansive and so well organized we’d only see a group of three at a time. We arrived home feeling peaceful.
After the successful outing, we thought about renting a canoe the next day. Lake Wingra has a popular boat rental where you can take out kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, even a duck shaped paddle boat. Wingra means duck in the Ho-Chunk language, the original inhabitants of the area.
The three of us paddled for an hour, heading up a creek tributary to see ducks and watch birds. The time went by fast, but like the previous day we felt refreshed.
If you know the names of the first flowers, I’d like to find out. Happy weekend!
Gracias for visiting Fake Flamenco! I appreciate your comments and poems. ¡Olé! –Rebecca
