After doing some hills, we ended up in the development known as Sharingbrook. While there, we enjoyed the sunrise:
|"Oooh, look at the sunrise!"|
"Keep an eye out for Cicadas, Mags!"
That's one of the things I love about Ragnar - he knows what's really important! The road we were on, for some reason, is a real Cicada hot-spot!
Anyway, we looped on through, then exited at the big road:
|"Anneberg Park, straight ahead!"|
"I love that park!"
Instead of sticking to the roads, we hit the trail that runs along the perimeter of the park! Crazy as it sounds, it's called the Perimeter Trail. None of us had ever been on it, so it was a really exciting adventure!
Some parts are paved:
And some are dirt and gravel:
There was a fork off the trail. We wanted to see where it went! We took this bridge over Wildcat Creek:
|"Check for 'gators, Ragnar!"|
I was serious. Some jerk stole some alligators from a rescue/rehab place and "set them free" in Wildcat Creek. Sadly, one didn't make it, but the other was found alive a couple days ago and was returned to Reptile World. Anyway ... getting back to more serene things ... after the bridge there was a small trail:
|"Looks like it goes to that housing development, everybody!"|
Mom and Dad thought it looked like an interesting thing to try once the weather cools off; we headed back to the park.
The trail was nice and shady; Ragnar and I like the woodsy parts!
There are lots of ball fields all over Anneberg, for baseball and soccer! This next part of the trail ran right alongside one:
And let's not forget perhaps the best feature of the park -- the Anneberg Ocean!
Once back at the entrance, we looped back through a couple different housing areas; we took the shadiest route we could!
|"Almost home, Ragnar! Less than a mile!"|
"What a great walk this has been!"
It was a great walk - and very scenic and serene, too! Thanks for coming with us -- don't forget to rehydrate!
