2016 has been a rough year on Sweetie and me. The weather has been perfect for growing allergies leading us both to some bad bouts with sinusitis. Most of our walking has been indoors at Grapevine Mills Mall. One fine weekend, though, we risked headaches, sneezing, and wheezing to walk along White Rock Lake.
It was a beautiful day, drawing out the bikers, strollers, skaters, runners, dog walker, and joggers. The ducks were active on the lake with a nice breeze coming up from the south.
Spring had begun blooming.
Most people paid attention to the signs. (I always read the signs, even if I don’t always follow them.)
In the 20+ years I have lived in Dallas, this was the first time I’d ever been to this end of White Rock Lake. Sweetie and I spent some time admiring the rush of water from the recent spring rains.
I hadn’t even realized that there were more than one set of falls! Nor had I known that there had been a fish hatchery in this area.
I really like this bike fix-it station.
This is the quiet side of the falls.
I ended up learning quite a bit on this 10k walk.
My 2016 resolution: walk all around White Rock Lake!
