Round Robin: A Day in the Park

Today's Round Robin challenge is to post a Perfect Scene Captioned. My photo is shot from a gazebo at Deep River Park in Lake County, Indiana. Both the park and the gazebo have a special place in my heart. The park is home to the historic mill in the background and site of many fond memories . Additionally, our son, Luke, and our daughter-in-law, Bree, were married in the gazebo almost two years ago on a cold and rainy day in May.

In addition to the mill, the park features wooded trails, maple syrup festivities, vintage baseball, and cross country skiing. My husband and I enjoy visiting the park any time of year, and any day in the park always turns out to be a fine day.

Hi Molly :)

What pretty scene. I have a couple parks near where I live, and on most days, they are my perfect scene. Thanks for playing.

Always, Carly

You're really lucky to have such a nice park to enjoy, all the open spaces around here are full of cow turds.

When I was growing up in Ohio, I would go to 4-H Camp near John Bryant State Park. There was an old mill there, and we'd spend one day hiking to get there, buy some hard rock candy, then hike back to camp. Your mill and park reminds me of that. Happy time and happy place in my life! Thanks!

That looks like a very peaceful park. The kind you go and feel relaxed when you leave.

Sounds like a great place. Your picture makes me want to go there almost as much as your description does.

Parks with such character are to be cherished. Just like the one we go to to meet my cousin half way between the big smoke and her lovely countryside. Nice to relax isn't it?

Nice place. Soon the green plants will be out and it will look a lot different. But any day at the park is a good day.
