Return to Heritage Park.


My boss was out of the office today, so I decided to expand my horizons and return to Heritage Park, rather than my regular stomping grounds.

I figured this second visit would involve more walking, and less exploring and picture-taking, since I really immersed myself in the whole experience the last time.  There was just so much to see, but today my head was not swiveling back and forth like the last time, so I could just enjoy the journey instead.

So, on this gorgeous morning, it was easy-peasy getting five miles walked.

I kept the camera in the case most of the time, deciding to rely on some of the photos I took the last trip and didn’t use for that day’s blogpost, but … there was a beautiful hawk soaring high above the Park today and I couldn’t resist taking its picture.


On the prior visit, I spent much time admiring and taking photos of the covered bridge.  It was the first time I’d seen one, and I’ve had a fascination with covered bridges since reading the novel “The Bridges of Madison County” and later seeing the film by the same name.


And, if this idyllic scene above with a couple snuggling on the covered bridge and ducks wandering around nearby doesn’t seem peaceful enough, how about this fisherman sitting there aiming to get his catch-of-the-day, despite the fact that the Park’s rules and regs make you throw that fish right back into Coan Lake?


It was perfect weather for today’s excursion.  My next trip to Heritage Park will be to view the Fall colors, so I’m guessing that visit is another month away perhaps?

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

    Yes it was beautiful Ann Marie – so peaceful there. Next time, I’ll plan a “Fall color tour” and take some more pictures. I’ll gauge the color of the leaves from Council Point Park and the neighborhood trees.
