Look closely and you will find a hammock in this photo. Also, the Uptown Skyline is in the background. We enjoy long walks on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway while someone appears to enjoys long naps in a hammock.
On the weekends, we enjoy walking on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway and we especially enjoy the trees. This tree is found at the entrance to Freedom Park. As you can see it was back lit by the evening sun.
Following are links to post of trees we have shared in the past.

Continuing a transportation theme, we are sharing this photo of the train at Freedom Park near Uptown Charlotte. We enjoy watching children play on this train when we visit the park. Our grandson plays on it regularly. A plaque says the train was built in 1920 and when retied was one of the last steam locomotives in regular service.
This photo was taken at the intersection of West 3rd Street and South Church Street in Uptown Charlotte. Following are links to the website for Romare Bearden Foundation and the Park Design with detail about the gardens.
This photo was taken near 1000 Blythe Boulevard on the Little Sugar Creek greenway.
Jogging with the kids on the Little Sugar Creek greenway near Uptown Charlotte.
Playing the chimes at Romare Bearden Park is not only enjoyed by the young but also the young at heart. I’ll admit I play them regularly (smile) … recently I heard a guide explain that the park, flowers, fountains, and rocks were laid out following the pattern of a collage which was one of Romare Bearden styles.
I was pleased to have this photo opportunity … a young girl running and jumping on the Green in Uptown Charlotte .. glad my camera has a high speed shutter. Notice the fish sculptures in the background.
Our Saturday morning rituals include taking coffee to the Green (a park in front of our condo) and enjoying the activity. We always sit on a bench next to the fish sculptures and fountains. The reason is because they come with built in entertainment. Watching the children play is a joy and this Saturday there was a wedding at Saint Peters Catholic Church next to the fountains. In the background of this photo you can see one of those attending in a very colorful dress.
