On a safe walk, I decided this piece of common space I pass in the Village of Liverpool carries a shape that is not quite a square. No, First and Second streets angle quite toward each other. Washington Park is quite like a triangle.
Of course I must throw one more look back at Onondaga Lake Park when I finish my safe walk.
Certain trees look different every time I safe walk past them in Onondaga Lake Park.
During a February work break safe walk I saw one other soul out during a cold not-yet-noon time slot. And a dog. Look down the path …
The sign says so much. Most of the Onondaga Lake proper is frozen over this February, but the marina area still holds some moving waters. In fact, that one area looks like a good, old-fashioned pond on a farm to drop your line. Or maybe I’ve been taking work break safe walks during too cold…
My February work break safe walk led me to the refreshing sight of the sun shining over the Onondaga Lake Park trees and off the frozen-over waters. I had a few seconds to appreciate the view, take a photo, and book on back toward the library.
On a recent work break safe walk — short, yes — I passed a tangle of the taken-down Lights on the Lake displays. I don’t blame the workers from resting them until, well, maybe a warm spell?
Entering into the walk zone during a cold break from my library job, I keep telling myself that we are halfway through winter and rounding the corner to spring. Right?!
So when I explain to folks here in Bloggyville about where exactly Liverpool is, I always come up with the phrase “just outside of Syracuse.” During a recent safe walk in the Village, this sight struck me. Exactly two miles outside, from this busy corner.
This bare tree appears to be sad about the empty marina behind it. Ah, January in Onondaga Lake Park.
