A Walk In A Park


It was a nice day for a walk in the park Sunday afternoon.  Not too hot with clear blue skies. 


Can you guess what this bridge used to be in its former life?



My daughter and I took a little road trip over the weekend.  Stops at Lowe's and WallyWorld in this small city were a must, but we made time for a visit to a couple of the parks there. 

This small park is my favorite because it has the bridge.  I didn't get many photos at the other park as there were too many people and cars around and we were pressed for time.  
 

This little bridge is only for walking, of course, and is made out of a boxcar from a train derailment in 1986.  Did you guess what it was?  

I think the railings are sort of like fencing so I'll link up tomorrow with Good Fences, too. 

Happy Wednesday to you!

  3. Such a pretty young lady that you have as a daughter.... great tan! I kind of guessed the bridge, but I couldn't quite figure out the top and the sides together. Very neat and such a great way to use the top of the old boxcar. Glad you had a good time on this get-a-way!! Hope your day is filled with many Blessings....

  4. First and foremost, what a beautiful daughter you have!! And what a lovely way to spend the day together.
    At first glance I thought "train" when I saw the bridge and then I thought, "No, bridge". Thanks for clearing up that confusion for me :D.

  17. So cool! I think I would live there! How far away do you live? I guessed that it used to be a trolley or a streetcar. Close, but not right. Your daughter is beautiful! You would both win a mother/daughter beauty contest.
