Tuesday Afternoon in Lithia Park in Ashland Oregon!

Good Morning Ashland! Tuesday morning after breakfast at the Breadboard we drove over to Lithia Park with the intention of going for a walk. When we got there it was just too cold for this Southern California boy!

We returned later in the day, on a beautiful Tuesday Afternoon, after the sun had come out and the weather had warmed up. We walked from the playground to the picnic area and back and Periscoped the first part of the walk and then saved it to Katch.

“Tuesday, afternoon, I’m just beginning to see,
Now I’m on my way, It doesn’t matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away. Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near, I’ve got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear explain it all with a sigh.
I’m looking at myself, reflections of my mind,
It’s just the kind of day to leave myself behind,
So gently swaying thru the fairy-land of love,
If you’ll just come with me and see the beauty of
Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday afternoon.”
~ The Moody Blues “Tuesday Afternoon”

Everytime we visit Lithia Park we discover something new! This trip we found the Japanese Garden in the park. It’s very tranquil and intimate with a pond and a small stream with running water. The cherry blossoms were blooming which added even more beauty to the landscaped garden area. There are benches and a small covered pavilion for sitting.

Another trip through Lithia Park! After breakfast at the Morning Glory Cafe on Sunday, I took a little walk. It was a beautiful slightly overcast morning, and the slow and even pace of drumming from the yoga group provided a very cool soundtrack for the beginning of our hike.
