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.

Lithia Park is the largest and most central park in Ashland, Oregon. It consists of 93 acres of forested canyonland around Ashland Creek, stretching from the downtown plaza up toward its headwaters near Mount Ashland. Its name originates from the lithium oxide found in the stream water.  The park has two large green area, a bandshell for public musical performances, two duck ponds, a large playground, tennis courts, community buildings and, in winter, an ice skating rink. It also offers picnic areas and miles of hiking trails.  The park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

NOTE: I was going to bake a cherry cheesecake, but because I knew there would be enough dessert and due to a lack of “baking enthusiasm”, it did not happen.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this meal as much as I did eating it! And there were leftovers…

And then the “TURKEY COMA” followed by a nice nap. I was invited to another party, but had to send my regrets. Too full, too tired and too late. It was a wonderful day.
