Went to Irvine Park today. You may remember that the last park I visited had a damn built by the Army Corps of Engineers some time ago. Well, this one was much more exciting. I washed my hands at a sink that bore a plaque on which was written, “Improved by the Work Progress Administration 1935-36”. Now that is cool. Other coolness: the smell of the trees, the squirrels that ran across my path as I biked along, the bird that flew beside me for a few seconds as I sped along the path, and the peacock whose parking space I stole. That was a nice, nice way to spend a morning.
