Like I said earlier, us big kids enjoyed playing on this playground as much as the little ones. Below is my son flying in circles on one of the playgrounds equipment.
There is also a splash pad adjacent to the playground. The splash pad is designed to match the nature surrounding it. There are spray features and geysers resembling cattails, flowers, and animals.
After we played a bit, we headed out to check out the lagoon. A beautiful, wide paved trail meanders through a meadow and alongside the lagoon.
It is so fun to be walking on top of the water on the boardwalk. We thought the bridge looked so pretty and interesting, we continue our hike to see what lay ahead.
Underneath the bridge...what a photographers dream, eh? I have so many photos of Alethea following her Uncle Jordan from behind. Such a cutie pie!
Another "park" we went to isn't a park at all, but just a fun spot in downtown Carmel. It was our first night in Carmel and after a long eight hour drive we deciding to spend our evening taking a walk. Downtown Carmel is only a short walk from my children's old apartment. Here there are lots of posh restaurants and shops, but also plenty to entertain the kids too. My husband and son enjoyed a game of ping pong while Alethea looked on.
Atticus enjoyed playing on the playground equipment. What a handsome boy he is turning out to be!
Alethea loves to climb and here she is right at the top! I love the safety netting.
Playgrounds have sure changed a lot since I was a kid. "In my day" a playground consisted of a singular metal slide, some swings like the ones pictured above, monkey bars with concrete underneath, a seesaw, and maybe one of those spinning circular things if you were lucky. Yet, I remember we loved it! We never saw ourselves as disadvantaged and I don't remember anyone getting seriously hurt. My have times changed! I can't even imagine growing up with the playgrounds kids have today. I wonder if they realize how spoiled they are? 😀
Have A Great Day! Amy
