An Ides Of March Oakland Lake Park Walk Around Fosdick Lake With Throngs Of Little Kids
That put Oakland Lake Park and Fosdick Lake on my mind. And so I took myself on a drive west for a couple miles and joined a throng of Spring Breakers enjoying the balmy Ides of March.
As you can see Oakland Lake Park has greened up nicely in preparation for the arrival of Spring in a few days.
As I was walking across Fosdick Dam a throng of kids were running towards me, led by a big dog. A little girl who was barely post toddler brought up the rear. When she got to me she looked up, let out a scream and turned around to run back to her mama.
Why are little kids so afraid of me? I must look like a sinister monster to them. Or maybe it's my walking stick that frightens.
By the time I got my phone out of its pocket, turned on and in camera mode the only kids remaining as photo subjects were the two little guys you see above.
This was one happy group of little kids, well, except for the little girl who ran back crying to the safety of her mama when she saw me.
