richardson-taylor nature preserve

Brian and I took a long walk today at the Richardson-Taylor Preserve north east of Greensboro near Lake Townsend.

I didn’t know about this one until I read about it in the local Pearson Audubon Nature Notes, which is an e-mail that I love to get.

From Audubon: “This 440-acre preserve is composed primarily of mature forest and beaver marshes. Designated as a “passive use park,” the preserve is mostly undeveloped and has no facilities such as restrooms or water fountains. However, it offers about four miles of marked trails beginning at the parking lot on Plainfield Road that has an information kiosk with a trail map.”

It’s nice because there are few people there. You can have it to yourself, just you and the nature. The trails are lengthy and numerous. One eventually interfaces with the Greenway near Strawberry Road. That one would take some planning. We’re going to look into it.

2020 Kirkwood Independence Day Parade

Here is the 2020 Kirkwood Independence Day Parade. The parade participants outnumbered the spectators. It seems to lean Republican, usually not this much, but this is a “special” year. You can assess the candidates all by yourself.

The White House cap is a decoy. 😁

Bottles of hand sanitizer were being handed out, which we were pleased to get. The bottle has that “lube” shape. Can I get ya a popper to go with it? 🎉

triad city beat gets facebook block

Triad City Beat has been a good way to find out what has been going on locally during protests. This media org has gotten the Facebook block. How odd! Even the Mayor of Greensboro is concerned.

price park after a lot of rain

Brian and I took a walk today at Price Park. It was beautiful. All the rain made it a bit swampy, but it smelled fresh and good.
