This week my wandering spirit led me to Maumelle Park near the Arkansas River.
There was a crisp, chilly wind blowing across the water.
As I wandered through the park I was surprised to see an old cemetery on a hill almost hidden by a wood fence. It was terribly neglected; fallen limbs, high weeds, and many broken grave markers. I did a little research and discovered it is the Ives Cemetery. I imagine at one time there was a small community here along the river. Maybe the Ive's family had the extra land to donate for a community cemetery. The oldest marked grave was 1876.
The rest of the time was spent watching the birds and ducks.
Thankfully I had tucked my zoom lens in my camera bag!
I certainly gave it a good workout!
This guy made me laugh.
He hit the water at a very high rate of speed.
Guess there's no putting on the breaks!
This is my favorite image of the day.
Is this not precious?
A little one snuggling.
I want to thank Lissa at LAF Customs Designs for hosting this link up each week.
It makes me get outside,
discover new things,
enjoy the beauty of Arkansas,
