Going without destination.
Walking only to see.
Discovering new and interesting pieces of Arkansas.
That's what I enjoy.
This week's walk found me in MacArthur Park located in the heart of Little Rock.
It is the city's oldest municipal park, established in 1892.
The park was named in honor of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who was born in an arsenal building nearby.
A quiet section of the garden honors Arkansas' missing children.
A little further down the brick promenade is the Contemplative Garden that surrounds a lovely little pond.
Around the pond there's quite a variety of ducks and lots of them!
Ducks who like to stroll down the promenade showing off their brilliant colors and fine feathers.
For some reason, this guy liked me. The rest of the ducks just ignored me when they realized I didn't have any food. But this one, he followed me for quite a while. I thought it rather strange, but his wings stayed out all the time.
Even the littlest of the ducks were strolling along the brick walkway.
Following mom and dad to the wildflowers.
There were ten of these fuzzy little ones.
Quite fun to watch.
The ducks seemed to have more of a purpose than I did; to eat and swim.
Me, I just enjoyed the quiet stroll in a lovely park!
