It’s Finally Spring!

parkA familiar odor reached me when I got to RiverWalk Park. The smell wafted across the path and the grass and floated into the air as the river moved against the rocks.

The air had that smell.

It was Rye Playland, the Long Island Sound, summers at the beach club where my parents had a cabana. It was the smell of spring that waited too long to arrive.

mossEven the moss on the rocks looked pretty when the river made them shiny. A few boats went by and turned when they reached the green buoys per the Regulated Navigation Area. They looked really tiny as they passed the giant crane.

I smiled at people passing by and seated, and they returned the grin. The weather was warm, relieved to come out from under a horrible winter. The sky was smiling, too.

old and newYou could see the contrast of old to new: the bridge next to sections of its eventual replacement. Five months ago the first set of piers was built, and two weeks later their formwork was removed. Cars and trucks driving on the bridge looked like toys by comparison.

Camera in hand, I walked along the path and reminisced about earlier times.

I’d like to know what you think.

      When we’d visit my aunt and uncle in Florida in December during school breaks, I remember the weather was warm, and it felt like summer. I wasn’t aware you had seasons.
