Howell Park is a small park with multiple coquina paths winding throughout. There's a stream full of tiny fish and a big pond full of turtles. I've seen birds, squirrels, raccoons and armadillos scamper across the trails. Last summer we had reports of otters swimming in the stream. And if you're in the park at dusk you can hear the owls hooting to each other. It's such a peaceful place right in the middle of the city. A brisk, walk through the park can improve my mood in 15 minutes.
Despite the beauty and shade of a thousand trees, it was unbearably hot yesterday. I ended up taking a few pictures and cutting our walk short. Sorry Jedi.
If you happen to be out this way, make sure to stop by Howell Park. It's a great place to picnic and take a few photos. Make sure to save some crumbs for the turtles. -- K
P.S. As an ACO I feel it necessary to point out that no leash laws were broken to get these shots. Jedi is securely tethered to a fixed object in both pictures -- I'm just getting better at positioning the camera to crop out the leash.
