Here comes the sun!: Stony Brook Park

Well it’s taken much longer than anyone wanted for us to get sunshine, but it’s finally here. It amazes me how it can be snowing Easter morning and the next weekend we are basking in 65 degree weather!

We took advantage of the perfect spring this past Sunday by driving to Dansville after church with the sunroof open. We grabbed some taco bell for lunch and watched a few planes take off at the airport.

Then we drove over to Stony Brook Park, our closest state park which is only 10 minutes from our house for a picnic.

The park has been closed since we moved out here. It’s still too early for the trails along the water, but the picnic area as well as the playground were well used by local families and their dogs enjoying the blue sky and first signs of green grass.

We ate our fast-food picnic then wandered around. The park has tennis and basketball courts, a baseball diamond, and a summer-time natural swimming pool.

We drove around then went to the southern entrance were there is a camp ground. This entrance was closed off so we moved on.

We know we will return later in the year. Looks like a great place to get out in nature without a long drive and maybe take a family dog to walk around (more on the dog topic to come).
