A Day in the Dallas Library
As they say, there are times when your innermost self yearns for knowledge in an unquenchable way. Having just moved to Dallas uptown and still making friends of sorts here in Texas, I made a decision to spend my weekend at the library to kill off the boredom that had crept in since I had a free afternoon.
I made my way to the Dallas Library. I had been told that it was an interesting place to visit and spend time. I fell in love with the place.
It was well designed and huge!
There are various sections catering for kids and adults as well as wifi. So I can actually carry my laptop next time round and do my research on anything and everything. I came across the Spring Garden that was like a breath of fresh air because I love plants and flowers in particular.
So even though I am the new gal in town, I’ve found a place that is appealing to my senses. A place where I can lock myself out of this world, and enjoy the serenity, while trying to make friends with like-minded strangers.
A Visit to “The World’s Smallest Park”
My boyfriend and I are nature a lover so any time we go on a tour, our schedule includes visiting something nature related. This time, we were in Portland and decided to go to the Mill Ends Park, which has a rich history.
It’s not big.
Actually, it’s a relatively tiny park but occupies a big space in the hearts of the locals. I liked the place because of the reviews that we had read on yelp and so it was a place we couldn’t ignore.
As is usually the case, we carried our cameras and took photos of the miniature Ferris wheel and statues including the diving board for butterflies and swimming pool. It liked the experience because of the commitment of the locals to its maintenance and upkeep. I found it a romantic location because of the many weird stories about it.
This place reminds me of my childhood and the fairy tales that we read about. I will be back in Portland to spend some more time there in the near future.
Wish me luck.
