Volonte Park

Today I went for a walk in Anderson, CA at Volonte Park. It is a wildlife trail around a wetland. The ACID (Anderson Cottonwood Irrigation District) canal has an aqua duct that goes over the top of the trail head on South Street. There is a skate park and baseball field and  I never imagined that it was such a nice trail.

It was a nice place to walk. I picked my first black berry of the season. They had special workout stations along the trail made by Playworld Systems. It is for 50+. That is a contrast to the "official Skate Park" and the baseball field that are in Volonte Park. Someone must have gotten a grant.
I plan to walk there each of the 8 days Ian has left of summer school. He will be done July 6th.
My mom used to tell me every summer, "Get a job or go to summer school." Next year I hope my son choose, "Get a job."

I have also joined the library reading program for the summer in Anderson. My next blog I will discuss some of the books I am reading.
