James E. Grey Preserve

Thursday Nancy, son Joe and I went to the James E. Grey Preserve to do some walking and to show Joe some more of the different parks we have in the area.
We told Joe that the road was rough and full of pot holes, after you leave the main  road and out to the Preserve. But we had a surprise after turning off the main road, the road to the Preserve had a new asphalt surface on it which made a world of difference.
Also getting out to the river they had extended the boardwalk and added a kayak launch pad
We were glad to see the improvements that were made.
The river has a nice smooth flow to it with hardly a ripple.
This place looks like a real jungle
A nice 1/4 mile of boardwalk the makes it nice for Nancy, because she takes her walker when we are out here.
This is one scenic spot I like with the small island in the river with the tallest palm tree in the preserve on it.
Its a jungle out there.  At the end of the boardwalk there is a wide dirt trail, which Joe and I took.  Nancy waited on us at the  gazebo that is at the end of the boardwalk.
A couple of geese enjoying the day swimming in the river.
A couple of leaves to remind us that it is winter time even though the temperatures were in the middle 70's.
Even a flower or two here in the winter months.
Son Joe enjoyed taking a bunch of photos and the day here while where he lives in Tennessee has four inches of snow.
We had a very nice day with us stopping at Applebee's for supper.

Today is my watching college basketball games.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
