Silver Lake Regional Park 6/27/2010

I kept on having to drive by there on my way to a car chase and decided to stop the other day.  I haven’t been here in thirty some years.  We used to go camping and boating here when we were kids.

It sure was peaceful and quiet there.  Not for long, though….they’re building a school right next door.

On the way out I stopped by the now fenced off quarry.  We used to skip school to go there.

I remember laying on a raft on my stomach and getting the backs of my legs so sunburned that I couldn’t bend them at the knees.  That was the 2nd time I had ran away from home and this is as far as I got.  I was almost 17 then….young and stupid!  I think my parents then finally gave up on trying to keep me at home and gave me permission to move in with my friends.  I was still going to school and was also working. 

I wonder why some of us while we are young, make things so hard for ourselves.

I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
