Saturday Explorations

Feeling extremely lonely today, and depressed after watching Texas A&M lose a game it seemed they’d dominate after the first half, I decided to go read in the park for awhile and then go explore downtown a bit. Waco has this great park, Cameron Park, that is sort of a collection of smaller parks in one huge complex. There’s even a zoo. This is the place I took photos of a few weeks ago while riding my mountain bike. There are 25+ miles of hiking and biking trails of varying difficulties over a spread of several acres, plus about half a dozen smaller “subparks” I guess you could call them. Today’s destination was a large park at the top of a cliff overlooking the Bosque River. I sat around reading my Pete Townshend autobiography for a bit and took a few photos. I also attempted to take photos of people who didn’t know I was doing so, for the first time ever. I felt extremely creepy, I don’t know how street photographers do it honestly. At any rate, here are the results.

After that, I headed downtown, which was pretty much dead. I guess downtown Waco is not the place to be on a Saturday afternoon. I like how old everything is, making some places seem a bit seedy. I’m still upset I didn’t get my loft downtown when I moved up here but it’s a short drive. I did find a cafe that has jazz nights on Fridays so maybe I can actually go socialize. I also finally got photos of the Alico building, built 101 years ago, becoming the tallest building in the southwest for several years

  1. Don’t know why but the pictures don’t come up at this site. I can see the small icon size on the WordPress site but when I click over I don’t get the enlarged version here. They looked interesting though. I use foxfire if that makes any difference instead of IE

    • It must be your computer or internet. I’m in Chrome and I checked IE and both show up fine. If you click on a photo it should take you to my Flickr page for that photo. They should also be appearing in 1024 size on my blog.
