As I’ve said before, Cameron Park near downtown Waco is a great day to spend a Saturday or Sunday. Whether you’re a hiker, a biker, a walker, a runner, or you just want to take a cruise on a windy road or read a book in the shade, Cameron Park is for you. Heck, you can even rent a kayak or use your own and go paddling on the Brazos River.
This weekend was a nice rest from the “cold” (cold for central Texas anyway) weather we’ve been having, and both days were perfect for a day in the park. Feeling the need to get out of my apartment despite my allergies setting back in, I headed out, camera and book in hand, for a drive down to my favorite place in town.
This day I decided to hit up Emmons Cliff and was immediately jealous when I saw a couple of kayakers paddling on the lazy Brazos.
The cliff offers a great view of the rural part of Waco, with a horse farm right across the river.
I was pleasantly surprised how well the zoom was working today on my little Nikon P7000
I never go anywhere without a Nalgene bottle. If there’s one thing the Army taught me, it’s that you can never have enough water.
On the way out, I decided to head down to the lower part of the park, where the paved riverside trail is, to do some people watching before taking off for dinner and some Starbucks. The underside of the Herring Ave. bridge is a cool place to sit when the park is full of kids. It was full of kids today, but I decided to take a photo of the cool perspective from the riverbank.
