Saturday, when we took our spontaneous trip to Austin to spend the day with Son, we wanted to take him out of the city. We didn’t go far at first, just down the street to Mayfield Park. The park is still in the city of Austin, however it doesn’t feel like it.
It was our first stop of the day and when arriving, we saw plenty of two creatures…peacocks and turtles. (If you’ve been following long, you may recall our last trip to Mayfield Park and When Peacocks Fly!)
The ponds are abundant and beautiful with all the lily pads.
The turtles are quite happy making them their home.
We had one in particular who wanted to give us a tour of the place.
Only problem was, we didn’t have all day and he was…well…moving mighty slow!
