A Walk in the Park

I live pretty close to the university. Often I take the bus but it is about a half hour walk. Most of the walking route leads through a beautiful park and I am posting some photos of it.

The park was created in the nineteenth century when Germans believed that the air in Luneburg was particularly healthy, being away from the big cities and having salt in the air. Of course, it is also true that fires were burning to distill the salt from the water ....

Anyway, the park then was aptly named Kur (or cure) Park and people came to the park to take in the fresh air. They still do. On a sunny weekend, the park is very busy with people sunning themselves, throwing frisbees, and playing with their dogs.

It is a nice walk and, now that it is getting colder, the leaves are beginning to change colors and fall to the ground. Not so green but just as beautiful.

Hi John -
The park looks pretty restful in your pics. It did cool off briefly, but back to Indian summer now. The salt-making festival sounded like fun. Keep up the good work!
