Weekend Snapshot number 3

The guidelines for weekend snapshot said that the snapshots can be ones you've taken during the week so I decided to go on a walk Wednesday, with my camera. I snapped pictures of places while they were pretty empty but would be filled with activity over the weekend.First a picture of me walking. Boy my sneakers are clean. That's worth a picture due to how unusual it is.I walked over a bridge that leads to a tennis court. The court looks pretty uneven to me but people do play there, especially over the weekend.
Then I walked past the pool. They put an inflatable dome over the pool in the winter so it's a year round pool. Normally the dome goes up after labor day and comes off after memorial day. I'm not sure what the delay is. Maybe since it's been a warm September they think it will be too hot with the dome. Once the dome goes up, there is heat but no air conditioning.
My last recreational shot is where they have high school and community baseball games. Looks like there will be a game soon. Maybe I'll catch it. Sometimes when I walk past the baseball diamond there is a game going on and I stop to watch for awhile.I decided to shoot the score board because the parks and recreation workers were doing some work on the baseball diamond. They didn't look like they would appreciate me taking their picture so I turned my camera away from them.

Here's the Weekend Snapshot link to find other participants and/or to join in the fun. The WS post day is Monday. However, people post from different time zones so it's already Monday some places and I tend to post on Sunday since Monday is a busier day for me.

I love love to take a walk in that place, so relaxing and beautiful. You are "lucky" to have that place to go to for a walk. If we want to do that, we have to travel by car. Sigh.

Come visit my WS entry. Have a great week, Carver! :)

Thanks to all the weekend snapshot crew and others for comments. I've had trouble leaving comments on a few weekend snapshots so if I miss you it's accidental. Some of the security codes are beyond my visual abilities.

The bridge looks really nice. More than a tennis court, it feels like it will lead one to a secret garden. :)

Just a comment on the Lantana photo. I get Verbena and Lantana mixed up. I can't imagine why but I have this one in your photo.

Thanks to all the W.S. visitors and Mama Bear, I have the same issue with mixing up plants that aren't really alike. I have some verbena as well as lantana although I don't have any recent pictures of the verbena and at this point it's all past flowering until spring.
