Mead Park in the Snow

It was a nice day today — sunny and almost balmy. The temperature reached the low 40s. Today was a lull between two winter snows — the lake effect snow event that we endured the past week and a new winter storm event that is coming our way tomorrow evening.

Bob and I went to Erie today. We ate lunch at Old Country Buffet, arriving just as 70-80 youngsters from Warren were leaving. We know the children were from Warren because they were getting on two Warren County School District buses. Lunch was good. We especially liked the fried chicken, meatloaf, seafood salad, orange chicken and dessert. As is usual for me, my dessert was an ample serving of volcano chocolate cake with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top. Bob’s dessert was chocolate cake, cookies and apple crisp. After lunch we went to Target. We made a couple purchases and then left for home. On the way home we stopped at Mead Park in Corry, PA.

The late afternoon lighting was exquisite. I photographed the pond and arched bridge. By the way, you might recall that Bob and I stopped at this park earlier this year. Click here for my blog post about the park from that visit.

After capturing these photographs, we continued our drive back home.

Mead Park

Our friends, Susan and Dave M., visited Mead Park last week. I saw photographs that Susan had taken at the park on her Facebook page. I liked the park and didn’t recognize it as a park in my hometown. I asked Susan the name and location of this park. She told me it was Mead Park in Corry, PA. On the way home from this past Saturday’s day trip to Erie Bluffs State Park, Bob and I stopped briefly at Mead Park. Mead Park is a 50 acre park located on the west side of the city.

I had not seen playground equipment such as this until we visited Mead Park.

I liked the artsy look of these two bridges.

This Muscovy Duck is one of several ducks that make the Mead Park pond their home.

We saw only a small portion of Mead Park. We will most definitely make a return visit to this park!
