Founders Park

I re-discovered a small pocket park here in town which is only a block and half from my store.  I have been able to get over there 3 days for about 15 minutes each time. It is quiet and so far have not encountered another visitor.
There are 3 benches scattered over the area but only one near the water garden which is from a natural spring.  This is the site of the founding of Huntsville and where the original trading post was where Pleasant Gray traded with the Indians in 1843. 
I love the park and have benefited from having that quiet time when my husband can take over for me at the store for a few minutes out of the day.  It is also a prayer place for me,  not that you need a special place.
I wanted to show you some pictures of this tiny park.
