Leisurely Saturday morning

This is the wide, paved promenade around the large decorative pool in Rizal Park in yesterday's photo.

Very nice. I can see myself spending some quality time here...or maybe a photo safari.

It must be nice to walk around in short sleeve shirts and shorts! It's minus 15 degrees Celsius here right now and going colder tonight!

I haven't been to Luneta for quite some time and I miss going there. Thanks for posting this Hilda.

I would give just about anything to be able to walk along that promenade in shirt sleeves now.

This is a very nice shot, very colourful and lively. Seeing people in summer clothes make me long even more for spring time here in Western Europe!

This is a lovely public space!

Not a bright day, but a warm one, it appears, and with those colorful flags, the day is brightened anyway.

Rizal Park is so different now from what I remembered the last time I was there!

Bert:
So much friendlier now, 'no? I love what they've done to the park over the decades.

Roll on summer! In fact spring will do! Re: your question about window tax in England, it seemed less intrusive than income tax as all it required was an official to walk by and count how many you had. Glass was relatively expensive and so was a measure of wealth in days when there was strong resistance to the idea of divulging personal details about your revenue.

For sure. These flags color the day.

A wonderful promenade and a great day too.

PS. So glad you are back. MB

I wish we had a place like that here to go for a walk!
