More photos from my walk in the afternoon of Midsummer Eve. As I said in the previous post, it was very hot - and along the way, choosing where to go, I came up with the motto "no more than two minutes between shadows"... (phew)
Palm tree (in a pot), where I entered the city park.
One of my favourite sculptures, I keep forgetting its name but it makes me think of ancient 'magic portals' to other worlds...
The sound of the fountain in the river is refreshing on a hot day.
Nowadays it's possible to walk along the river about half the way between the city centre and where I live. (It wasn't always.) A blessing on a hot summer day - and all year round, really...
▲View from one of the bridges crossing the river. There are apartment buildings on one river bank (left); on the other side, the path splits, and you can either follow the river for a little bit longer (until the next bridge), or turn right, up a little hill to an old cemetery.▼
I sat down to rest for a while on a bench in the shadow.
I've kept walking around, along and across this cemetery almost daily for 14 years now - i.e. ever since I moved to where I now live. When going into town I walk either along or across it (and then I can choose from basically three different ways to continue). But the cemetery is also a really good place to just go for a short stroll - only a few minutes from home, away from traffic, and with big old trees providing shadow in the summer, and a variety of flowers to enjoy from spring to autumn.
