A pleasant stroll

Hello, everyone.

Today, since a cool front had arrived and brought sunshine and drier breezes, we took an after-lunch walk. We explored the McAllen Nature Center.

The Nature Center has been in the city for many decades. In the last few years the city has taken steps to make it more pleasant for visitors. (It had been neglected for quite a while.) They have a cactus garden, a few picnic tables, and some bird-watching benches in the brushy area. Some of the benches are convenient to bird feeders.
