A couple weeks ago I posted about one of my favorite places to write. Here’s another spot I like (although this one tends to be more for reading than writing, at least recently).
Although this spot tends to see more traffic than spot #1 (photographers and birders watching the bald eagles in nearby trees, joggers and bikers and dog walkers along the path), it’s right next to the river, providing a soothing backdrop of the water going over the dam. There are multiple places to sit: park benches on that overlook on the right, rocks on the river bank, and grassy spots perfect for a blanket.
Plus this is really close to where I live, so I can easily stop by when I need some time to read, write, or just sit and think.
