Fitting a picnic into the middle of the workweek can be tough, so yesterday we snuck a quick-nic into our routine. Cooper gets out of school early on Wednesdays; instead of just one of us heading up to Lakewood Ranch, we both went. We grabbed a giant sub from Sweetbay, a hungry Cooper from school, and popped over to Adventure Park. We walked the main trail but never found a picnic table…a seat and a view is all you need.
Adventure Park is in the Greenbrook section of Lakewood Ranch. It has nature trails, ball fields, a paw park, and a outdoor roller rink…but quick-nics don’t allow for much exploring or photography. Although these birds were really making themselves known. They squawked non-stop; I had to get at least one shot.
But it was quickly on to grocery shopping, so we were off to King Family Farm and Market. In addition to blueberries, zucchini and the rest of our produce for the week, we picked up local cherry clams for dinner and eggs for the morning.
