 The park was filled with strollers, nappers, happy children enjoying a wonderful pleasant and sunny afternoon after a particularly hard, long winter.

 As this picture was taken, those shoes were my only ones, having left my bag o' TOMS at the last hotel. Along with my make-up case. Long story, don't ask. Generally, you know, I am much more of a beauty, but, although I bought a limited supply to get me through, my magic was in a bag in Burlington. Which I got back, woo hoo.
