Virginia Park Pond
When I was young at the pond, I remember waving my hand slowly in the water., I could feel the rocks through the shallow water, I remember feeling the bright warm sun above me and remember skipping rocks over the water. Although, the rocks were rough to skip on, I would always be running and skipping, so much that I remember my feet getting bruised.
When I was young at the pond, I heard the birds chirping from above and the small waves of water splashing against the rocks and pebbles. I tasted and felt the pond. It smelled like grass and seaweed combined together. Regardless, the smell didn't bother me at all. I liked it because, it was like natural, at least that is how it smelled to me.
When I was young at the pond, I felt at home. I had a feeling this place was my comfort place. I felt relaxed, even calmed down. I remember thinking that this was my escape place, a way to shut down everything. I could relax since it was very easy to take my mind off things outside of the pond.
At the pond, I'll always remember the warm air breezing past. I will never forget when I'd sit there for hours until the sun falls. Most of the time it was me and a good childhood friend, him and I would bring our favourite snacks and drinks sit at a huge rock surrounded by smaller ones watching the calm water. Him and I would go there just to be there and take our mind off of thing. Hanging out together was easy to do that and especially at the pond.
