A break from work

Of the 100 acres in Downey devoted to parks, boasting of golf courses, tennis courts, fishing ponds, and other recreational areas, this humble park barely gets a nod. The Brookshire Children's Park consists of a swing set, some rocks, a picnic table, a few things to climb on, a small field, and this guy; the turtle that will forever remind me of field trips in Junior High. Our teacher walked us from then South Middle School (now Sussman Middle School) a few blocks away and let us run around for a while in the middle of the school day.

I still go there and just sit in the shade for a while, just giving myself a break from the busy work week. At the corner of Brookshire and Imperial, it is amazing how actually calming it can be.

  1. Looks like a really sturdy turtle. I like how the head casts a shadow. Nice shot.
