Over the past three or four months I’ve been easing back into the dating pool. Nothing serious yet, just kind of testing the waters with a few different guys. Today I had a really nice first date with a fellow who wanted to introduce me to the hedonistic pleasures of the churrascaria. We went to Rafain Brazilian Steakhouse, where I enjoyed one of the most delicious meals I have ever eaten, and afterward he asked if I’d like to go for a walk. Of course the answer to that question is always yes, so he drove us to Trinity Park, which was another first for me.
So then I had to tell him about my park collection and take pictures of everything while we walked. I am nothing if not committed to my pointless hobbies.
I got pics of all three signs, just to make it extra official.
As the name suggests, this urban park lies along a very tame and manicured section of the Trinity River.
It has a decent-sized playground…
…one of those nifty bike-rental stations that are all over Fort Worth…
…and apparently there is a miniature railroad that transports passengers between Trinity Park and nearby Forest Park.
Also, the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens are right across the street! I have posted before about how awesome those are.
Trinity Park has all of the usual park amenities, like benches and picnic tables and gazebos and a duck pond next to the miniature train station. All in all, I would describe this park as delightful.
The company was very enjoyable too. My weakness is good conversation, and it’s rare to find someone who likes to talk as much as I do. He pleasantly blew my mind at one point when he described vegetable seeds as “data packets.” We were discussing the logistics of illegally downloading an organic pizza.
Today was a good day.
