And The Rains Keep Coming

A few hours at Congers Lake Park is a real treat.

In between thunderstorms we walked for a few hours at Congers Lake Park. The sun was busy trying to dry things out.

The park is dedicated to children who died nearby, in the worst school bus accident in the history of New York State. It was over 30 years ago, and the crash led to all sorts of new rules for bus safety and bus drivers.

The park is any kids dream, no matter what age you are. There's a great skateboard park ... and great wide smooth paved trails for those who are confined to wheel chairs.

Besides roller hockey games, birthday parties are held at the park, and they include 1 hour on the roller rink.

This is a park for everyone.

Some teens had the same idea we did ~ to get some good old Vitamin D before it started storming again. Sure enough, by the time we got home, it was hailing, and after the hail came another thunderstorm.
