Travel diary IX

Madison is located on an isthmus between two large lakes, Lake Mendota and Lake Monona. The city has done a pretty good job of keeping the lakeshores free from commercial development; there are a lot of public parks and walking trails along the lakes. This afteron, after getting back from Illinois, i went to one such park: Picnic Point, a thin wooded peninsula extended into Lake Mendota. I walked out to the tip of the peninsula and found a well-shaded bench overlooking the water, facing west. The sound of the birds in the trees and the waves against the shore is very pleasant and restful. Only the occasional roar of a passing motor boat disturbs the serenity of this spot.
