Hayward Lake Park is a very picturesque location. Many people visit this park, for its off-leash dog park, to walk old railway trail running along its western side, or to use the beach. At the far north part of the park is a gazebo, which was a prop from the 1989 film, "We're No Angels". There is a bench next to this gazebo where I will often go whenever I am in the park and just want to be in a peaceful place to meditate. I have done this for over 10 years. It is a quiet part of the park where few people frequent. This is my solitary place.
Directly in front of this bench, where I would sit, stands a large Douglas Fire tree. I have always admired this tree and thought, "One day I will paint this tree". So I have, making sure Hayward Lake appears in the background.
