Hayward Lake Park is a very picturesque location. It opened around 1912, so it has some age attached to it. Many people visit this park, for its off-leash dog park, to walk along the old railway trail that runs along the west side of the lake, 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 close 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 the bench, where I sit, is a large Douglas Fir tree. I have always admired this tree and often thought, "One day I will paint this tree". And so I did, making sure Hayward Lake appears in the background.
