Muralist at Work, Edinburg

This afternoon was quite hot so I decided that Edinburg Town Park was a good place for Charlie's adventure. There we can walk in the shade of tall pine trees.

The park also has a softball diamond, playground, tennis court, and a swimming pool. There were lots of people enjoying the pool, many of them teenagers. I was surprised to see what looked like a mural on a wall inside the fenced area, so I stepped closer. A young woman was painting a mural. She was dressed for the hot weather. Perhaps she would get in the pool to cool off.

I was able to take a few pictures through spaces in the chain-link fence. I thought she might be painting an eagle, but when I zoomed in on the image, I could see that it was a mallard duck. I’ll look at the completed mural when I go to that park again.

We took our walk under the trees and sat in the gazebo. From there, we can see the town water tower.
