Rickreall Creek flows right through our small town of Dallas, and only a couple of blocks from our residence in the Dallas Retirement Village. Along the creek's banks are several city parks and a creek side trail. We feel so fortunate to have this wonderful resource so close and available. Birds enjoy it too, and at this spot this morning Jeanette and I saw two Green Herons. This bubbling brook seems to drown out all the noise of national problems of race, disease and politics, and during the time we spend exploreing it's shady trails we breath easier. We are indeed fortunate beyond measure.
