Flower with raindrops

A walk in the park (& styrofoam)

So I'm walking thru Colt State Park along the water... part of my attempt to get out and be active a little more... And as I'm walking back to the truck I came upon a little girl on the path (her family was at a picnic table not far away). The girl had a piece of styrofoam and was spinning it around in her hands causing the little tiny balls of styrofoam to break loose and fly off in the wind. She was immensely pleased by this and would spin the block around and watch as the bits would fly away. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Part of me thought of saying something to her about how that's not good for the environment, but then I thought better of that, since obviously her parents gave her that to play with and who knows what they would think of a stranger giving her the what-for. (Not that I would have been ugly or anything.)
