Bob and Jay’s Walk

Jay, a friend and photographer, asked if we could walk together some time. In early March my Euro-American friend and I walked the Manito Park – Cannon Hill Park Loop. It was a mild between seasons sort of day. The duck pond at Manito Park was still frozen but very little snow. The Cannon Hill pond was not frozen but no new greenery was yet to be seen. The Japanese Garden was still closed for the winter. We saw many joggers, dog walkers, family groups, and bicyclists enjoying the day. Everyone was smiling and welcoming, but Bob was the only African American to be seen.

Do African Americans in Spokane walk? If so, where? I would like to take your walk and post the photographs here.

    The photographs are so relaxing and make life seem so much more pleasant! And it can be if we just let out the good in all of us! The one of viewing the pedestrians reminds me of postcards we used to see when I was a child, and places like America and Europe were but just another place for “those people”! I am thankful that today you are all a part of my life, and I can now say it is a photograph of my neighbors! God Bless the work of your hands Mr. Lloyd.

    It was a “dog walker” morning. Fine company with many photographic moments.

    Great stuff Bob. Keep walking.
