You may remember Woodlands Lake / train station from my previous post found here. These are a few more pictures from our visit there.
Above is the part of the abandoned train station which Woodlands was known for. Peeking through the windows, a lot of the original front-desk area can be seen, as well as a newer desk and a science magazine from the 1980s.
There is another smaller building to the right of the one above where the original departure/arrival schedule was displayed, which is now covered by a painted sheet of plywood.
Not too far away (down a short staircase) is a man-made waterfall as well as Woodlands Lake proper.
Happy Birthday, mom.
Unfortunately, I’m stuck at work, so I can only leave the card (which is taped to one of those super-sized Kit-kat bars) taped to the fridge on my way out.
Happy (early) Mothers Day, moms out there. Here are some flowers.
There’s a tiny park outside my job. Sometimes I like to sit there are be one with nature. It really helps me cope with the stress from my job.
I stopped near the University on my way to the train the other day. I had time and wanted to eat my lunch away from the crowds. There are a couple of benches here, so I figured it was as good a place as any.
I couldn’t resist taking a few shots while I was at it, since it was so beautiful out. There are still a few lingering cherry blossom trees around, surprisingly enough. Though soon all the trees will be green and we will have to wait another year for them.
In Grand Central, Target built a huge doll house. When my friend and I went yesterday, we had to stop to take a look.
A dear friend of mine passed last weekend from cancer.
Boo was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer about a month ago, when we took her to the vet for lethargy. They couldn’t give a positive outcome (they honestly didn’t expect her to last the weekend) but she surprised us all.
