Lake Wautauga, Centennial Park, Nashville, Tennessee. June 23, 2012.

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that Betsy and I celebrated our anniversary back in June by going to Nashville to visit some of our old haunts.  One of the places we visited was Centennial Park.  We had often walked around the lake in the park while we were dating and after we were first married, but it wasn’t until this year that I learned that the lake had a name — Lake Wautauga.

The path around the lake leads past a fountain and under some beautiful shade and willow trees.

I managed to catch Betsy hard at work with her camera under one of the willow trees.

She inspired me to try my luck at getting a picture through the willow branches.

    Good God! Ms. A has beaten me again.
    I love the old willow trees on the banks of creeks, rivers
    and waterways. The water birds love them also.
    I think there is something soothing and serene with willows.
    Maybe I am recalling that book which is still a kids favourite.
    “Wind in the Willows”???
    Your photos of Nashville just show what a lovely city it must be.
