Temps in the mid 90's, sunny, a little humid and a steady wind.
Fitness hike with a friend. Parts of the trails are still overgrown but they are passable. Saw a Painted Bunting for the first time on the Playground Trail just below Bell's Point. This year I've seen more Painted Buntings at more locations in this park, than any time in the past. (photo attached)

Water and shade available at Bell's Point.
