We also hung out at the Spring Lake Library, we had stacks of books on the table. Books about trees, wildflowers, Michigan history, insects, shrubs, pods, and more. While we were here there was lightning flashing outside the windows, and thunder booming. It was so dark it looked like night.
After a bit the sun came out so we found a park to explore. We have been to Rycenga Park before, it is in Spring Lake Township, Michigan. It has trails, a creek, ball fields, playground, and a disc golf course. We walked the trails, it was wet but not raining. Then we dove down to the creek to have a closer look.
Here is what we saw.
We saw lots of dandelions on the ball field. Not much for wildflowers but it felt good to be outside.
