We went there after Nicholas's Sunday Chinese class for a late picnic lunch in the shelter by the Oak Point Pond and then went on biking to enjoy the beautiful breezy spring day. The pond was full, the bank was green. In fact everywhere we looked at it was green. It was so soothing to the eyes.
Lily and Nicholas rushed out to try to finish the long bike trail to South Woodruff Park and back in 40 minutes. I did not chase them, but rode at my own pace to enjoy what the rainy spring brought. There were patches of flowers here and there, not as wide spread as I wished, but nevertheless very pleasing. Water was running in the Rowlett Creek by the bike trail, but Egrets, which we saw last couple of times we visited the park, were no where to be seen. Where are they? Not the season for them to be there?
Despite high humidity, the breeze made it a good day for out and about. There were quite a few people fishing at the Oak Point Pond. A few people like us biking, a few more jogging along the trail. There were lot of people at Woodruff Park as always.

On the way to the parking lot, I stopped at Oak Point Prairie for a few more minutes, to enjoy the expanded green prairie. What a beautiful Spring day it was!
