Took advantage of a beautiful Sunday afternoon and went walking around Laguna Gloria and Mayfield Park. I never knew that Mayfield was there. We ran into by accident b/c LG was closing. I was so suprised by how beautiful it was. And of course the peacocks were cool too. Would recommend a trip out there on the next pretty day you have off.
