For The Sake Of The Lake

The return of Echo Park Lake to the people this past weekend after an almost two-year closure for renovation, was both a highly anticipated event for those in the surrounding communities, and big enough to warrant coverage by a lot of the local media outlets.

Me? I stayed the heck away on Saturday, opting instead to visit on the far less-hectic day after, with the crowds far less madding and the number of pontificating politicians reduced to zero.

What a beautiful old new place it is. An absolute jewel. My favorite sight? This specimen (click it for the bigger picture):

It did my heart good to see the lotuses once again thriving in the north lagoon.
