Been trying to post some Youtube videos of some local parks but Blogger keeps saying the links are invalid so I will have to post them individually:
There are 2 parks we've been meaning to go to - both are fairly close to us. However, after seeing the videos online, and being as my mom is wearing a boot on her foot up to her knee, it makes for very limited movement / walking for her, so we've decided to postpone going.
The first one is called Picnic Point Park - very interesting place to watch the trains go by on the overhead crossing:

http://youtu.be/si_AWcY8Xwc - Interesting perspective of train going by - a little too close!
The next one is called Meadowdale Park - this one also has an overhead crossing of the train and is 1.25 miles to walk from the parking lot to the beach. It does have a lot of tide-pools when the tide is out apparently:
http://youtu.be/gtdgM-SuXNc - Seen at low tide with a coal train going by.
http://youtu.be/LWeKSVXNdGk - Another train video if memory serves me right - I haven't watched this one.
Hope to get out to take some more pictures tomorrow and relax. We all need it!
