Monday Memories: Strolls Around Saratoga

Exactly two years ago today, that was when I was spending my final days in San Mateo before I was going to fly back to Manila. Needless to say, I miss the place.

Artificial stream. This is the view I remember most in the Saratoga area.

On afternoons when we got back after work I used to go out and took strolls around Saratoga Square. It's a lovely place. There's a wide park with playgrounds and there's even a pool. The houses are lovely and I felt like I was in relative safety. I simply love the neighborhood overall.

Simple rules to help folks stay out of trouble.

Pick up after your pooch!

I would've wanted to play here but I didn't want folks calling the Park Management nor the cops on me.

Overall, a beautiful place! Just look at that sky and the nicely made houses.

These arch things are a nice touch.

Here's another view of the artificial stream.

If I face the opposite direction from the image above, this is what I'd see.

Extra wide stepping stones are a nice touch.

Tired from all that walking? You can sit here.

Frog statues. Personally I'd rather see a Squirtle.

Up close I don't find them cute.

There's also this. Not cute either.

Big brother watching me.

By nightfall, the grounds become empty.

Maybe it's just me, but I find empty swings unsettling.

Empty slides feel kinda lonely too.

The rest of the images can be viewed here:

Until then, let's get lost and wander! :)
