Tingley Beach

Tingley Beach
is a series of 4 manmade ponds
for fishing, model boating, and paddle boating. The geese didn't seem to mind.
I bet this goose was wondering if I was going to feed him.


The first pond we walked by was for model boats.
I saw sailboats from the local model boat club
sailing with the geese.





The second pond was the children's fishing pond.
I found a really neat rock structure with a cool fountain!



The fountain fed into the pond.



I wanted to climb higher on the rocks,
but a few boys had the same idea,
so I stayed low.


Boy magnet!


I crossed a bridge on the south end of the children's fishing pond.



The third pond was for adults and families.




Tingley Beach has a building
where you can buy fishing gear and licenses,
food, souvenirs, and train tickets.



This is the Tingley Beach train station,
in between the Zoo and Botanical Gardens.



A dock houses the paddle boats in the summer.




...and right after this picture,
I fell face down onto the concrete.
It did not feel very good,
and I got a little chip on my nose!


Suddenly, I was not feeling very good,
and my adventure was stopped.



I asked if I could go home and we could fix the boo-boo
on my nose.
