I used to have lunch at a little park where I could enjoy the views of the waterfalls. My office had no windows where I worked and to get out in the air at noon was literally a breath of fresh air. We had two breaks besides a lunch break and we used to go for a walk on the breaks.
It was pretty in the Spring time with the blossoms on the fruit trees and there were landscaped flowers.
I used to look forward to going there for a picnic lunch in good weather. There was a nice landscaped lawn and brick path along with a couple of benches.
I think that it was my way of coping with a stressful job that demanded all my energy. It was like an escape from a pressure cooker and some of the stress was relieved. Being a person that was not naturally outgoing and being pushed into having to be a person that I was not was so challenging to me that without the 15 minute lunch break after the 5 minutes to get there and the 5 minutes to get back to work, I would just not have been able to cope as long as I did.
Every time I go by that place, I smile.
