WP Prompt: Solitude

coney island 1

Snow on the beach at Coney Island in Brooklyn taken on a snowy day…

Taken in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. This is under a canopy of well entwined trees, across from the Japanese Garden.  With limbs low enough to perch on with legs swinging while letting the imagination roam, it’s a child’s dream. Adults too! But, of course you can’t,  it is forbidden. One can only dream:)
