Great advice.... I live in Sorrento East and back up to Oscar Sherrer and never remember the beauty that is in my backyard!

May have to drag my Father-in-Law and son to the park this weekend (ones a boy scout and the other is a boy scout leader, so they both love to get lost in the woods...)

Hope to see you there!  I will be the good looking bald guy wearing WAY TOO MUCH sunscreen!!!

Kwee - You just made me realize something.  I thought Father's Day was last Sunday.  That explains why a couple men in my family looked at me funny when I gave them little gifts last weekend:-)
