Waited till mid morning to take Loca to the park and the day is absolutely stunning. The little bit of fall color that goes on display here is best seen inside the park along the lagoon. I love to watch the coots chuking along the water, and the Great Egret, the immature Cormorants sitting up in the tree, the lonely rail, the moorhens, the mallards all seem to have found paradise, just like me. The moss seems fatter hanging from the trees and the sunlight has the horizontal quality that makes dense cypress stands seem darker and more imposing.
Turning at the end of the path on the Marconi side an artist is creating a threshold to nowhere out of mosaics. In front of the museum is a FEMA trailer that has been converted by an artist into an Emergency Response Studio fully equipped for displaced artists, there are also two sets of pristine white stairs to nowhere in the meadow, and steel letters that spell DESIRE are still perched on top of NOMA looking imposing and impressive.
