Lots of flowers, older mansion, racing museum. Some ducks and squirrels. Take your macro lens and tripod if you have them. Easy access for mobility carts.

    All of the pictures uploaded so far are exquisite. The photographers responsible for these pictures should be very proud of the art they have produced.

    What a warm and friendly group I found when I arrived for my first meetup with them. I enjoyed meeting everyone there and listening to the sharing and friendly suggestions. I had a wonderful time and look forward to the next time I can join you. Thank you so much for making this newbie feel a part of the group!

    There are 2 entrances to Hopeland.

    The main one is at 135 Dupree PL., just off Whiskey Rd.

    The other is at 100 Berrie Rd., on the southern edge of Hopeland and just off Whiskey Rd. A sign says, "Rye Patch", don't worry, this is Hopeland. This is a larger parking area, but not paved. I recommend we meetup in this one, tho the park is small and we will run into each other in any case. I think we would have plenty of parking in this area. Both have mobility cart access. Please observe the no parking signs near the big trees. They are protecting the tree roots.

    This would be a good place to try your extension tubes and tripod with cable release. If you have them.
