Sunday in the Park Pholo EsSay by Ferrell Friend One of the bonuses of being a West Virginian is that somewhere near there is a secluded glen, a tranquil park, a bubbling stream, or a cathedral aisle through the forest. These are places of peace, refuges from the turmoil of daily living, the clatter and din of living in a city. You need no plan, no program for such an outing. You can take a pole and dangle a hook in the water. You can pack a light lunch or a belt-shrinking meal. Or you can go and just sit, or stretch out in the autumnal sun. Whatever you do. you will return refreshed. These photos were taken at Audra State Park in Upshur County. At left. Richard Noel, his wife and son, who used to live in Seattle, Washington, but now live in Bridgeport, Harrison County, relax on a footbridge over the Middle Fork River. At lower left, a group of youngsters and park supervisor Gary L. Wade hold a question and answer session. Below, Susie poses to show you what is meant by "living a dog's life,"and in the photo beside her Mr. Mrs. Roy Kerns and their sons Gary and Jeff, bask on a boulder beside the stream. In the two photos at the right, three ladies relax around a make-shift play pen, and a group of fishermen try their luck in a deep, still pool. What else is needed for a perfect Sunday?
