I checked the map again, and see that the trail I'm looking for is off of the path going to the left out of Raparian Park park.  I began down this path the last time, but didn't go too far, cause I was already tired from my long climb.  So this time I'm going farther, and hopefully find the trail-path off to --now it would be the right

I saw these rocks the last time, but didn't examine them for faces carefully
The one on the right is wearing a frown

No wonder I'm grumpy
How would you like to have graffitti plastered all over you
Ok, so maybe I did acquire an(other) eye

It all depends on the angle you look at me

My smile gets wider, right?

So where is that trail?  I come to the end of the path I'm on; it ends at a street, and a neighborhood.  Up the hill to the right there's houses.  I remember seeing a path off to the right a ways back, so I retrace my steps.  Back the path on the right --now on the left-- doesn't go anywhere.  Now I'm beginning to hear the sound of children --in  the park, so here I am again back at the park.  OK, going to have to check that map afgain when I get home

xxxxBack to the boardwalk
I know there's no path-trail while I'm on the boards, but maybe right where it ends


xxxxxxx
.....
xxxProbably could use a walker or bicyclist...but after a few minutes --no one
xxx

xxxHey, is that the trail I'm looking for??
It's not where I thought it was, according to the map.  But...
However, I'm not going to pursue it farther today
xxx
.......
xxxSo back across the boardwalk and back to the park-car

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx......My version of a selfie
