Is that the exact same thing that I wrote above? Fine, I think that works here. I'm wearing thin these days on park writing, but it's worth noting that despite my fatigue, I am going to give it my all to finish this series with some gusto. But this park is not one that I am able to give any of that gusto too, as it happens. 

Enjoy the weekend!
