It was one of those rare days here in Pennsylvania during January where the sun was shining and the weather was so nice, my son and I had about an hour or so to be outside. We headed to our favorite local park, Tyler State Park, which consists of 1,711 acres in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 33 miles from Philadelphia. More importantly, it is about 10 minutes from our house.
Tyler State Park has many different areas within it. There are several hiking trails within the park and also paved paths for those who want to walk/run, etc. There is a playground, several sports fields and random open fields. Typically we see deer, foxes and many little critters. There is also a frisbee golf course in the park. Neshaminy Creek runs through it, as well. Instead of going to the spot we usually go, we decided to take one of the paved walking trails. Of course, my 8-year-old son decided that he wanted to go off the path, as he usually does. There I was following him down a steep hill and over a tree that was laid down across the creek. We found large pieces of bark that he found interesting and a vine I showed him he could use as a swing. I found the perfect walking stick, which my son immediately thought was perfect for him!
There were a ton of people walking and running through the park. It was a great day to be out and about. We ran into a friend of my son’s as well. What amazed me was the number of people playing disc golf. I didn’t know it was so popular. There were groups of five to 10 and some single people playing. There were people who had special backpacks with 20-plus different frisbees they were using. Here I was thinking the next time we would go I should bring one or two. Silly me.

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
