It’s quiet and serene. You can walk and talk, or sit and talk. There are lots of things to look at during awkward moments like birds, squirrels and beetle bait logs. A dog might run by and distract you. There are lots of rocks and sticks and similar projectiles to hurl at the ground in frustration. And if you get abandoned, you can get the number nine bus. Good times.
