    Some of my best memories are from walking around here, feeding the ducks

    Hello.

    What a pleasant day, Neil! I love this park. Some of my best memories are from walking around here, feeding the ducks…

    I would like to ask you a question about the sentence "Some of my best memories are from walking around here, feeding the ducks".

    Does "Some of my best memories are from walking around here, feeding the ducks" mean "Some of my memories that I cherish the most are those from walking around here, feeding the ducks" or "Some of my memories that I cherish the most are those of walking around here, feeding the ducks" or "Some of my memories that I cherish the most are those related to/connected with walking around here, feeding the ducks" or "I cherish the most some of my memories related to walking around here, feeding the ducks" or "Some of my best memories apply to/refer to walking around here, feeding the ducks"?

    Thank you.

    Do you see a difference in meaning in all those choices?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Then the answer to your question is "yes."

    Remember that as much as I like English, there is always a risk of making a mistake. After all, English is my second language.
