The morning started out a bit overcast but held the promise of sun and so I ventured out to Gene Coulon Park to walk along the southern shores of Lake Washington. A paved pedestrian trail where bikes and dogs are not allowed make it an easy walk for people of all ages, including me. No need to hurry as there is something wonderful to see around every bend and in every color, in shades of green and blue and purple and gray…
The hydrangeas were in glorious dress….
and this silent stream was a study in green..
There was the lone turtle soaking up the sun’s rays….
and the blue heron standing tall against the skyscrapers of Seattle..
And if you could only see through the clouds you would find the Olympics to the west standing guard, as I did one crisp, clear day last winter…
Along with this shy, local beauty.
