Just a walk in the park….

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…DSC00051

The hydrangeas were in full, glorious dress….DSC00076and this silent stream was a study in green..

  1. Beautiful country, and I remember it well–we moved east of the Cascade from the South Sound about six years ago. We made frequent visits to the beautiful locations you feature here. I sometimes marvel that I’m not homesick, but we had to go east to feel like we were in the West. . . .

    • thanks for reading! 🙂 I sometimes wonder whether I could live anywhere else. I am so used to green and blue and mountains and water… but then again, I think there is beauty to be found anywhere if you look for it….

    • Not the best place for Ollie…dogs are allowed in the park, just not on the paved path.. I’m not sure why… it’s pretty unusual for here .. but it does keep it quiet and the foot traffic down..
