A perfect day begins with a trip to Starbucks and a walk at our favorite park on the shores of Lake Washington. We tried twice earlier this week to do just that but each time were turned back by the cold, wind, and rain. One time we made it to the park only to sit in the car and drink our coffee with this view.
What a difference a day makes! We woke today to a different reality: crisp, clear, and sunny with a temperature of 64 F in the forecast, the highest this year.
We head to Gene Coulon Park in Renton with drinks in hand and are rewarded with the bluest of blues and air fresh and washed clean.
We weren’t the only ones out. This mama duck and her babies were enjoying a swim together…
While this turtle basked in the sun alone.
These stony folks were committed as always to walking….
And the trees were blossoming and fragrant.
What a glorious day!
We are reminded again why we live in the Pacific Northwest.
