It hardly seems fair to call it a winter day, not with temperatures in the 50’s and the sky as blue as the lake below. And though the calendar does indeed say it’s winter I put on my lighter jacket and we headed to one of our favorite walks at nearby Gene Coulon Park in Renton. With fresh air, sunshine, paved trail, lake and mountain views, there’s always something new to see. Today it was men in orange suits engaged in a training exercise; not a bad day’s work I would say.
Further on I stopped to enjoy the happy sailboats all lined up and buttoned down, waiting patiently for someone to take them out.
Mt. Rainier made an appearance in the south, which was much appreciated.
And this stream harbored birdsong sounding like a reed – what bird is that? – as it flowed into the lake.
Happy for another sunny winter walk.
