Every visit to Coulon Park is wonderful but there is always something new!
Today’s weather was perfect for walking and the brilliant blue skies were reflected in the waters of Lake Washington.
Sailboats were lined up as usual and ready to go.
Turtles were basking in the sun – the little one’s feet stretched out to absorb as much of the warm rays as possible.
The birds and ducks were happily swimming, and soaring, and fishing. Like this Great Blue Heron who stood as still as a statue on the piling.
Patiently looking for lunch.
As were we.
We stopped by Ivar’s and shared our fish and chips in the open air, enjoying the sights around us.
And then an Eagle soared overhead.
We watched as he approached – dove headfirst into the lake –
and returned with the spoils.
And then a flyby for the Heron, as if to show him how it’s done.
The Heron left shortly after.
So did we.
