After two months of being closed, I was thrilled when Gene Coulon Memorial Park opened last week, allowing us to resume our walks on the shores of Lake Washington. Always popular but not overcrowded, it’s a perfect place to walk anytime of year, with or without protective gear.
Families were out and their children laughed and played and swam and fished, most with safe distances between.
The stony walkers were unable to practice social distancing – but at least managed gloves and mask.
Canada Geese had nothing to fear and grazed in the fresh grass.
Sparrows filled the air with their song,
adding to the beauty and color everywhere.
Boats were out
in all sizes and shapes, powered by sail, motor and oar.
The turtles of Coulon seemed happy to welcome us back to their park,
and for a time all seemed right with the world.
For Jo’s Monday Walk.
