Last week we enjoyed the great outdoors on our trip to Oregon where we found giant bubbles at Seaside,
took a cool walk at Cannon Beach
and visited Herman the Sturgeon at the Bonneville Fishery. Herman is over 10 feet long and 80 years old in case you wondered.
We returned from our trip just in time for the heat wave – today is the third day in triple digits, absolutely unheard of in Western Washington.
It was 104 in Renton yesterday and we’re expecting a high of 111 today; the average temperature for June is 71!
Still I was up early and went for a walk at my favorite local park before the weather became intolerable. Gene Coulon Memorial Park has the best walking trail on the southern shore of Lake Washington as well as a swimming beach, boating, fishing and eateries.
The turtles call it home too.
It was a cool 84 when I left the house and 90 when I returned. As I type this it’s noon and already 102. Not much relief in sight though we’ll hopefully leave the 100’s behind tomorrow.
