A New Day Has Dawned

A Week Like No Other

We’ve had relentless, pounding rain in the Pacific Northwest all week long but this morning broke like springtime. We went to Coulon Park for a walk and paused at the end of the lake for these views. Skyscrapers from the Seattle skyline can be… Continue Reading “A Week Like No Other”

Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back

We started 2020 in the Pacific Northwest lamenting the rain and planning an escape to where the sun always shines. For us that was Oahu and the timing in February was perfect – a month later would be too late. In early March we… Continue Reading “Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back”

The Sun Also Rises

So despite the rain we drove south to Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in… Continue Reading “Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, and a Blast from the Past at the Rose Garden”

A Strange New Fall and a Skinny Fair

It seems that by the time summer finally arrives in the Pacific Northwest it’s already on its way out. And while I always welcome fall, this year will hardly be typical. Back to school? Learning will start online, something not dreamed of when this… Continue Reading “A Strange New Fall and a Skinny Fair”

A Monday Walk and Pandemic Visit

On the first Monday of summer under the bluest skies and warmest sunshine I went to visit my mom – pandemic style. I pulled up under her apartment window, and gave her a ring, ‘hey mom, I’m down here to visit,’ and visit we… Continue Reading “A Monday Walk and Pandemic Visit”
