Pretty Clouds at Sunset and More Rain in the Forecast

No, it’s not my imagination – we’ve had record amounts of rain here in the Pacific Northwest. Seems like I say that every year. But according to the Seattle Times, “With 18.91 inches of rain recorded at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport between Sept. 1 and… Continue Reading “Pretty Clouds at Sunset and More Rain in the Forecast”

Now that the rainy season is here in Seattle what can you do?  You can either lament the weather and hunker down inside for the next six months. Or you can head over to MOHAI!   No it’s not some exotic island in the Pacific;… Continue Reading “What to do on a Rainy Day in Seattle? MOHAI!”

Can’t Get Enough of the Waterfalls on the Historic Columbia River Highway

We are nothing if not consistent. One year ago we visited the Columbia Gorge to celebrate my husband’s birthday – we just returned from the same place yesterday. And why not? The Gorge is a fantastic place to visit anytime of year, and it’s… Continue Reading “Can’t Get Enough of the Waterfalls on the Historic Columbia River Highway”

Cruising the West Coast to San Francisco – Rainy Day Armchair Travel

Two years ago we took a cruise from Seattle down the West Coast with no masks, no vaccines, and of course – no covid! Those were days of carefree travel and I can’t wait until they return!

Golden Gingko

I first discovered the Gingko Biloba tree a few years ago when I was walking on the Cedar River Trail. Since then I try to visit each fall to catch it in its golden finest. Today was the day! 🙂 ~ Susanne

We left Seattle after Labor Day and headed east on I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass where I never get tired of… Continue Reading “Half the Fun is Getting There! On the Road to Yellowstone”

Peak Fall Color at Coulon Park – Too Good Not to Share

My life has become very busy lately and I’m finding I have less time to blog. It’s okay – life calls. But in between two appointments today I managed to swing by Coulon Park and found the trees at their peak color. I hope… Continue Reading “Peak Fall Color at Coulon Park – Too Good Not to Share”

Fall Color at Stevens Pass and Tumwater Canyon

Earlier this week we took a little road trip to Wenatchee to celebrate our 39th Anniversary. Yes, it’s been a wonderful THIRTY-NINE YEARS, a funny number that begs to usher in FORTY! We went via Highway 2 to see some of the best fall… Continue Reading “Fall Color at Stevens Pass and Tumwater Canyon”

The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!

One of my favorite things about living in Renton is seeing the salmon return to the Cedar River each fall. After spending several years in the Pacific Ocean they return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn. Coho, Chinook and Sockeye… Continue Reading “The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!”
