Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon

I love to walk at Coulon Park and no matter the season, I’m always joined by the stony walkers. Here they are on a sunny day, without a stitch on, but here they dressed for Valentine’s Day. Here they are on Memorial Day, and… Continue Reading “Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon”

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

A Rainy Last Day of Fall, Two Cats and Clam Lights!

After a mostly dry fall in the Pacific NW it seems that all the pent up rain has finally been loosed in a fury making today the rainiest Dec 20th on record, with many more like it to come.  How quickly we forget! Benji… Continue Reading “A Rainy Last Day of Fall, Two Cats and Clam Lights!”

Maiden Voyage of Our E Bikes on the Cedar River Trail

It’s been a cold and rainy fall but we managed to find a good day to take our new E Bikes out for their maiden voyage. We started at Cedar River Park and followed the Cedar River Trail south through the woods where the… Continue Reading “Maiden Voyage of Our E Bikes on the Cedar River Trail”

Salmon Mosaics and the Sockeye of the Cedar River

The salmon have returned to spawn on the Cedar River, primarily Chinook, Coho and Sockeye. Their journey was not a simple one.  Having left the Pacific Ocean, they entered Puget Sound, made their way through the Ballard Locks,  into the fresh water of Lake… Continue Reading “Salmon Mosaics and the Sockeye of the Cedar River”
