A Look back at the First Moon Landing

I was at the neighbor’s house babysitting and the kids were already in bed.  Walter Cronkite was on television misty-eyed,  pondering whether we’d ever view the moon in quite the same way, now that Neil Armstrong had stepped onto its ghostly surface.  I watched… Continue Reading “A Look back at the First Moon Landing”

Over Seattle and Under California

Summer is the time to travel and if you have to fly there’s nothing like Seattle from the air, where on a clear day you can see forever –  at least across Puget Sound to the Olympics. And if you’re lucky you’ll have close-up… Continue Reading “Over Seattle and Under California”

A Competition Between the Blue Heron and the Bald Eagle – at Coulon Park

Every visit to Coulon Park is wonderful but there is always something new! Today’s weather was perfect for walking and the brilliant blue skies were reflected in the waters of Lake Washington. Sailboats were lined up as usual and ready to go. Turtles were… Continue Reading “A Competition Between the Blue Heron and the Bald Eagle – at Coulon Park”

Memories in Bremerton and a Ferry Ride to Seattle

We were looking for a way to spend a sunny spring day and settled on a drive to Bremerton, where we’d visit the Navy Museum and take the ferry back to Seattle. The day would trigger long forgotten memories that I will share with… Continue Reading “Memories in Bremerton and a Ferry Ride to Seattle”

A Walk through Seattle’s Chinatown

Okay so maybe it’s not San Francisco but it’s authentic and it’s ours and it’s still the best place for real Chinese food in Seattle.  When you work downtown you’ll likely make the walk there for somebody’s birthday lunch;  or like I did recently,… Continue Reading “A Walk through Seattle’s Chinatown”

Memories at Snoqualmie Falls

The day before the snow arrived – it seems so long ago – we went to Snoqualmie Falls, one of our favorite local attractions.  The Falls are an easy drive from Seattle and a place to wow your out-of-town guests.  Or to celebrate a… Continue Reading “Memories at Snoqualmie Falls”

Hummingbirds in the Snow

Yesterday I went looking for ‘Red” for a photo challenge – I guess I could have waited and included these pictures from this morning too. As you probably know by now we are in the midst of Snowmageddon here in the Pacific Northwest with… Continue Reading “Hummingbirds in the Snow”

Cedar River Walk and Some History

Even though we’re in the middle of a Seattle Freeze I’ve been missing my walks so yesterday we set out for the Cedar River Trail. We were greeted by other walkers including these ducks who were led by their fearless leader apparently looking for… Continue Reading “Cedar River Walk and Some History”
