Gray and Red in Seattle

I always thought Petula Clark had it right, “when you’re alone and life is making you lonely you can always go.. downtown!” I liked the song back in the sixties and even then as a kid I’d hop on a bus downtown for 20… Continue Reading “Gray and Red in Seattle”

Sunny and Blue at Seward Park

After a snowy weekend we enjoyed the crisp and cold but sunny weather yesterday;  a perfect time to bundle up and walk through Seattle’s Seward Park on Lake Washington.   We started out under brilliant blue skies, with this view of Mt. Rainier partially… Continue Reading “Sunny and Blue at Seward Park”

Spring Comes Early to the NW Flower and Garden Show

We interrupt this winter to bring you the Northwest Flower and Garden Show!  Yes, it’s February – time again to head to the Convention Center where spring is alive and its fragrance fills the air!  I did that yesterday and filled my senses with… Continue Reading “Spring Comes Early to the NW Flower and Garden Show”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seattle!

For this week’s photo challenge, I will be your tour guide to Seattle, my hometown and one of America’s most beautiful cities.  We’ll start with a picture I took from the deck of our cruise ship last fall, as we were about to depart… Continue Reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Seattle!”

Fall Walk around Green Lake

I was raised in West Seattle and rarely ventured into other parts of the City, save for the occasional trip downtown or jaunt to the Zoo.  And so I’d never been to Green Lake until we moved to the north end rather unexpectedly (at… Continue Reading “Fall Walk around Green Lake”

Frank B Cooper School Refrain

I’m not sure what I was looking for by returning.  It was years and years ago when I attended Frank B. Cooper school, kindergarten through 6th grade.  But it was the school’s 100th anniversary and the building, now the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, where… Continue Reading “Frank B Cooper School Refrain”

Seattle’s Seward Park, Rain or Shine

Perhaps we should have waited for dry weather before visiting this beautiful Seattle Park but after a few stormy days we needed to get out of the house.  And so, armed with rain gear and resolve we headed out to the west side of… Continue Reading “Seattle’s Seward Park, Rain or Shine”

WordCamp Seattle

Today’s post isn’t about my usual suspects.  It’s not about my cats (though Tiger’s picture is on the badge below.)  And it’s not about trails and travels in the Pacific Northwest (though I did take the light rail downtown to my destination.) No, this… Continue Reading “WordCamp Seattle”

A Visit to the Woodland Park Zoo

Today was perfect for a walk through Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo. While still summer weather, the kids are back in school, leaving most of the trails quiet and peaceful.  I’ve been coming to this zoo since I was a child, but this is not… Continue Reading “A Visit to the Woodland Park Zoo”

Red Sun Gray Ash

Today we woke up to hazy skies through which a red sun glowed.  Though eerily beautiful it is not normal and attests only to raging fires everywhere in the Northwest; ironically at the same time that flooding engulfs the Southeast. Other evidence of the… Continue Reading “Red Sun Gray Ash”
