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”

Rainy Day Cats

It’s a typical fall day in the Pacific Northwest, with gray skies, steady rain and two cats unable to decide whether to be in or out. Benji strikes a handsome pose through the screened picture window, apparently waiting patiently. Tiger has chosen a different… Continue Reading “Rainy Day Cats”

After the Storm

We heard the wind howling in the night but woke to overcast skies and promising sunbreaks.  We thought we could beat the storm’s next wave and so headed out to Coulon Park for a morning walk.  We found everything windswept, clean and fresh, and… Continue Reading “After the Storm”

A Walk on the Cedar River Trail

What a difference a day makes!  This morning brought brief snow flurries to the region (the earliest I can remember) but yesterday was mild with only light rain. I’m happy we took our walk on the Cedar River Trail yesterday. The Trail follows the… Continue Reading “A Walk on the Cedar River Trail”

Road Trip to Leavenworth

Nolte State Park in Color

There’s never a bad time to visit Nolte State Park.  We’ve made the drive south many times to get away from the city, breathe in fresh air and walk the trail through the forest around lovely Deep Lake. We were there in January when the… Continue Reading “Nolte State Park in Color”

A Walk in the Rain at Soos Creek Botanical Garden

Our first storm of the fall season was supposed to land today, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds up to forty miles an hour.   It still may.  But this morning I decided to brave what looked like ordinary rain and headed to Soos… Continue Reading “A Walk in the Rain at Soos Creek Botanical Garden”

Colors of Coulon

I finally made it to Gene Coulon Park today to see the display of fall color under sunshine and clear skies. Just in time. Rain and wind forecasted for the rest of the week. ~ Susanne

Football Magic

I suppose I should have been watching the game.  After all, that’s why we had ventured out on a cold and rainy afternoon. We had bundled up in rain gear, and as we pulled out of the driveway I texted this to my step-daughter,… Continue Reading “Football Magic”

They’re Back

After an interminably long and dry summer the rain and clouds have returned to the Pacific Northwest just in time to welcome fall. Though we desperately needed the rain, the change was rather abrupt and will take some getting used to.  Still, I love… Continue Reading “They’re Back”
