A Riot of Color in Orange and Green

It comes on slowly – then all in a hurry – this was the view at Coulon Park the end of September. Last week was a swirl of orange and green – like sherbet I thought – and photographers were out to see it.… Continue Reading “A Riot of Color in Orange and Green”

That’s Ochre!

The first time I heard the word ‘ochre’ I was playing scrabble with my mother. When she placed the tiles on the board I laughed and she said, ‘it’s a real word – a color – look it up.’ I was doubtful but gave… Continue Reading “That’s Ochre!”

Happy Together from the Turtles of Coulon

Did you get the title? If not, you’re too young and that’s okay too! You can tell me in the comments. 😉 Yesterday on the first day of fall in between days of rain which is our new normal, we had a wonderful sunshiny… Continue Reading “Happy Together from the Turtles of Coulon”

Cloudy Skies and The Summer that Wasn’t

While the rest of the country is burning up, here in the Pacific Northwest we continue to have cool temperatures. And wind. And rain. And always cloudy skies. Perhaps we’ll have no summer at all. Earlier this week I walked along the Cedar River… Continue Reading “Cloudy Skies and The Summer that Wasn’t”

A Monday Walk and Pandemic Visit

On the first Monday of summer under the bluest skies and warmest sunshine I went to visit my mom – pandemic style. I pulled up under her apartment window, and gave her a ring, ‘hey mom, I’m down here to visit,’ and visit we… Continue Reading “A Monday Walk and Pandemic Visit”

After two months of being closed, I was thrilled when Gene Coulon Memorial Park opened last week, allowing us to resume our walks on the shores of Lake Washington.  Always popular but not overcrowded it’s a perfect place to walk anytime of year, with… Continue Reading “Back for a Walk at Coulon Park”

Rainbow Cheer

Rain, rain, rain all week long but today I caught a little sunbreak and saw the hint of a rainbow over Lake Washington. I managed a short walk at Coulon Park while the rainbow played hide and seek with the clouds and sunshine until… Continue Reading “Rainbow Cheer”

The Unexpected Joy of Getting Outside

It’s true isn’t?  There’s nothing like getting outside to give you a fresh perspective and yes, even fill you with joy!  We chose to do just that before the next snow was expected to arrive, walking the lakeshore trail at Coulon Park, where there… Continue Reading “The Unexpected Joy of Getting Outside”

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!”
