The Rain, the Park and Other Things

I’m borrowing the title for this post because it fits and if you don’t know it’s a song that’s okay too –  I guess I’m showing my age. It’s been a rainy week in the Great Northwest but what else can you expect in…

Blue and Gray and Cloudy Day

Earlier this week I found a break in the rain and got my walk in at Coulon Park where the clouds were awesome. So were the Olympics wearing both snow and clouds so it was hard to tell which was which. When I returned…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Drive

I was disappointed when Word Press stopped the Daily Post Prompts and Weekly Challenges as they used to help fuel my posts.   When my own inspiration ran dry, I could often rise up to a prompt or challenge.  Fortunately other bloggers have picked…

Annual Coulon Color

I couldn’t resist dropping by Gene Coulon Park today to see the trees transformed into their fall glory. It never gets old. ~ Susanne

Walking into Fall at Coulon Park

September has been slow to relinquish summer and that’s fine with me.  I’m enjoying the lingering sun and slow transformation of the leaves even as the days grow shorter. A slow walk into Fall at Coulon Park. ~ Susanne

Sunset at Coulon

We decided to go for a walk at Coulon Park last night just as the sun was beginning to set.   The crowds from Labor Day weekend were mostly gone – the picnickers and swimmers soaking up the last of summer –  leaving the…

A Summer Walk in the Park

There’s nothing like summer in the Pacific Northwest and what better way to enjoy it than with a walk at Coulon Park on the shores of Lake Washington? Where sky and lake meet in perfect shades of blue and sailboats await the call. Where…

More Turtles of Coulon

The weather was nicer this week than expected so I headed to Coulon Park to walk the trail along the shores of Lake Washington. I wasn’t the only one out. It was a real log jam. ~ Susanne

Two Years with Cats and Trails and Garden Tales

I was wondering how to mark the two year anniversary of Cats and Trails and Garden Tales, but I was feeling tongue-tied until this boy showed up to help. ‘Just do what you’ve been doing,’  he said.   Okay, I thought,  I’ll share a…

Winter Walk at Coulon Park

It hardly seems fair to call it a winter day, not with temperatures in the 50’s and the sky as blue as the lake below. And though the calendar does indeed say it’s winter I put on my lighter jacket and we headed to…

The Rain the Park and Umbrellas

If you’re going to live in the Great Northwest and enjoy life at all during the long and rainy winter months, you’re going to want to invest in a good umbrella.  You will likely have the small travel versions stashed here and there about…

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…
