St Patrick’s Day Walkers

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the stony walkers at Coulon Park! ~ Susanne

Blue Skies and Eagles before the Snow

Snow is in the forecast – promises promises. It only arrives when it’s unexpected. When I worked downtown this was always the case. The snow would begin to fall in the afternoon leaving the city surprised. We left work early and roads would be… Continue Reading “Blue Skies and Eagles before the Snow”

A Week Like No Other

We’ve had relentless, pounding rain in the Pacific Northwest all week long but this morning broke like springtime. We went to Coulon Park for a walk and paused at the end of the lake for these views. Skyscrapers from the Seattle skyline can be… Continue Reading “A Week Like No Other”

The Sun Also Rises

We saw torrential downpours on the first day of winter here in the Pacific Northwest. Those further north enjoyed the first snow though none of it made it to the ground at my house. But yesterday dawned clear and cold and temperatures rose during… Continue Reading “The Sun Also Rises”

Colorful Coulon Walk and a Cloud

It was a crisp and clear, sunny day – perfect for a walk at Coulon Park. Trees bore leaves of red and gold and the Mountain was out but it was a cloud that caught my eye. It loomed large as I drove home… Continue Reading “Colorful Coulon Walk and a Cloud”

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”
