Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon

I love to walk at Coulon Park and no matter the season, I’m always joined by the stony walkers. Here they are on a sunny day, without a stitch on, but here they dressed for Valentine’s Day. Here they are on Memorial Day, and… Continue Reading “Celebrating the Stony Walkers of Coulon”

The Odd Bird

It’s just an expression – like odd duck – odd ball – odd man out – but it seems to suit February, certainly an odd month! For starters, I can’t ever remember how many days it has! “Thirty days has September, April, June and… Continue Reading “The Odd Bird”

Birds of a Feather at Juanita Bay

After a break in the weather yesterday we visited Juanita Bay Park, a protected wildlife area on the shores of Lake Washington. We took the boardwalk and joined other birders who pointed out the bald eagles high in the evergreens above. (Yes, I had… Continue Reading “Birds of a Feather at Juanita Bay”

Scenes from a Snowy Coulon Walk

We were housebound for three days but when the roads became passable, we decided to go for a walk at Gene Coulon Park. We bundled up and trudged around the lake mostly alone. The stony walkers were dressed in their holiday finest and my… Continue Reading “Scenes from a Snowy Coulon Walk”

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”

Rain, Clouds, and Eagles

Saturday evening we took a walk at Coulon despite the threat of rain. I didn’t carry my camera – I’m always slowing my poor husband down on our walks – but I did have my phone. The clouds were spectacular and of course I… Continue Reading “Rain, Clouds, and Eagles”

Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park

In my last post I told you about the rain barrels in our backyard. To get the second one we went to Sand Point, an old naval base on the shores of Lake Washington, now mostly owned and used by the City of Seattle. … Continue Reading “Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park”

Great Blue Heron in Black and White

Earlier this week, as I stood on the shores of Lake Washington,  a Great Blue Heron swooped in and landed nearby.  It was a typical spring day in Seattle, skies cloudy and partly blue,  the lake a silvery hue. Though I didn’t shoot the… Continue Reading “Great Blue Heron in Black and White”

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”
