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…

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

A Drive to Washington Park Arboretum

Sometimes there’s a drive and sometimes there’s a destination and sometimes you’re lucky to enjoy both as I did yesterday.  My destination was the Washington Park Arboretum and  I took the scenic route to get there,  Lake Washington Boulevard. Lake Washington Boulevard Lake Washington…

Rainy Day Walk and the B-17

Rain, rain and more rain was the forecast for the week, along with wind and stormy weather for the weekend.  So we weren’t surprised to wake up to heavy,  pounding rain this morning.   Did we dare go out for our walk?  We headed…

Springtime at Seward Park

Since rediscovering Seattle’s Seward Park last year, it has become one of our favorite places to walk.  Less than 30 minutes from our house, this beautiful park on Lake Washington has beaches, old growth forest, hiking trails, picnic areas, and scenic views of Seattle….

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…

March comes in on a Whisper

There’s no lion today;  March has come to the Pacific Northwest with barely a whisper and blue skies.  We take advantage of the milder temperatures with a walk on the Cedar River Trail. We see bursts of color in the trees and shrubs… As…

Seattle’s Seward Park, Rain or Shine

Perhaps we should have waited for dry weather before visiting this beautiful Seattle Park but after a few stormy days we needed to get out of the house.  And so, armed with rain gear and resolve we headed out to the west side of…

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…

Sunsets Never Get Old

This happened tonight over Lake Washington during my birthday dinner.  Really. The Appetizer Main Course Dessert I couldn’t have scripted it any better. ~ Susanne

The Turtles of Coulon

Of all the things to be enjoyed at Coulon Park…. the boats and planes the docks and piers the elusive mountain I think the best may be the turtles. ~ Susanne
