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… Continue Reading “March comes in on a Whisper”

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… Continue Reading “Seattle’s Seward Park, Rain or Shine”

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… Continue Reading “After the Storm”

And pass this flock of big birds on the banks of the river.. Until we… Continue Reading “Walking along the Cedar River”

It Happened at Seafair

*This post is dedicated to my husband Bob * It was a different time and a different town. There was a big airplane company but no technology.  The Smith Tower but no Space Needle. There were wrestling matches and roller derby and stock car… Continue Reading “It Happened at Seafair”

Just a walk in the park….

The morning started out a bit overcast but held the promise of sun and so I ventured out to Gene Coulon Park to walk along the southern shores of Lake Washington.  A paved pedestrian trail where bikes and dogs are not allowed make it… Continue Reading “Just a walk in the park….”
