Springtime in Seattle

After bemoaning the weather for the past week, we finally got a reprieve from the rain.  The sky was mostly clear yesterday when I met a friend for lunch at Alki Beach.  Some young ones played in the waves.  Not us. Along with our…

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…

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…

Rainy Days and Bridges

If you had reason to cross the Tacoma Narrows Bridge on a dreary, rainy Monday as we did today, this would be your view. I decided to make it into something more sunny and cheerful. Fortunately these bridges didn’t let us down despite the…

Benji’s Rainy Day Blues

“Hey Benji,” I said.  “How about some fresh air?  Here, I’ll hold the door for you!” The boy was wound up tight as a spring, bouncing off the walls and terrorizing his big brother.  It was time for a break. He hesitated. “Are you…

It’s a typical fall day in the Pacific Northwest, with gray skies, steady rain and two cats unable to decide whether to be in or out. Benji strikes a handsome pose through the screened picture window, apparently waiting patiently. Tiger has chosen a different…

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…

A Walk in the Rain at Soos Creek Botanical Garden

Our first storm of the fall season was supposed to land today, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds up to forty miles an hour.   It still may.  But this morning I decided to brave what looked like ordinary rain and headed to Soos…

Football Magic

I suppose I should have been watching the game.  After all, that’s why we had ventured out on a cold and rainy afternoon. We had bundled up in rain gear, and as we pulled out of the driveway I texted this to my step-daughter,…

Alaska Cruise: Ketchikan

Well here it is already, my last post on our cruise to Alaska with our final stop at Ketchikan! Ketchikan is in fact, the first city you would normally encounter cruising north into Alaska’s Inside Passage.  Our itinerary however, took us to Juneau first,…

Let me in

Sue, Sue, let me in. It’s cold out here. Are you coming? She’s fooling with that camera again. ~ Tiger
