Gulls in Gray and White – at Coulon Park

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge, I thought of ‘seagulls’ and went to look for them yesterday at Coulon Park. It’s one of their favorite places – mine too – and it was a beautiful day for a walk. They were out in great… Continue Reading “Gulls in Gray and White – at Coulon Park”

Berries in Ice and Season’s Greetings!

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re encased in ice! Very pretty, but dangerous. I took these photos from my front porch this morning, and other than tending to the hummingbirds, I’m staying inside till it’s safe to go out.

Apologies to you american… Continue Reading “Birds of Coulon with a Shoutout to the Coot”

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”

First of Three Days

Yes, that is sunshine you see here in the Great Northwest! According to the local news, we are about to experience three rain free days in a row, for the first time since last September! To celebrate day one, I went for a walk… Continue Reading “First of Three Days”

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”
