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. And with that I’m signing… Continue Reading “Berries in Ice and Season’s Greetings!”

And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park

Yesterday I shared with you the hummingbirds in my backyard; today I’ll share the eagles – okay, the eagle – that I saw last week before the weather went south. It was one of those beautiful blue-sky days that we sometimes get in Seattle… Continue Reading “And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park”

I’ll be taking a few days off from the blog, but will leave you with this tale of Turkey Day from long ago. And yes,, some of you may remember it. 😊 When I was growing up my favorite part of Thanksgiving wasn’t the… Continue Reading “Happy Turkey Day!”

‘Tis the Season for Hummers

November has come on strong and stormy as it often does in the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps that’s why I’m seeing more hummingbirds at the feeders; it’s easier for them to get their food fast and ready to go without fighting against the wind and… Continue Reading “‘Tis the Season for Hummers”

Home Again, Home Again to Smokey Skies and Fall Color

I woke to these views earlier this week – and returned to smokey skies and the worst air quality in the world. Yikes! Still, there was beautiful fall color to be found at Coulon Park in Renton before the storm hit. After the driest… Continue Reading “Home Again, Home Again to Smokey Skies and Fall Color”

A Fall Hike at Seattle’s Lincoln Park, Complete with Wildlife

Last week we took our first fall hike at Seattle’s Lincoln Park on a gloriously sunny day. We walked through the woods, and down to the beach on Puget Sound. We saw crows squirrels harbor seals caterpillars spider webs and the spiders who inhabit… Continue Reading “A Fall Hike at Seattle’s Lincoln Park, Complete with Wildlife”

September Kismet and School Daze

September is my favorite month, the blending of summer and fall, a time of beginnings and endings. It reminds me of those early days of grade school – seven years to be exact – spent at Frank B. Cooper School. The building is still… Continue Reading “September Kismet and School Daze”
