Peak Fall Color at Coulon Park – Too Good Not to Share

My life has become very busy lately and I’m finding I have less time to blog. It’s okay – life calls. But in between two appointments today I managed to swing by Coulon Park and found the trees at their peak color. I hope… Continue Reading “Peak Fall Color at Coulon Park – Too Good Not to Share”

On a Ferry from Bremerton – the Ride’s the Thing

While it’s true that Washington State Ferries – the largest ferry system in the USA – provide much needed transportation on Puget Sound – sometimes the ride’s the thing. We drove to Bremerton over the weekend to look at a camper (don’t laugh but… Continue Reading “On a Ferry from Bremerton – the Ride’s the Thing”

I’m Singing and Hiking in the Rain!

After 51 days straight without any measurable precipitation we finally had rain in Seattle, and I said bring it on! To celebrate this first rainy day of summer we went for a hike in the woods at Kanaskat-Palmer State Park, with a smile on… Continue Reading “I’m Singing and Hiking in the Rain!”

It started with a fury overnight – tiny flakes of ice blown sideways. It’s falling still – larger and softer – more gently but determined – blanketing everything in white. The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived”

Blue Skies and Eagles before the Snow

Snow is in the forecast – promises promises. It only arrives when it’s unexpected. When I worked downtown this was always the case. The snow would begin to fall in the afternoon leaving the city surprised. We left work early and roads would be… Continue Reading “Blue Skies and Eagles before the Snow”

Up in a Redwood Tree

Earlier this month on a very rainy day we went to Lincoln Park for a walk. We took the trail up to the top of the bluff and found shelter in a grove of Redwood trees. So did this little fella. Shared with Becky’s… Continue Reading “Up in a Redwood Tree”

Only the Best Clouds in Seattle

Did you know that Seattle is the cloudiest city in the country? Not the rainiest city no, but often ranked #1 for days with heavy cloud cover. Suffice it to say, I’ve seen a lot of cloudy days in my life. And many of… Continue Reading “Only the Best Clouds in Seattle”
