Third Beach at Olympic National Park, but What’s in a Name?

On our recent trip to Olympic National Park, we enjoyed a wonderful hike to Third Beach – and no,  the name does not do it justice.  Just a short drive from Mora Campground, Third Beach lies south of First Beach and Second Beach – …

A Summer Walk in the Park

There’s nothing like summer in the Pacific Northwest and what better way to enjoy it than with a walk at Coulon Park on the shores of Lake Washington? Where sky and lake meet in perfect shades of blue and sailboats await the call. Where…

Scenes from Lake Wilderness

Don’t you wish you could walk down this road? Or rest by this lake? Or dream by this stream? We did.  At Lake Wilderness in Maple Valley. It was oh so green and peaceful. ~ Susanne

A Library – and a River Runs through it

I visited the Library in Renton and this boy greeted me near the door. As did this river – the Cedar. Inside I made a few selections. Then went outside to walk the trail,  capturing these shots of the Library. Because yes indeed.  A…

A Drive to Washington Park Arboretum

Sometimes there’s a drive and sometimes there’s a destination and sometimes you’re lucky to enjoy both as I did yesterday.  My destination was the Washington Park Arboretum and  I took the scenic route to get there,  Lake Washington Boulevard. Lake Washington Boulevard Lake Washington…

Lines, Lines Everywhere!

I headed to the park today on the hottest day of the year with lines on my mind.  Turns out they were everywhere. Thick as trees in the forest, mostly upright, side by side,  and crossing over. Lifeless as logs scattered about the beach….

Two Years with Cats and Trails and Garden Tales

I was wondering how to mark the two year anniversary of Cats and Trails and Garden Tales, but I was feeling tongue-tied until this boy showed up to help. ‘Just do what you’ve been doing,’  he said.   Okay, I thought,  I’ll share a…

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…

Springtime at Seward Park

Since rediscovering Seattle’s Seward Park last year, it has become one of our favorite places to walk.  Less than 30 minutes from our house, this beautiful park on Lake Washington has beaches, old growth forest, hiking trails, picnic areas, and scenic views of Seattle….

A Visit to Point Defiance on a March Summer Day

We looked for someplace new to enjoy the warmest day of the year to date – temperatures in the mid 70’s and it’s still winter!  We didn’t have to look far;  Point Defiance Park just 30 miles south in Tacoma, fit the bill. At…

Discovering Chambers Bay

Chambers Bay brings to mind the US Open Golf Tournament – at least to us locally – which was played there in 2015.  I’m not much of a golfer but my husband is so we watched the TV coverage of the event.  I remember…
