Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks

I pretty much have to. I’m from Seattle where rain – or the threat of rain – happens often, especially November through March. And while we only get an average of 38 inches a year – far less than many other U.S. cities –… Continue Reading “Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks”

Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air

During this strange Covid year we’ve had to be hypervigilant about the very air we breathe, wearing masks and distancing ourselves to avoid transmitting the insidious virus to each other. Thankfully we can breathe deeply in nature where no such prohibition exists. So come… Continue Reading “Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air”

Colorful Coulon Walk and a Cloud

It was a crisp and clear, sunny day – perfect for a walk at Coulon Park. Trees bore leaves of red and gold and the Mountain was out but it was a cloud that caught my eye. It loomed large as I drove home… Continue Reading “Colorful Coulon Walk and a Cloud”

Rewards of a Rainy Day Walk, Harbor Seals and a Rainbow!

So here we are – it’s fall in the Pacific Northwest and that means rain, rain, and more rain, perhaps for the next six months. Okay, not really, but it sometimes feels like that. And you can’t just stay home day after day even… Continue Reading “Rewards of a Rainy Day Walk, Harbor Seals and a Rainbow!”

A Whale Sighting and Talking Crow at Seattle’s Lincoln Park

Anytime you visit Lincoln Park is a special time and so it was yesterday. We went to the park so Bob could practice fishing for sea run cutthroat. I went along to walk the beachfront and take pictures. I’d just left him fishing when… Continue Reading “A Whale Sighting and Talking Crow at Seattle’s Lincoln Park”

Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park

In my last post I told you about the rain barrels in our backyard. To get the second one we went to Sand Point, an old naval base on the shores of Lake Washington, now mostly owned and used by the City of Seattle. … Continue Reading “Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park”

Back for a Walk at Coulon Park

After two months of being closed, I was thrilled when Gene Coulon Memorial Park opened last week, allowing us to resume our walks on the shores of Lake Washington.  Always popular but not overcrowded, it’s a perfect place to walk anytime of year, with… Continue Reading “Back for a Walk at Coulon Park”

A Walk through Paradise – in Waimea Valley!

Need to get away?  Come with me for a walk in Waimea Valley! Tucked away on Oahu’s North Shore, across from Waimea Bay, you’ll find Waimea Valley,  a valley deeply rooted in Hawaiian history,  and Oahu’s last intact ahupua’a, a traditional Hawaiian land parcel… Continue Reading “A Walk through Paradise – in Waimea Valley!”

Oahu! A Walk at Ala Moana Park and Waikiki

It’s always hard to return from vacation and it’s even harder to share your enjoyment without putting your reader to sleep. (Remember the neighbor’s slideshow of no interest to anyone but him?) So I’ll break our trip into chunks and dole them out over… Continue Reading “Oahu! A Walk at Ala Moana Park and Waikiki”

Rialto Beach Walk to Hole in the Wall

This week we visited Olympic National Park for what should have been four days of camping but ended up to be a simple overnight stay.  Bob came down with a bad cold and after a rough night we decided we’d head back home –… Continue Reading “Rialto Beach Walk to Hole in the Wall”
