If Ever There Was A Day . . .

Today Was The Day For A Walk

sunny trail in City of Bellevue

It was a stunner! The sun was out in full force and warmed our part of the planet enough to leave my hat and gloves at home. At one point I almost felt too warm. It was glorious. So much so I couldn’t resist stepping onto the trail.

City of Bellevue trail bollardWooded trails make for my favorite walks and today’s stroll through Wilburton Park did not disappoint.

rays of sun on Wilburton trailI was sorry I didn’t bring my camera (again) but then I remembered my new phone has one in it so I whipped it out of my back pocket, because I’m kinda cool that way, and played with it and the rays of sunshine.

I don’t know what that purple arch is but I like it.

Stepping into the woods displayed contrasts of light and dark.

winter woods of Wilburton ParkStill a lot of brown to behold, but the birds were zipping around and singing loudly.

Hope you got outside and enjoyed the day.

If you didn’t there’s always Sunday, February 17th . . . At 2:00 PM in the parking lot of Kelsey Creek Farm. Beginning this month I’m leading a regular Group Walk on the third Sunday of every month ~ beginning February 17th.

Please join me.


Walk On my friends.
Walk On!

Yesterday was glorious throughout the Seattle area. The view from where I work In lower Queen Anne was fabuloius. A short walk on the new bridge crossing Elliiott Ave West, afforded a spectacular view of Elliott Bay. Mount Rainier was out in all her glory. The water sparkled as the ferries pushed through the water with West Seattle in the backround and the snow capped Olympics looked oh so close. It these spring like days with temps in the 50’s that remind me why I love living in the PNW.

By the way, your photos from your camera phone are great, and thanks for sharing.

Thank you Julie, my new iphone does a great job with photos, and with organizing my life. Now I know why people like their smart phones so much, and don’t understand what took me so long.

So glad you got outside yesterday to enjoy the views from Queen Anne and vicinity. I agree it is days like yesterday that make living here so wonderful. And because they’re few in number, it’s important to get out and enjoy them when we can–especially if it’s on a lunch break.

Hope you can join us tomorrow for a Group Walk. We’re meeting at Kelsey Creek Farm at 2:00 PM. I’m thinking the suspension bridge at Bellevue Botanical Gardens would make a nice afternoon walk. What do you think?
