A break from the rain

Sunday, December 30, 2012

It was partly sunny today! I live near the locks, so I took a walk and some pictures for you.
Here's a ” Christmas rhodedendron”. Isn't it nice to see some color at the end of December!?

Views from the foot bridge:

You probably can't tell, but there are cormorants (diving birds) fishing in the damn surge. The fish swim with it and the birds swim against it catching them. I hope they're getting enough protein to recover from that work out.

A neat trail I haven't been through before:

I get lost following a straight line, so by the time i got home, I had a good number of walking minutes. Woohoo!
Have a fantastic New Year!

    Beautiful pictures!!! Hard to believe that you still are surrounded with green grass and flowers. I would imagine that all the rain makes everything that more lush. Does it get cold in Seattle?
    Your walking paths are beautiful. What a lovely place to live.

    I am so happy to have you back. I am laid low with an upper respiratory infection and I am trying to not share it with DH.
    My ribs are so sore from coughing it brings tears to my eyes. I am doing minimal sparking but I am glad I found this, it looks like a nice place to be.

    Glad you had a break in the rain. Nothing like days of straight rain to drive you around the twist....of course, for some of us, that's a very short trip. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing pictures of your walk. It looks like a really nice place to get your exercise - plenty of different things to see. Yes, the rhodedendron IS nice to see at this time of year. I can't truthfully say that I CAN see the cormorants, but I'll take your word for it. : ) Boy! Swimming against the current should burn calories - wonder if it'd work for me. First, you'd have to get me into the water! LOL

    Have a safe and Happy New Year

    Lovely scenery-thanks for sharing.
    When we were in Seattle, we visited an area where we watched the salmon and in the middle were locks where boats were going thru. Do you know where that was? We went there after we left the Space Needle so must not have been too far from there.

    Nice! It has felt like Seattle here the past couple of days with the low this morning 39F and a thunderstorm yesterday morning followed by showers.. The sun is so welcome, especially this time of year! Glad you got a good chance to enjoy it.
