Seattle Saunter around Lake Union

L1230382

Perhaps our pace was quicker than a saunter, but “Seattle Saunter around Lake Union”, the title of this post, sure does have a good ring to it.   Rick, Jack, Don, Simone, sweet Annie-the-terrier, and I went on a 9 mile walk around Lake Union today.  It was the first time the three guys reunited since last October’s trek in the Himalayas.

It must be in the 50s today and feels like spring.  I have to keep reminding myself that the cold weather is coming back and we still might see some snow before Old Man Winter says goodbye for the season.  It was wonderful to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and to admire bridges, houseboats, and the many pocket parks along Lake Union. For those of you living in Seattle, I hope you got to go out and bask in this oddly warm and sunny February day!
