Week 26 – Spring in our step!

April 5, 2009

For some reason this winter felt especially long. Maybe it was the abundance of snow this year, maybe it was the large heating bills, or maybe it was just the normal gray that all Seattlites get to know like a cranky relative.  Whatever it may be…60+ degrees and a sun-filled day made everyone’s smile just a tiny bit brighter.

Ben and I opted to fill our buckets at Lincoln Park in West Seattle where we could get the best of both worlds: sun, sand, lush greenery and an abundance of free parking.    

Babies in strollers, dogs on leashes and smiling people saying “thank you” littered our stroll.  Rubbish was hard to find but it didn’t matter since there was a definite spring in our step.  Ben even hopped the fence to get that empty bag of chips that was slightly out of reach.  

One leisurely stroll and two buckets later we headed home. “Not all  those who wander are lost.”  J.R.R. Tolkien.
