Magnuson Part II

For this day in between the remembrance of the crucifixion and the Resurrection of Jesus I decided to post Katie and my second walk at Magnuson Park that we took on Tuesday April 4th. I wonder what agony the followers of Jesus had during the time in-between.

Katie was hoping that we would see the blue heron her and Andrew had seen on their walks through the wetlands. We were excited to have that hope realized on this day.

I love having walks with our girl.

The lake was calm on this day and there was no rain during our walk.

You can just barely see Mt. Rainier in this photo.

Looking forward to tomorrow and celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Such a great time of rejoicing.

We are having rain, rain and more rain. Here in Northeastern Washington more roads have washed away and traveling is getting more complicated for a lot of people. Everyone is looking forward to a good dry spell and for all this water to recede. We still have good access to town and everything we need.

Here is a collage of our smiley granddaughter next to her smiley daddy when he was a wee one.

Baby equipment has really come a long way since 1981!

Are you preparing for an Easter service and Easter meal at your home?

Magnuson Park ~ Seattle

Magnuson Park is a 350 acres park on Sand Point at Pontiac Bay, Lake Washington, in the Sand Point neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The park is the second largest in Seattle, after 534 acres Discovery Park in Magnolia.

Established in 1900 (military use 1922-1975)

On Tuesday March 28th our daughter Katie and I had a stroll in the park.

Katie and Andrew live on the edge of Magnuson Park while Andrew is attending the University of Washington. He is working very hard on an Aeronautical Engineering degree.

We had an umbrella in hand on this day that sprinkled on us off and on.

I think this is a white breasted nuthatch.

Sun steps…

I think this is a ring necked duck.

Katie and I are headed for another walk at Magnuson tomorrow and this time we’re hoping for a sunshiny day.
