Am I really capable of posting a blog without a picture of Nate? After today's visit to Green Lake, I think I just might be able to do it.
Green Lake is my favorite place in Seattle. I don't care if it's crowded. I don't care if I almost get ran over by little kids on bikes. And I don't care if we have to maneuver Nate's stroller around people who walk at the pace of snails.
What makes Green Lake better than it already is? A perfect Spring day. It was actually warm outside, which means that all the Seattlites come out to soak up some Vitamin D. White legs and all. The 3-mile trail around the lake is filled with rollerbladers, bikers, skateboarders, walkers, runners, painfully-awkward-looking-wannabe-runners, dog-walkers, and mamas pushing strollers.
Then there are others who lounge around the lake, or fish, or tightrope walk, or play games that I have never seen before.
Doesn't that look like the perfect place to rest?
I love tulips. And do you see that turtle through the bushes?
Some families choose to sit by the lake. Others choose to walk the trail. But obviously I am not the only one who loves this lake because every time I go, it's packed.
I loved our day at the lake. I'm looking forward to many more once this crazy weather warms up.
Do you have a place like this? A place you like to go to for just an hour or two? A place that makes your day or week better?
