Believe it or not…

It is possible to have sunny days in Seattle, even in the winter!  You may be skeptical, but here’s the proof!  Ta Da!

This was the view of Seattle and Lake Union from Gas Works Park this afternoon.  People were out and about, enjoying the great weather. This hill is a favorite spot for kite flying.

For our friends who visited recently and missed ‘The Mountain’ –- Mount Rainier in all its majesty --  here it is!

These photos were taken in Kerry Park in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. On the left, you can see the iconic Space Needle.

Looking westward, we snapped this picture of the Olympic Mountains a few minutes before sunset.

It was a beautiful day!  Sigh… See why we love it here?

Happy spring, girls!
Just popping in to say hello and see what you're up to on the other side of the country.
That certainly was a beautiful winter's day in your neck of the woods. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos.
I hope you're enjoying beautiful spring weather now.
