Today's Walk

I'm avoiding the news. Trying anyway. You know I can't stay out of politics, I go back and forth between enjoying it all and wishing it was over... but the news these days is dismal. Today I peeked at the headlines and just about choked. So Zoe and went for a walk instead of checking CNN on the Blackberry during Luke's soccer practice. I'm glad we did. I found our "Edmonds Marsh" - a nice little bird sanctuary near the beach with wooden boardwalk and interpretive signs with information about the birds who live there. Will have to go back with my zoom lens one of these days.

Then we went on to my lovely fishing pier. No seals or sea lions today, but that's ok. It was a nice walk, Zoe enjoyed herself too.

And now we are watching the news. Or not really, it's Michelle Obama on Larry King Live. She is one impressive person. I really like her. And that's not news so much. Just politics.


  1. I hope the walk destressed you! You found some gorgeous places to walk.

  2. What a beautiful place to walk. I grew up in Edmonds until 4th grade...then we moved to San Diego! Do you live in Edmonds? What great memories I have of my childhood days heart belongs in the woods, on the lakes and eating huckleberries!

  3. We all need to take a break from the news lately and what a great place to destress.
