Indian Summer

After driving Leslie to the airport Wednesday I couldn’t resist driving a little further and eating lunch/dinner at Spuds in West Seattle, and, since there was no reason to rush home to an empty house, I spent the rest of the afternoon driving along the beach and walking through Lincoln Park reliving my childhood.

It was an unusually warm, sunny day for this time of year; even though, I was surprised to see boarders floating out on the Sound in shorts and a tee-shirt.


As I drove up to Lincoln Park, I was greeted by a planter of beautiful flowers reflecting the brilliant sunshine, loudly proclaiming summer’s beauty.

I was amazed at the number of people taking advantage of the sunshine on a Wednesday afternoon. The crowds seemed to proclaim Summer, but a fly by of four female Harlequin ducks, winter visitors, suggested otherwise,

as did the bright leaves starting to Fall.

    1. May have to pull this post; not sure I want to be known for “sweet” posts, just doesn’t sound artistic enough.

  1. Glad to see Spuds come across on your post. One of my early memories of Alki was Spuds. Any season is Spuds season. kjm

    1. Lots of people seem to go there because of early (old) memories of eating there.

      That plus it has the best tasting fish found anywhere around.
