Discovery Park Walk

Yesterday’s single shot from the camera phone didn’t do the walk justice.  Although it was VERY blustery yesterday, the sun was out so I walked a few miles from Ballard to Discovery Park.  The park is about 500 acres of land reclaimed from Fort Lawson Military base and occupies a peninsula of land known as Magnolia Bluff. It juts out into Puget Sound and has a North and South beach of mixed sand and pebbles.

Round trip was about 7 miles and it felt good to stretch my legs and clear my head.  When the weather clears up a bit more, I’ll definitely be visiting more often and maybe have a picnic.

    Man, it is really beautiful out there. I could retire there, get a Polar Fleece, and a dog. Walk up and down the beach, playing catch…

    Good move. 🙂

    You’d fit in completely, Glen. Should I keep my eyes open for sales on messenger bags (Mandatory starting equipment) and job listings in your industry? 🙂

    Check out those White Caps!!! God I wish I could have gone for a sail yesterday. If there’s a nice day this weekend then we’re going to take the boat out. Want to come if we do?
