Friday Refresher

 When I walked out to get the newspaper Friday morning, there was the promise of a pleasant day in the sunrise.

Then we were off to breakfast with our view of Mt Rainier over a fog filled valley on our way.
Only our friend Jan was at breakfast with us this morning, but we had a good visit while I enjoyed my bacon and egg and hash browns that someone else had cooked for me. I am not a morning person, but I love a cooked breakfast, so it is a real treat to have it cooked for me. Unfortunately this will be my last breakfast out for a while. I have two appointments next Tuesday and then I will be going into lockdown until after my heart surgery. The exception will be a well masked trip to the grocery store during a non busy hour.

After getting back home this morning and catching up on some blogs, we went outside to do some work in the yard. It felt good to be outside and get some light work done. 

Then after lunch we went on a little outing, a change of scenery I had been longing for.

On the way to Seahurst Park over on the sound, we stopped at a Starbucks for coffee, for me a latte and a bit of chocolate. Then we sat on a bench at the park to enjoy the scene and our beverages.

Then it was time to walk.

We walked the path and then got down on the beach a bit, enjoying the crunch of gravel under our feet. 
The Olympic Mountains to the west were just barely peaking up over the fog bank. 

We walked just under a mile and a half. It was hard but also wonderfully refreshing. 

I'm  good now for a while, until I have to run away again. 


  1. Good for you, Linda. Wishing you all the best next week and a quick recovery.

  2. I wish you all the best along the road to your surgery. You went to a great place for your outing.

  3. Ah, that is more like it. No rain , no snow, just a great walk. Hope it stays nice in case you get the urge again. Does your grocery store do pick up? I love that service. No contact.

  4. You are lucky to have so nice sceneries.
    We went out today and it was cold and refreshing.
    I will be thinking of you and I wish you a quick recovery.

  5. My only viewpoints of Seattle are buildings, homes, and freeways. Your getaway is a wonderful glimpse into the open wilderness that it also has. Great day, thank you!

  6. It sure is nice to have a break from the rain. I love your walk, and I am wishing you the very best of outcomes with your surgery. It's wonderful that you have Tom to take care of things while you're recovering. :-)

  7. That looked like a lovely walk. A chilly one though. Stay well. I sure wish you all the best with your upcoming surgery.

  8. What a lovely area to walk! You have so many of those close by.

    Wishing you all the best in your appointments and upcoming surgery.

  9. Nice walk! Good to hear that you have a date for your surgery!

  10. You do live in some of the best scenery in the country!

  11. You got some gorgeous shots! I am reminded that I have a free drink at Sbux.

  12. Looks cold but beautiful. Good luck with your surgery.
