Today is another special day as I welcome a new "Follower" to my blog. Welcome aboard and a very big THANK YOU to Allan and Jeanne Webster. I appreciate your attention to this little blog and I hope you will be entertained by it.
This afternoon I drove a mile down the road to visit my dear friend, Dorothy. We visited for quite a while and she gave Annie a few kibble treats, before I said my good-byes. I'm hoping to see Dorothy one more time before we leave town again. When I left Dorothy's house this is what the sky looked like....
After our visit, I wanted to check out a little park in Tumwater to see if spring was beginning to arrive yet. It was a very short drive to the Tumwater Historical Park. This is a nice little park tucked between Interstate 5 and Capitol Blvd. and runs parallel to the Deschutes River. There are 2 restored homes that have been turned into museums, but were not open at this time. There is also a large grass area for kids play or games, a great playground with all sorts of equipment for outdoor play, and a nice assortment of picnic tables. We have taken the "Grands" here for summer picnics a few times. The signs of a newly arriving spring were not too evident, however, some trees were flowering and they looked beautiful. As I was taking a couple of photos I noticed the sky was turning a darker color and the lovely white clouds had vanished.
This is typical weather for the Tumwater/Olympia area in March. Last year, they got a good bit of snow even in April. Fortunately, we were in the town of Salem, Virginia by that time. I'm hoping that we get nothing worse than rain while we are here this month. That's easy to live with....we are used to the climate in Western Washington after living here for 16 years. Having said that, it will be nice to get down to our warm southern states in a few weeks!
Until next time....so long for now!
