Sunny Lincoln Park
Dad had completed his Great Backyard Bird Count survey on-line, and was now getting ready for a nice walk through Lincoln Park with Mongo. The sky was a beautiful cobalt blue, and everywhere Dad looked seemed to be a picture perfect view. On the drive over to Mom-mom’s house, he caught a glimpse of the Sound and was so struck by the image, he immediately detoured to take a picture.
When he arrived at Mom-mom’s Dad popped Mongo into the back of the truck and took off for Lincoln Park. Dad was anticipating that the park would be very crowded. The mild temperatures and beautiful weather on a February weekend would bring people out in droves. Dad’s analysis of the situations was correct; the parking lot was full of cars both coming and going.
Fortunately, Dad was able to quickly find a parking spot amongst all the over park visitors. In a flash, Mongo and Dad stepped into the rainforest at the top of the park.
Mongo and Dad like to wander the less used trails in the park. It gives them a chance to enjoy the solitude, before plunging into the mass of humanity down on the beach.
It was a gorgeous day on the Puget Sound. Sailboats were on the water threading their way between the ferries.
Flowers were blooming in the ball fields, and trees were blooming throughout the park.
Lots of people were enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
Mongo had so much fun, that by the time he got home, he was exhausted.
