Discovery Park

18 January 2012 | Overlooking Puget Sound
Impending clouds loomed over the Puget Sound horizon and inched closer as we explored the 2 miles of protected tidal beaches of Discovery Park, the largest park in Seattle. Discovery Park is 354 acres of beach, meadow lands, sea cliffs, forest groves, sand dunes, thickets and streams on Magnolia Bluff north of downtown Seattle. Kevin and I took an afternoon trip with our good friend Bill and his kids down the parks loop trail towards South Beach and the West Point Lighthouse.

We discussed whether we thought the coulds towards Alki beach and Bainbridge Island were bringing rain or snow.

We walked towards West Point, looking for sea glass and admiring the colors of the afternoon.

On the way back up the trail to the car, our argument was settled...the clouds that loomed across the sound were snow clouds and were now dusting our hats and jackets through the bare trees.

About: We're going blue water sailing, but first there are things we need to do to get ready. We're here to share what we are doing to prepare for our trip. We hope to inspire those who might like to do the same and learn from those who have stories and lessons to contribute to us.
Extra: I make jewelry too! Sweet Nirvana Jewels was created out of a passion for beads and sailing. All profits are put in to Jamie and Kevin's boat fund, which supports the adventures they have together sailing the waves and racing the wind.
