I can already hear you saying, "But she's already walked to Perrinville..." That's true, but Mr. D. and I decided that we would do this walk once in each season, and since the last time we walked to Perrinville was in November, we were due for the winter walk. This approximately five-mile walk is also fairly close to home, so it's great for days when there are other activities on the calendar.
The day (Saturday, January 28) was cold and cloudy, so we set off at a brisk pace, and after about ten minutes passed over this little stream that runs under the road and downhill in the direction of Puget Sound.
We passed by neighborhoods with interesting signs and names:
We observed the varied colors of plants in wintertime:
Best of all, even though the weather was cold and raw, there were signs of spring.
We take a break in Perrinville at a little coffee place, where we usually share a large chai. I was so happy to have something warm to drink after being out in the cold, that it didn't occur to me to take a photo there, but next time I will.
We'll be back in Perrinville sometime in the spring; I'll meet you there!
