Snohomish River Trail

Dear husband loves exploring antique stores and I’d just assume wander around outside. So when we went to downtown Snohomish, he went off to look at old things and I walked some of the Snohomish River Trail. I started near the bridge and the entrance to town and walked a ways. What made me stop in my tracks was the line in the concrete wall that showed the flood line from 1995. 350′ of river bank collapsed during the flood. After that disaster, the city built the trail which at least on a beautiful Sunday was getting a lot of use.

Mukilteo Lighthouse Park


So a while back I won a nights stay at the Silver Cloud Hotel in Mukilteo. We went this weekend and while I my dear husband napped, I slipped out to explore the near by Mukilteo Lighthouse Park. It was a glorious evening, unseasonably warm and the high school students were enjoying the breeze in their prom finery. There were couples in love and families roasting marshmallows in the fire pits. And the Mukilteo Ferries traveled to and fro.
