Any day is a good day for kayakers and canoeists on Lake Padden. It is a city park - with no houses on the entire lake. There are picnic areas, a playground, baseball diamonds, a dog park, a swimming beach and hiking and horse trails
This kayaker could use her paddle - or her foot pedals. I'd never seen a kayak with foot pedals before
Gliding in for a landing
And along came a canoe
Slipping through the water
Stopping to look quietly at the ducks
And on the way out of the park - just across the street - and not in the park - is one of our favorite houses. It has recently been sold and the new owners have painted and restored it - there are two wicker rockers on the front porch, and a quick hike across the field and they are at the entrance to the park.
