I woke Jean up this morning with a rousing ukulele accompanied happy birthday sung with a Caribbean rhythm. Our resident sea gull joined in the chorus.
Jean’s request for a birthday activity was a walk to and around Beacon Hill Park. Therefore, we bundled up (it was in the 20’s) and headed uphill.
Beacon Hill Park is one of our favorite parks in all our travels. It combines sweeping views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca with ancient trees, lakes, fountains, flowers, and many birds. We love the ducks, gulls, and ravens, but the icing on this birthday treat is the large flock of resident peacocks. They seemed relatively unfazed by the frigid temps.
A new sculpture caught our eye. Moss Lady was created by artistic parks department employees in 2015. She’s enchanting.
The shadows lengthened as we headed back to our condo.
A stop at our neighborhood wine shop secured a bottle of prosecco to celebrate Jean’s day. Some sweet treats from the local bakery will cap off the evening.
Happy Birthday my love!
