It doesn’t look like winter in the rainy Northwest, does it? Well, not every day is rainy! This day was really nice – the sun is warm here, whenever it comes out, but when the sky is clear you know it’s cold!
I have been having SUCH fun riding and hitting the trails most weeks. Emmy loves to get outside of the barn, too. Funny how horses spook less on the trails where there’s far more weird stuff going on. The only hazard is getting to the trails from the road, but I’m managing to do that with more confidence, too.
If you’re looking for a good fall walk, try Fort Ward at the south end of Bainbridge. You can grab coffee in Lynwood Center, head out on a nice 5K walk along the water then up through the woods and back to the parking area at the boat ramp. Along the way you’ll see bunkers and gun batteries from WWI and WWII. There are restrooms along the way, but no drinking fountains. Bring your own snacks. Afterwards you can hit Hammy’s for burgers, Treehouse Cafe for a broad menu including great salads, the Boathouse for awesome deli sandwiches and coffee, and Island Cool for frozen yogurt. Adopt a cat at PAWS on the way home…
