Enjoying some days in the sun at Hovander & Sharpe parks

My husbands sister came for a visit this past week, we shared some of our beautiful area with her.
We walked the trails & gardens around Hovander park. I really enjoyed the Children's Story garden.

We then walked over to the Fragrance garden before heading out to the boardwalk trail to Tennant lake.


The lake is nearly covered with Lily pads.


We climbed up the stairs in the Tower before we left. What a wonderful way to view the surrounding area.

The spectacular "summer" weather was a welcome addition to our time together. Our day at Sharpe park couldn't have been more beautiful. I love Sharpe park, it has the perfect mix of a forest trail with it's varieties of ferns, mosses, trees and a sea bluff trail with succulent flowers and plants along with wide sweeping views. Arid and humid environments all on the same trail.
We sat at Porpoise point for lunch and saw a couple of kayakers gliding along the shore. We also saw an Otter and several Porpoise swimming along just below us while we ate. We could also see the snow topped Olympic mountain range off in the distance.









I'm so grateful that we live in such a beautiful area. It's always nice to get a chance to share it.
