100 Days - 100 Walks - 300 Miles

I started my daily walks of 3 miles on February 26th and have walked every day since. Today, June 5, 2019, is walk number 100 and the completion of 300 miles, or another way to look at it, I've walked across Washington State and more. I started snapping pictures during my walks on March 1st and have posted on every walk since then right here on John's Island. Of the 100 walks, 97 were around Green Lake in Seattle, Washington, and 3 were in Vancouver, BC. Come along for the last few walks ...

A light breeze is blowing the "cotton" from the
cottonwood tress and looks like snow falling.
Couldn't get a good snap of the cotton falling
but here is how it collects on the edge of the path.
A most curious way for a tree to spread its seeds.

June 4, Tuesday, Walk 99

At the start I walked down to the edge of the lake.
Some of the grass at the edge is already up 2 or 3 feet.
Sunny skies and warm.

Kind of hard to see in the photo but most of the
water lillies have white blooms.

  1. Isn't it amazing how short the distance is when we just keep walking?

  2. That is amazing John! Well done!!

  3. Congratulations on your 100 walks, John. And 300 miles, too! Love the pictures, especially the geese gaggle and the goslings. :-)

  4. Hello, looks like you and everyone are out enjoying the lake, the swimmers, rowers and all the geese and ducks. Congrats on 100 walks and 300 miles. That is awesome. Wonderful series of photos. Wishing you a happy day!

  5. Such beautiful weather. I never tire of the photos of that beautiful setting. You are fortunate to have such a place to walk.

  6. Thanks for these invitations to join you on the walks. The scenery along the path is delightful.

  7. Good for you for keeping on walking!! A great accomplishment.
    So many beautiful photos. Can't even pick a favorite!

  8. I'm sure these photos bring back all of the walk in vivid detail.

  9. Good for you!! You did it! What beautiful scenes these last few days, everyone – including fowl families – enjoying the days! Since I just found your blog a few days ago, I'm still catching up. But what an accomplishment for you! Yay!

  10. Wow, John! that is a lot of walking and taking the pictures just adds to the enjoyment for you AND for us. Congrats on keeping at it. 100 walks! WOW!!!

  11. Hello John!

    Fina naturbilder igen, fågelungarna växer snabbt vilket syns tydligt på dina bilder.

    En intressant bild är det vita luddet på marken. Vi har nämligen också råkat ut för det, under en hel vecka snöade det frön från asp (Popolus) som såg exakt likadant ut som på din bild. Det tråkiga är att fröna gror precis överallt. Har aldrig upplevt något liknande förut.

    Keep on walking!

  12. I'm sitting here giving you a big clap … well done :)
    100 Days - 100 Walks - 300 Miles you've done a nice lot of walking and although I'm fairly new to visiting your blog, I always enjoy my visits and seeing your photographs.

    Keep on walking and keep on taking photographs.
    My very good wishes.

    All the best Jan
