Well, last saturday at this time, the overnight temps were in the upper 30s and the day never cracked 50. Chilly winds, grey skies, threatening clouds all conspired to reduce the crowds to only the toughest souls at our first ever Celebrate Lincoln Park.
52WoLP is a year long exploration of and fascination with all things Lincoln Park, West Seattle.
This saturday, a mere 7 days later, windows and doors will be propped open, temps will be 25 degrees or more higher, and we’ll all be out in droves.
But the show went on, and it was pretty cool. We even had Park Rangers there in full regalia and I sort of felt like we were at a campground at some National Park, I loved it!
The Alliance for Lincoln Park Nature, ALPN, was there with nature and bird walks, art-in-the park table for water color sketching and writing. We had a lot of fun with both the sketching and the writing–fast writing exercises on various park-related prompts, and there’s just nothing like sketching to see where you are. It’s a beautiful thing.
