The weather forecast yesterday showed 10 days of rain, with one bright spot...today. James (jtvisions) invited me to come along and get out of the house while we could enjoy it without liquid sunshine coming down on us.

So I put on two pairs of socks, long johns (top and bottom), my heated gear and riding gear and set out going north to meet up with James in Arlington.

I didn't show the route below, but this is the area we headed to.

It was foggy this morning, and fairly cold. The low I saw was 34F. We didn't see any grand vistas, but we saw some nice roads and farmland.

Our first stop at the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community and Pioneer Park in La Conner.

From there, we headed to Washington Park. This is looking out to Burrows Island and Burrows Bay.

And yes, the water looked that green.

I have to admit that when I woke up this morning, I didn't want to go. But I also knew that if I could get myself out there, it would be a wonderful day.

And now, let the rain begin... :D
