Cold and Sunny Saturday Morning

The air is cold, crisp, and foggy, but the weather forecast is sunny. My husband and I added extra layers in the clothes and headed to Fremont, a popular area for shopping , dining, walking, and jogging. When the sun comes out in winter Seattle, many people go out for sunshine and fresh air. We are one of them.

We love walking around the city as well as nature. There are cute small shops, restaurants, and cafes in Fremont. There is a beautiful ship canal and people enjoy jogging, biking, and walking by the canal. We started our walk from a local chocolate factory where we can also buy some chocolate in a small shop there. We took some pictures of bikers, joggers, and kayaks over the bridge. We went to our favorite bakery where we usually need to wait about 15 minutes to get the best croissant but that is worth it.

The icy fog was disappeared and the sky was blue and some white cloud like cotton candy floated. The air was still cold but I felt the warmth of the sunshine on my face. My husband found some hummingbirds chirping on the trees. It’s Saturday and sunny! There is a fresh croissant and coffee in my hands. I felt free and happy walking by the canal with my husband. I love this moment, small happiness in sunny Saturday morning.

土曜日の天気予報は晴れ!雨やグレーの曇り空が多いシアトルの冬。家にこもってる理由はありません。旦那と一緒にカメラを持ってシアトルの中心部に近いフリーモントへ朝散歩。

フリーモントはオシャレなレストランやカフェなどの小さなお店が立ち並び、ユニオン湖に続く運河沿いはジョギングや散歩を楽しむ人々で賑わってます。シアトルの晴れの日は雨の日よりもぐっと気温が下がります。でも空は澄み切った青空で所々で白い雲がポカポカ浮かんでます。

私達は地元のお店も一緒になってるチョコレート工場から歩き始め、お気に入りのパン屋さんへ。朝からたくさんの人が並んでるけど、ここのクロワッサンは最高に美味しい。少し並んで待ってもこのクロワッサンのためなら苦になりません。運河にかかる橋の上でサイクリストやジョガー、かやっくを楽しむのも人々の写真を撮ったり、旦那が教えてくれるハチドリの鳴き声に耳を傾けたり。

空気は透き通り冷たいけど、私の頬には陽の温かさが。今日は土曜日でしかも晴れ!コーヒーとまだ暖かいクロワッサンを楽しみながら運河沿いを旦那と一緒に朝散歩。何でもない普通の週末の朝だけど、この瞬間が大好きでここにも小さな幸せがありました。
