HEADS OUT FOR SPRING

Heads Out for Spring

The turtles have come out of hibernation on Green Lake and Lake Washington and many people are thrilled to see them. For some folks, seeing the turtles bask in the sun on wooden logs is the unofficial start to Spring.

Turtles surfacing the waterline is a magical time in Seattle. These shelled critters act as a barometer for this body of water we know as Green Lake.Many of the flowers and cherry blossom trees have been out for about a month now but the turtles seem to know when there’s little chance of going back to freezing temperatures.

Baseball’s in the air too! The Seattle Mariners have their season opening game at Safeco Field today after starting the season overseas in Japan. There have been more and more Green Lake open houses, too, and that’s another sign that warmer weather and sunny days are more common. If you are interested in open houses held by Cooper Jacobs please contact us at courtney@cooperjacobs.com.

If you are looking at homes for sale in Seattle, then Green Lake is a great place to live.

Green Lake Pathway of Lights 2012 Tonight Beginning At 5PM

Don’t Forget The Green Lake Pathway of Lights Tonight!

The Green Lake path is something I hold very dear and near to me.  This year in particular, I have been one with it and walked it on most days during the year only to stray to the Lake Union Loop, Queen Anne Boulevard, or the Discovery Park Loop Trail once in a while.
