Power-walking, skating, paddling, or pushing, we love the unique ways Seattleites cruise the 3.5 mile loop that circles Green Lake. This Wednesday Peter, Brad and I came up with a workout of our own — one that we hope made Green Lake a little bit greener. Brooms in hand, we set out on a curling-inspired stroll to remove stray gravel and debris from the paved walking path circling the picturesque lake.
While we took turns sweeping away the crunchy hazards, we used the opportunity to gather more than 30 pounds of trash from the lakeside! Hopefully our handiwork prevented a few scraped knees and left the loop a little greener than we found it.
Take a look at some of our odd finds of the day:
Looks like someone's missing their other slipper!
Hmmm - Wonder who lost a hubcap at Green Lake?
Later in the day, Toby the German Shepherd stopped by to say hello and take a rest while on his daily walk around the lake. Luckily we had a few dog treats on hand for our new friend!
We had a great time doing our part to spruce up the Green Lake path, and we can't wait to come back. Until then, join us as we check out the Freemont Sunday Market this weekend!
