Between the Skagit River and the sea, there is a lot of water around here that needs to be kept in place. We don't want salt water in our tulip fields so we have dike districts and miles and miles of dikes. Some of these dikes have fences and no trespassing signs but others are managed as public trails.
It was fun to get out yesterday morning and go for a run on a dike trail. We saw flocks of green-winged teals, a big old rusty winch in the wetlands and Mt. Rainier in the distance. It was great to have some sunshine; the cold morning became a warm afternoon. Yay, spring!
