09 – Post Point to Fairhaven Park

Seeking protection from today’s impending rain and wind, there was barely a sprinkle as we set off on a hike from the Post Point Lagoon to Fairhaven Park, and back.

Me . . . at the Post Point Lagoon

Beginning at the lagoon, we first took the Lower Padden Creek Trail, then the Fourth Street Loop Trail and then continued on to the Larrabee Trail. Connecting with the Interurban Trail, we followed that to Fairhaven Park. Protected from the sprinkles and wind that were starting to brew, I felt this stretch of the trail especially tranquil.

Once at Fairhaven Park, we explored a few of the smaller trails there, then turned around and followed the same series of trails back to our starting point at the Post Point Lagoon. By the time our hike was finished, the storm had picked up force and strong gusts of wind were blowing, and with the wind, came a steady rain.
