After running errands one morning Delcan and I headed to Cottage Lake Park in Woodinville to play. We had heard there was a great play ground and beach area. To our dismay the playground is under construction. Right now it's a gravel pit! We walked down by the water to see that it was roped off and surrounded by signs saying "toxic algae: stay out of the water." We walked on the dock and talked with the ducks. Then we walked on the beautiful trail around the park. Declan loved picking up fallen leaves and running in the grass. Even thought our plans were changed, we still had a great time together.
