Lovely weather lately here in Seattle, and it has put me in mind of doing some lawn bowling. There is a bowling green nearby in Woodland Park, near the Zoo. We had gone searching for the green some weeks ago but hadn’t been able to find the correct way to get in to the Park in order to find the green. I subsequently talked on the phone with a club member and got more specific directions….but that bit of paper is not to be found now. Nevertheless, I put the woods in the car and off I went. The website said there was social bowling from 11 to 2 on Tuesdays. It was Tuesday and it was 11 o’clock.
I searched for the entrance, couldn’t find it, came home, decided to go back and try again – I felt quite determined. This time I went up a side road, up through the park, saw a sign pointing to the lawn bowling green. I was getting closer. Another false turn or two, but yes I found it. And this is what I found.
Not a soul in sight anywhere – well at least I wasn’t missing anything. And I did manage to find the way to get to the green. Maybe I’ll have to try Friday evening which is the other time when the website indicates that there will be bowling.
