A Valentines Kiss for you
I can start my walk by going uphill away from downtown or I can go down hill to sea level and walk Capital Lake or Percival Landing. If I take the Percival Landing route this delightful statue is near the beginning of the walk around the Inlet.
I love how the couple is just taking advantage of the moment , of just being in that space and choosing to reconnect with each other – connection holds the imagination in its embrace and is suspended in time.
The Kiss was designed and created by Richard S Beyer in 1990 and was added to the board walk down to the Port. The couple are in the perfect position to be admiring the Capital Buildings and Dome or they could be turned around to see the sailboats behind and off in the distance across the Sound the Snow Capped Olympic Mountains.
The Landing contains other lovely pieces of art and flower boxes and benches all along the route. Several outstanding eateries are just off to the side and the walk turns at the Port and directs one through the Farmers Market.
A crafts fair is held on the Landing each year and local artists share their works and endeavors and there is an amazing wooden boat fest complete with tugboat races and tribal canoe storytelling.
I just thought I would share this KISS with you on this Valentines Day and wish you a loving moment in your day and someone to share it with.
My Maternal Grandparents were married for over 60 years and choose February 14th long before it became a Candy Festival with rules and appropriate dollar amounts attached. As a matter of fact this date became National Celebration of the Potato Chip Day long before it became Valentines Day, in the USA!
My wish for you is that someone or some event touches your heart with love and you will feel the radiant blessing of THE KISS.
What does Valentine’s Day mean for you? How do you make it a loving day?
