Our first stop was Ines Patisserie for some yummy pastries. We passed City People's, Cafe Flora, a crepe restaurant and other shops and restaurants on our way to
E Lake Washington Blvd.
We weren't on this street long before we spotted a stairway at 31st Avenue E taking us down into the valley.
We were in a neighborhood of tidy homes and streets and were surprised to come upon a large lot which housed a small gray horse.
Next we came upon the Valley School and its multiple buildings and play structures.
Then it was back to Madison where we saw more interesting shops and restaurants before heading east again and coming upon a community garden
and the old Martin Luther King Elementary School.
Our last discovery was Julia Lee's (Knudsen) Park.
This is a great neighborhood and I will return to enjoy all it has to offer on a sunny day.
