This morning I walked west out of Coupeville on Madrona Way for a seven mile round trip. I went to Twin Lagoons near Captain Whidbey’s Inn. Along the way I passed the Penn Cove Mussel farm that’s run by the Penn Cove Shellfish Company. What caught my eye this morning was all the strange water craft they’ve designed and built for harvesting mussels. I know very little about them other then they got out to the rafts where the mussels hang below and pull them up and remove them for processing. You can just let your mind go as to what you think each one will do.
This is looking east back toward Coupeville. You can see the mussel rafts in the foreground, the Coupeville Wharf and then the Cascade Mountains. I love this shot!
Twin Lagoon is called that because there are two lagoons side by side. They don’t look the same so maybe they are just fraternal twins. This is the right one as you look out toward Penn Cove.
And this is the left one.
My “Art Picture” of the day is this old beat up mailbox I came across. I call it “No Mail Today”.
As always I hope you enjoy my photos and comments. Please share them with your friends if you think they might enjoy them as well.
