This mornings walk was cool, 45 degrees F; breezy, gusts to 15 MPH; and raining. It made for an interesting walk that was only 4.8 miles long. When I have the hood up on my rain coat it makes it difficult to look around as usual for photo ops. I did notice a bench and thought that might make for something interesting.
There are a lot of places around Coupeville where people like to sit out and enjoy the scenery. A lot of seats face Penn Cove where you can watch sailboats and other water craft go by. So with that preamble here’s what I found.
This bench sits beside a small pond in these peoples front yard along with a view of the cove.
This one is interesting as it looks like vines could grow on it but I didn’t see any.
Here’s a nice place to spend an evening watching the sunset over a campfire.
I saw this one hanging under a tree down on Madrona Way. It too looks out to the cove.
This setting is next to one of my favorite heritage homes in Coupeville. It looks like a nice gathering spot with a campfire and glass of red?
It’s unfortunate that the perspective doesn’t show it but I think Lilly Tomlin lives in this house. This chair is about eight feet tall, just like the rocking chair Edith Ann use to sit in.
And just in cast you aren’t fortunate enough to live in Coupeville and have a chair there are numerous benches around town where you can enjoy the view as well. This bench, provided by the Lions Club, is in Captain Thomas Coup Park.
So come visit Coupeville. If you do be sure to wave or stop and chat with us on our front porch where we sit and watch the tide go in and out.
Thanks again for reading my blog, I hope you enjoy it. Please share the fun with your friends and family.
