PULLIN’ ANCHOR

Wow, what a difference a day makes. Yesterday it was misty fog and this morning nothing but sunshine. It will probably be another scorcher but it sure was a nice cool 53 degrees F for our walk.

The first thing I spotted was this standoff between a deer and a cat. As it turned out the cat ran away but they stood and stared at each other for the longest time.

Out on Ebey Prairie this barn with the tule fog caught my eye.

It looks like Colleen is at it again, getting ready to add yet another tricycle to her yard art collection. I wonder what color it will be.

Out on the wharf I caught the sun just as it was coming over the horizon.

I also spotted this early bird “Pullin’ Anchor” and heading for distant shores. I also caught the head of a small harbor seal in the background.

In town, at one of my favorite stores, Far From Normal, I spotted this new board game. We may just have to check it out.

On my final leg to home I couldn’t resist one last sunrise photo of this sailboat.

And finally some progress, yippee. Front Street has been half blocked off for almost two years due to the hillside sinking and sliding into the cove. They were concerned about it affecting the road. I guess they decided that it was no  longer a threat, at least not now and filled in the path and removed the barricades. All that was left this morning were some road cones and I suspect that once they get the path tamped down they will go away as well.

Time to turn on the fans and cool the house down. Thanks for walking with me and with any luck we’ll do it again tomorrow.

  1. Hi there,

    I absolutely love your work. I just want to know when you will make a book of your photos so we can buy it. I would love to purchase some of your photos.

    When you see my friend Al Olsen tell him hi from Lynn (in California).

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful sights of your town. I have been there twice but you capture sights I will never see and I really appreciate that.

    • Thank you Lynn for all the nice comments. Hum, a book? I’ll have to give that some thought. I will say hi to Al the next time I see him. Thanks for walking with me.
