NO POOP! RIGHT! – January 20, 1915

I’m sorry about missing our walk yesterday but just as I walked out the door it started raining. I don’t like walking in the rain because it’s not very good for photos or my camera. A half hour later the rain had stopped so I got suited up again and out the door. As I got to the end of our driveway here it came again. That did it, done for the day.

This morning though it was beautiful and clear as I left the house in the dark. I did see one interesting thing. The Whidbey Isle Yarn shop has a knitted bicycle out front. It was too far away from the store to get them both in so I used a flash on the bike and lightened the background in Photoshop. I put the two together and here’s what I got. That was fun.

When I got to Ebey Prairie the fog had rolled in and no photo-ops. But that all changed as I got to the Coupeville Wharf. The fog had rolled on shore and up the hill. I caught this sailboat with the fog rolling away and the morning sky coming to life.

I took that photo from the end of the dock and as I turned around I thought the wharf looked photo-worthy as well.

One of the problems with a seaside village is bird poop! We have many seagulls, crows, starlings and heron. You really have to look out for those heron, they can whiten a large area of a deck.

To prevent this from messing up the pier going to the wharf they string fishing line a few inches above the railings. This is supposed to make it difficult for the seagulls to land on the railing. I think it worked for a little while but our seagulls are pretty smart and have figured out that if they stand on the fishing line the can sit there and poop on the deck all they want 🙂

So with that happy thought, onward to your week. As always thanks for walking with me.

  1. The Wharf seems to always be photo-worthy, doesn’t it? Love how your photo captured its deep-red color on a beautiful, ‘silver’ morning!
