WASH OUT – January 22, 2016

I got in a nice “half” walk this morning. It was a balmy 52 degrees F but very cloudy when I left home. I had checked radar and we had our “Weather Hole” that’s caused by the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains.

I got half way across Ebey Prairie heading for Ebey’s Landing and heard a wild ruckus. It was a huge flock of ducks flying around and landing on a pond in a field. I grabbed my camera and managed to get a photo of it. It’s not great because it was still fairly dark out but you get the idea.

Shortly after that the skies opened up and I turned around and headed for home. Sadly I had not taken my rain gear so by the time I got home I was soaked to the bone.

About a half mile from home the rain stopped and by the time I got home the sun was out, crazy weather.

Along the way I saw this cormorant  sitting on a mooring buoy looking like he owns the whole ocean.

As I starting to dry out I spotted this gorgeous rainbow over my wee village. This place truly is a pot of gold!

With that we out of the way we can get on with the weekend. I hope you have a wonderful one and will walk again with me next week.

  1. We sold our home in Coupeville back in 2014 and now reside in Florida. I just want you to know much we enjoy staying in touch with the island through your camera lens. We talk to our friends on a regular basis, keeping up with neighborhood and read the paper twice a week, but you remind us optically how beautiful Whidbey Island truly is.

    Thank you for your effort.

    Sincerely,

    Larry & Dean

    • So you now live in the other corner of the US, that’s too bad 😉 I sounds like you really miss Coupeville. I so glad that I can sustain some of the good memories you obviously had when you live here.

      Thanks you for the nice comments and I’ll keep the photos coming.

      Ken
