GOOD MLK DAY TO YOU – January 16, 2017

Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King. Here in Coupeville the Lions Club is out installing American flags along the main streets to celebrate. By the time they are done there will be around 100 of them.

This guy was grousing as he was trying to put the flag in the hole but not because he had to do it. He was grousing because the little holes that are permanently along the street had frozen water in them making the job much more difficult.

Thanks to the Coupeville Lions Club for all they do to make our little town a better place to live!

Out with the old, in with the new. It looks like they’ve improved the Coupeville high school, Wolves baseball park. They’ve built a new storage shed for all their equipment and it appears as though they are replacing the bleachers as well.

When I was walking over the highway on the overpass walkway I spotted Mt. Rainier way off in the distance. It’s 102 miles away, as the crow flies, but I zoomed in as far as I could and this is what I got. Not great, not terrible but kind of pretty. You’ll notice that the mountain is “wearing a cap”. That’s a saying we have around there that describes the cloud cover over the very top of the mountain. It means that rain is on the way. There you learn something every day!

I have photographed several white deer over the years but they are very rare and seldom seen. This morning, for the first time, I spotted this young white deer. I’ve never seen one this young before. Who knows we may have a herd someday.

And that’s a wrap. It was good to get out and walk with all of you again and look forward to it again soon although the rain in the forecast might slow that down.

Have a great week ahead 🙂
