THE BLUEST SKIES – April 26, 2018

Perhaps you remember the song from the 60’s, “The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen Are In Seattle”. Well here on Whidbey Island that song was never truer. I believe the sky was bluer than I’ve ever seen it!

Now here’s what I’m talking about:

Pink flowering tree against the blue sky.

And of course the Coupeville waterfront against the blue sky!

Coupeville Waterfront

WOW, what a morning. I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did, it was really spectacular!

Tomorrow the weather starts changing back to spring but this short summer teaser sure was nice.


This morning’s walk conjured up a bunch of “blue” songs, “The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen”, “Blue Moon” (but no moon), “Color Me Blue”, etc. The reason was because of the blue skies I saw as I started out. But you might be surprised by my photos as I’m sure this is what you are thinking of. This is the Blue Goose Inn that I took near the end of my walk.


But that’s not the case. This is what started me thinking “blue”. This photo is looking out over Coupeville and I used no Photoshop on it at all.


Out on Ebey Prairie I saw the sun rising and you guessed it, it was “blue”!


Looking south toward the Olympic Mountains, “blue”.


Looking north across the prairie, “blue”.


Looking up at a Orion P3 sub chaser flying overhead, “blue”.


This farm has a nice “blue” background.


It may be a “blue” Friday but I’m a happy guy 🙂

Have a great weekend and please give a minute or two to remember our courageous veteran’s during this Veteran’s Day weekend.
