WINTER OLYMPICS

What a beautiful morning for a walk. Not too cold, no wind and just a little chilly, perfect! Along the way I saw more signs of Christmas with a Dinosaur Santa, huh?

On out toward Ebey Prairie I passed the junior high/high school where they have a “Rock”. I have seen this rock painted with things like “Bob and Judy Forever” and “Go Wolves” but this mornings message was especially nice as it went out to everyone who drove or walked by.

I’m not sure what this old farm building is but I sure do like it. I have no idea what it’s function was on the farm. It’s tall, square and not very big. Any ideas?

The Olympic Mountains were looking quite “Wintery” this morning making for “Winter Olympics”!

And just a little bit more Christmas spirit with this beautiful holly bush.

For all you working people, “What Day Is It”? For all you others enjoy your Wednesday.

SNOWMAN INVASION

It was warmer this morning but really cloudy, almost looked like it could snow. I spotted more Christmas decorations including Cook’s Corner Park, which is where the town celebrates the lighting of the town Christmas tree even though it’s a big flag pole with a bunch of lights on it.

One of my favorite historic homes was lighted as well.

The “mussel men” were out on the mussel rafts harvesting their catch and I thought even their boat lights looked festive. They probably wouldn’t agree 🙂

And here they are, the “Snowmen/Snow-women of Coupeville”. This is just a sample I put together, there has to be over a hundred around town.

Bundle up, in case you haven’t noticed it’s cold out there!

THE FLAGS OF AUTUMN

Once again It was quite dark for my morning walk which limited my photo-0ps. Then I noticed a fall flag, then another, and yet another. Before I knew it I had some snap shots for my blog. Notice I didn’t say photographs, nope, they’re not great but nice colors, enjoy.

And then there’s Thanksgiving.

And lastly I saw this and thought these people might be pushing it a bit. I didn’t talk with them but because we live near a Navy base I cut them some slack as they may have a family member who’s being deployed that may not be home for Christmas.

So with that we start another week. Make it a great one!
