A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE… February 13, 2017

It was a little on the chilly side again this morning but I just bundled up and went for it. I turned around part way up the street that goes past my house and liked what I saw. I decided I’d share my neighborhood with you this morning.

The closest house on the left, with the portable garage, is our home. Inside the portable garage is the teardrop camper trailer I’m building although not a lot is going on these days because there’s just no way to heat it. The good news is warmer weather is on the way in the not too distant future.

It’s obviously trash and recycle pickup day and you can see Penn Cove in the background.

I must have several hundred photos of the Coupeville Wharf but I never get tired of it and I hope you don’t either. This morning I liked the lighting, reflection and Mt. Baker in the background. It also looks cold which is so true.

I hope that gets your week started and you’ll come back and walk with me again real soon. Enjoy your week ahead!

COLD MOUNTAINS – January 4, 2017

It was a really chilly walk this morning at 24 degrees F. But I bundled up and went for it.

I showed you Mt. Baker at first light yesterday but I walked a little later today and caught it with more light. They sure do have a bunch of snow up there, 156″ so far this season. It also looks like the wind is really howling at the top!

The Olympic Mountains are also showing a lot of snow with the morning sun on them. Some of Sherman’s Pioneer Farm is in the foreground.

And my curiosity shot of the day is a water main leak. Can you imagine the workman’s surprise when they tried to dig down to the water pipe and ran into that rock? I wonder if they’ll leave that rock there or move it?

So that wraps up Hump Day. I hope you have a great day and as always, thanks for walking with me.

Happy New Years Eve – December 31, 2015

Before we get our shoes on and head for the door I’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who follows my blog for walking with me this year. We’ve had some good times and got to see some pretty cool stuff around my wee town of Coupeville, Whidbey Island, Washington, U.S.A.!

Lord willing we’ll be able to continue this adventure into the new year. I hope you’ll join me and tell your friends about all the fun you’re having. I really do like to share my walks.

Thank you also for the comments many of you have made. I really appreciate them and always reply. If you don’t generally comment, please don’t be shy. It just two friends having a little chat.

So bundle up, it’s 26 degrees F. out this morning. It’s easy to take photos of rain or snow or fog but how do you capture “cold”? Here’s my shot at it, get it? 🙂

The obligatory photo of the Coupeville Wharf with a very snowy Mt. Baker in the background.

Because of a high pressure system we have some inversion going on trapping some of the smoke and stuff in the lower atmosphere. Here’s a closer photo of Mt. Baker looking over Coupeville, Penn Cove and Saratoga Passage.

And this is probably the “coldest” photo I could find. The dock going out to the wharf was completely covered with frost. It was very slippery under my feet and cold!

So with that I’ll wrap up 2015 and call it a good year. I hope you had a good year as well and onward to 2016, make it a good one!
