This morning I doubled my mileage from yesterday and walked three miles. It felt good and I do believe I’m on the mend. I just walked around town but found some things of interest for you.

First stop, one of my favorite heritage homes. It’s the Captain Joseph Clapp home built it 1886. He was a “charming and witty man” who was the master of the tall ships “Charmer”, “Atlanta” and “Jabey Howes”. After he retired from sailing he was the Post Master of Coupeville from 1898 to 1915 as well as deputy County Treasurer and Justice of the Peace.


On Front Street a city worker was already out watering our beautiful flower baskets that hang all over town.


Right near where he was watering I spotted this Great Blue Heron perching on an old light pole in front of the Coupeville Wharf.


Out on the wharf I looked back toward town and spotted this King Fisher sitting on a rail. I just love the sound they make when they fly.


Toward the south side of town I spotted this cotton tail sitting on the little hill above me. They don’t pose very long so felt this shot was sort of lucky.


Back home I saw this deer munching away on my new neighbors, Steve and Betty, shrubs in front of their house. Welcome to Coupeville and good luck with your plants 🙂


For all you hard working folks, Happy Hump Day! For all us retired folks, enjoy the day, whatever day it is.
