SPIDER WEB AND SCARECROW

The Haunting of Coupeville continues as I discovered on my morning walk today. Some of the “haunting” is natural while others are man made as you’ll see.

It was even foggier and darker this morning than yesterday but once again I made the best of it and had a nice walk.

The spiders seem to be really busy building webs to catch food for their winter stores. This one with the autumn leaves really caught my eye.

This spider was lying in wait for the next tasty meal.

Another new scarecrow showed up this morning. It’s presented by the Coupeville Elementary School, Second Grade, nicely done kids.

I grew up in a small Nebraska town where most homes had nice big front porches. This home, especially with the fall colors, really reminds me of those times.

The Halloween decorations are going up all around Coupeville and this gentleman, I forgot his name, was helping the Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association group put up hay bails, pumpkins and corn stalks. They are all along Front Street, nicely done group.

As usual, thanks for walking with me, I really enjoy your company!

GTE

We are into a stretch of weather that is just wonderful. It was 52 F when I went out the door at 5:45am and by the time I got home an hour later it was 60 F, perfect!

When’s the last time you heard the initials “GTE”? Probably June 30th 2000, that’s when they merged with Bell Atlantic and became Verizon. Despite that fact I noticed a pay phone that I walk by almost every day. To my surprise the sign says “GTE”. I really doubt that’s the case but I did find it interesting.

On my way to Ebey Prairie I couldn’t help but notice the sign at the Coupeville Elementary School. I think maybe the person who put the sign together may have had some help from the kindergartner’s they are talking about. While it’s cute it doesn’t sent a very good example.

The Olympic Mountains were being kissed by the morning sun so I just had to take this panorama photo. If you click on it you’ll get a nice big view of it.

This crop is almost ready to harvest. I’m not sure what it is but it sort of looks like wheat but I don’t believe it is.

And this field was freshly mowed but again I’m not sure what it is. I grew up on a farm in Nebraska where we mostly had corn and that’s my excuse for not knowing what these crops are.

Way up on a power pole I spotted this immature Eagle. It sat still for one photo but then took off. Fortunately I was able to get one in flight as well.

And with that, walk on my friends 🙂
