I’m Back

We are back from our vacation/family reunion and after our “Trip From Hell” we are really glad to be home. We had a fabulous time at the family reunion but the trip was something else. I plan on putting together a travelogue in the future for your enjoyment.

This morning’s walk was sort of short but beautiful. I had a very pleasant surprise when I got to the wharf. I met a new gentleman called Bear who was playing a Nez Perce Native American Flute. I could hear it before I actually saw him and it was a beautiful, haunting sound. He made the flute from Western Cedar. I hope you enjoy the little video clip I have for you. Click on the photo of Bear to hear him play.

There, that should make your day, it sure did make mine!

The deer were out in force this morning, I counted twelve deer. I thought this family was really cute.

This young White-Crowned Sparrow was just waiting for me to take it’s picture so I obliged.

The flower baskets at the Coupeville Library were very pretty and I like the contrast with the “fishy” bike rack.

The flowers are all out at the Lavender Wind store. If you like lavender than this is the place for you.

With that I’ll wrap up the week. I hope you have a great weekend and will come walk with me again next week.

MISTY MORN

It was a real seaside kind of morning with fog and a slight mist in the air. Non the less it was still beautiful, like it always is here in Coupeville.

I was gone missing the last couple of days due to a little project and warm weather. We’re getting ready to go on vacation and I’m in the process of waxing our little trailer. I’ve been getting up and at it early in the mornings before the sun gets to it. I should finish it today.

But I digress :-). Back to our walk this morning.

With all the excitement over the recent World Cup Soccer Match this setting caught my eye. It looks like the game is over!

The Coupeville Library has beautiful hanging baskets of flowers.

As the subject of today’s blog is “Misty Morn” it requires a couple of “misty” photos. Here’s the backside of the buildings along Front Street taken from the wharf.

The old John Robertson’s Store, built in 1866, is finally getting a makeover. It’s been closed for the past couple of years after being several restaurants. It’s now going to be turned into four shops and three apartments, one upstairs and two downstairs. Here’s a rather poor shot of the plans that are posted in the front window.

These are pictures of the outside and inside of the building as of today. In talking with the owner they still don’t have a name for it.

And I spotted these beautiful flowers on my final leg home.

It’s nice to have you join in my walk this morning. I’m already looking forward to tomorrows walk.
