PEEK-A-BOO – January 30, 2017

This morning’s walk was very nice but kind of disappointing in the photo department. It looked like the sunrise was going to pop but then it did pop, just like a balloon. The lighting was poor so not a lot to share but here’s my Monday offering just the same.

There seems to be a lot of anger and rage among the people of the United States these days. I’m really getting tired of it and so I offer this as a suggestion.

Even though early January was rather chilly around here, the month is ending with Daffodil’s popping up from the ground, oh boy!

There is a group, “Whidbey Island Rocks” on Facebook, that paint rocks and places them around the island. Coupeville is no exception and this morning I discovered this rock painted by LJK on October of 2016. It was on the trail that goes through Kruger Woods. Their Facebook page says that you can either keep the rock or put it somewhere else for others to enjoy. I took the rock and will place it in a different location in a few weeks. If you live in, or visit Coupeville, be on the lookout for this one.

Thank you for walking with me on this rather gray morning but I wish you sunshine for the week ahead!

EGG SHACK, NOT REALLY

Today it was cloudy and breezy but I walked just the same and headed out Parker Road specifically to take a photo of an old row boat that is now a daffodil flower garden. Unfortunately it did not “pop” this year like in years past. Perhaps they didn’t fertilize it enough. It was still pretty but just not spectacular.

There’s really not many photo-opps on Parker Road but I did find the Egg Shack interesting. They have a sign out on the road advertising eggs for sale.

About a block and a half down Parker Woods Lane you come to the “Egg Shack”. But it’s not a cute little shack as depicted on the sign but a cooler.

It’s all on the honor system, you leave money and take the eggs from the cooler. Even though they don’t have a cute shack they do have good, fresh, eggs. I got a kick out of the sign on top of the “shack”.

Oh wait, they do have a shack, a “chicken shack”. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a very good picture of it but they definitely have chickens.

And that wraps up the week of walking. Have a grand weekend and I’ll catch up with you next week.
