STRANGE CROPS

It was a crystal clear morning for my walk today. Unfortunately I spent most of it looking at the ground, let me explain. Yesterday while riding my new bike I lost my “FitBit”. It was only a four mile ride but when you’re looking for a needle in a haystack, that’s a lot of looking down. I walked a total of six miles and did not find it, darn.

What I did salvage from my walk was a nice photo and some silly ones. I’ll start with the silly ones first.

Here on the Ebey Prairie they grow some very strange crops. To being with did you know that they grow “marshmallows”? Well they do here.

We have another farmer that grows “Seagulls”. I don’t believe  I’ve ever eaten a farm grown Seagull 🙂

This is the story of the “Hard Workin’ Guy and The Slacker”.

The first guy, the “Slacker” was responsible for sweeping the edge of the road for the line painter.

The whistle blew and he stopped for the day.

The “Hard Workin’ Guy”, a “Line Painter”, only had a mile to go to finish the road so he kept right on working to finish the job even though the whistle blew.

What a dedicated guy 🙂

And finally a really nice photo of a farm with the Olympic Mountains in the background basking in the beautiful morning sun.

Have a great week ahead and thanks for visiting my Photoblog.

MORE FOG

Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days but I’ve had things going on in the mornings so never got “Round Tuit”.

This morning’s walk was foggier than previous days so even “Phog Fotos” were difficult. Here’s a photo of one of the farms on Ebey Prairie which gives you a good idea of the degree of fog.

The people with the “Tin Family” have them made up for Halloween, cute.

They say a photo should tell a story all on it’s own. Well if you’ve ever been to Toby’s Tavern in Coupeville you’d know that they have some of the best mussels and clams around. This picture sums up why the are so good. The Penn Cove Mussel Farm is about one mile west of town. This truck is delivering mussels and clams right from the water to the tavern. To be fair to other eateries in town they all get fresh daily deliveries of shellfish from Penn Cove Shellfish.

A comment from one of my new subscribers suggested a “Characters I Encounter” section in my blog. I like the idea and I’ll start with this “character”. It’s my friend Al who walks ten miles each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. He’s a lot of fun and great guy. Nice picture Al 🙂

Have a great weekend filled with fun and joy.
