MORE WITCHES – October 5, 2017

After this morning’s walk I believe the theme for this years “Witching of Coupeville” is “The Wizard of Oz”! Here’s the proof.

These are all new ones that I didn’t see yesterday. I’m not sure who sponsored this one, it was by a rock next to a parking lot.

I also spotted this house with a Halloween display. I always think they should paint this house a brighter color until Halloween and the it really looks spooky, a perfect haunted house! I did mess with the lighting a little bit 🙂

And now for my “Phantastic Photo of the Day”! Yesterday was all about the birds but check this out. These geese are flying south and look at how many seagulls and pigeons are on the roof of the Coupeville Wharf! This place is going to the birds.

I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoyed walking with me.

THE LAST ROSE

This morning I had high clouds but not much fog for a change. It made for a nice six mile walk.

I crossed paths with Deborah, a fellow walker who walks around Coupeville a lot. She told me about “The Last Rose” beside the Seaside Spa and Salon. I searched it out and she was spot on, it is a beautiful rose and the last one. I think you’ll agree.

Out on the Ebey Prairie Reserve I spotted this large group of geese flying high overhead which is a good thing since there is hunting near where I took this photograph.

I love this house and for some reason it reminds me of homes in Nebraska where I grew up. We always had a beautiful fall and this photo seems to bring it all together.

There are more and more people getting into the spirit of Halloween by decorating their homes. This first one is one of my favorite heritage homes. It was built by Dr. W. L. White in 1894. I like the cemetery in the front yard.

And finally this house just up the street from where I live. I do believe they have gone overboard, it’s hard to take it all in.

Have a great weekend. We’re going to go watch the grandkids play soccer.

SIGNS OF THE SEASON

As we “fall” into Autumn it’s hard not to see signs of the changing season. This morning I collected a number of photos that show just how things are changing.

This is the first tree I’ve seen that has really started to take on fall colors.

It looks like the birds have vacated their home for the duration.

The Canada Geese are forming up and filling up on the grain left in the fields.

Of course with that comes the hunters. I spotted these guys a long way away in a field hunting for ducks or geese.

I guess this is why they like to hunt in the particular field.

Sherman’s Prairie Produce Farm has their hay bails all painted up and ready to place in the fields around their farm advertising the fact that they sell pumpkins.

They have been harvesting their pumpkin crop and have a large truck trailer loaded and ready to go to stores around the area.

And finally, one of the least liked signs of the season for kids.

Have a great day and enjoy the seasonal changes.
