7:05am SUNRISE – March 10, 2015

Sorry for the short hiatus but I’ve been getting up in the mornings and working really hard on my 1960 Sunbeam, Series I, Alpine. I’ve pulled the entire steering system along with the crossmember off. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.

With the Daylight Savings Time change I’m now thrown back into the dark. Combine that with a heavy cloud cover and it makes picture taking difficult.

I decided this morning that I would walk until the official sunrise at 7:05am and take a photo of it no matter what it looked like so here you go.

Hopefully that will give you an idea of what I’m up against.

Back in Coupeville, above the Wharf, I spotted these tiny blue flowers which I think are a weed and thought they contrasted nicely with the red wharf building.

Right at the beginning of the ramp to the wharf is a sign from last weekends MusselFest. I cleared out the holes so you can put your face in there like I did with the top one.

One of Coupeville’s historic places got a new sign last week. It’s the “Col. Granville and Henrietta Haller house” built in 1866. It’s not open to the public yet but they are raising money to make it so everyone can enjoy it. I really am looking forward to that.

Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for walking with me this morning, I’ve really been missing our daily walks.

ONE DOOR AND NOTHING MORE

I’ll let you in on a little secret. While I’m on my morning walks I try to think of a title for my blog based on a photo or series of photos I’ve taken. This morning it was pretty dark and there weren’t a lot of photo opportunities. This door caught my attention and thought I’d probably not find anything else of interest, hence “One Door and Nothing More”. I don’t know if I would trick-or-treat at this house, especially if it were dark out.

But I did find a couple more interesting things to record.

A definite sign of changing seasons is when the mooring bouy’s are brought to the dock. These are mooring bouy’s for travelers who boat to Coupeville for a visit and like “swinging on a hook”, so to speak. The winter storms generally include lots of wind and while we still have boaters visit they generally tie to the dock.

Finally another Haunting of Coupeville decoration. This one is at the old “Haller House“. If you’re interested in some good history of Coupeville and the Haller House check out the story HERE.

I hope you have a grand week and come walk with me on the days it doesn’t rain. I don’t like walking in the rain and neither does my camera!
