MARAUDING DEER – May 22, 2018

During this morning’s walk I counted eighteen deer marauding the neighborhood. This was looking down Perkins Street just as I left my house.

A little further down the road I got up close and personal with this young buck that was just coming into his horns.

To my surprise the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain was still docked at the Coupeville Wharf. I talked to one of the crew and he said that they’d be leaving Thursday morning around 10:00.

I thought the fog made for an interesting shot of the ship and wharf.

There are still lots of pretty flowers around town and these caught my eye. They are in front of the Whidbey Health Medical Center. We’re lucky to have the hospital that serves the whole island just blocks away from our home.

That was fun, I really enjoyed your company. I’ll see you again soon.


I hope you were somewhere that you could see the Super Moon last night, it was spectacular.

What’s nice is that it was still “Super” this morning.


As the moon was setting the sun was rising. No Photoshop on this one, it was spectacular!


That wonderful golden morning light made for some great shots of the Tall Ships that are currently at the Coupeville Wharf. They are the Hawaiian Chieftain and the Lady Washington. I hope you enjoy these photos of the grand old ships.





And while I was out and about I spotted this handsome couple posing for the camera. Who knows, that might be their wedding photo 😉


Thanks for walking with me and have a wonderful week ahead!
