PARADISE DAY – May 14, 2018

Just another beautiful day in paradise! This morning’s walk was around Coupeville where I always see wonderful things. I hope you enjoy the walk today.

First stop an immature Bald Eagle. It’s not a very good photo but it sure was beautiful sitting high atop that tree.

A little further down Front Street I spotted this great reflection shot of an anchored sailboat resting in Penn Cove.

This time of year the flowers are blooming and the rhododendrons are everywhere. These are beside the United Methodist Church. The church was built around 1900 after the first one burned to the ground. Here’s the history of our Methodist Church.

This time of year the deer are having fawns and need a lot to eat, no matter what it takes. I caught this deer pulling down and munching on the leaves of a tree branch.

I hope you enjoyed that little walk, I sure did. I hope to walk with you again real soon!

GTE

We are into a stretch of weather that is just wonderful. It was 52 F when I went out the door at 5:45am and by the time I got home an hour later it was 60 F, perfect!

When’s the last time you heard the initials “GTE”? Probably June 30th 2000, that’s when they merged with Bell Atlantic and became Verizon. Despite that fact I noticed a pay phone that I walk by almost every day. To my surprise the sign says “GTE”. I really doubt that’s the case but I did find it interesting.

On my way to Ebey Prairie I couldn’t help but notice the sign at the Coupeville Elementary School. I think maybe the person who put the sign together may have had some help from the kindergartner’s they are talking about. While it’s cute it doesn’t sent a very good example.

The Olympic Mountains were being kissed by the morning sun so I just had to take this panorama photo. If you click on it you’ll get a nice big view of it.

This crop is almost ready to harvest. I’m not sure what it is but it sort of looks like wheat but I don’t believe it is.

And this field was freshly mowed but again I’m not sure what it is. I grew up on a farm in Nebraska where we mostly had corn and that’s my excuse for not knowing what these crops are.

Way up on a power pole I spotted this immature Eagle. It sat still for one photo but then took off. Fortunately I was able to get one in flight as well.
