It was warmer this morning but really cloudy, almost looked like it could snow. I spotted more Christmas decorations including Cook’s Corner Park, which is where the town celebrates the lighting of the town Christmas tree even though it’s a big flag pole with a bunch of lights on it.
One of my favorite historic homes was lighted as well.
The “mussel men” were out on the mussel rafts harvesting their catch and I thought even their boat lights looked festive. They probably wouldn’t agree 🙂
And here they are, the “Snowmen/Snow-women of Coupeville”. This is just a sample I put together, there has to be over a hundred around town.
Bundle up, in case you haven’t noticed it’s cold out there!
I finally had a nice rain-free walk this morning. I decided to walk out of town west on Madrona along the Penn Cove Mussel Farm. They were just getting started harvesting their catch for the day.
Here’s one of the harvesters waiting to be put into service.
Here’s another harvester heading out to the platforms that the mussels hang from.
Here they are out on the raft getting ready to pull in the mussels.
Back in town, please tell me these aren’t “Christmas” lights that were strung and lighted this morning.
The new surfacing project on Coveland Street appears to be half over.
The view from the wharf was particularly beautiful this morning.
And finally, I saw this cat sitting on my neighbors porch looking particularly “Halloween”. He also looked like he didn’t enjoy having his picture taken.
Have a great weekend and I’ll catch up with you again next weekend.
