LABOR DAY 2014

Happy Labor Day everyone, I hope you are enjoying a nice holiday, I sure am.

I walked a little further this morning and it yielded some more nice photos, I hope you enjoy them.

The first thing I spotted was this “Practice Fence”. The person that lives here is a wood turner and while he was learning he turned many bowls. He hung his early efforts on the fence and I really like the way they look.

While I often walk Main Street it never dawned on my as to how pretty the old building are lining the street all in a row. This the the Methodist Church and the two Blue Goose Inn buildings.

The tule fog is starting to come onto the prairie and it always makes for some nice photos. It looks like the hay is all loaded in the barn for the winter ahead.

I finally got our resident “White Deer” to pose for a photo. His horns are really starting to grow.

I love this old Dodge truck that is often parked in front of the museum advertising Local Grown, a wonderful little coffee and pastry shop out on the end of the Coupeville Wharf. Not only do they have coffee and pastry but many items from local growers and artisans. If you’re ever out there say hi to William, the owner.

Have a great holiday and short week ahead!

12TH MAN

In case you were hiding under a rock yesterday the Seahawks won and are going to the Super Bowl. During my walk this morning I spotted evidence of support for the team so I’ll start with that and then end up with a few of nice photos.

The Coupeville School “Message Rock” definitely supports the team.

Just in case the 49ers were flying over Coupeville we have this to show.

And for those driving by this should get the message across.

There, that should start off you holiday week. Happy MLK Day and onward to a beautiful week.

SLIPPERY SLOPE

This morning it was quite slippery out as we had freezing fog and frost overnight. I had to be careful, especially on the hills. Downhill was the worst but I managed to stay upright for the duration.

Despite a dark slippery start it turned out to be a beautiful morning and I got lots of very nice photos for you all to enjoy.

The weather prognosticators are saying that we are in for a change. Here’s the forecast of the week.

By golly I do believe they might be right. This ominous cloud bank coming from the west caught my attention.

We did have a beautiful sunrise which set this tree ablaze.

Mt. Baker was looking spectacular with all the fresh snow piling up.
