IT’S A WINTER WONDER LAND

What a surprise, we have snow this morning. Unfortunately I can’t find my snow shoes so no walking.

Actually we only have about 2″ of accumulation and it will be gone by this afternoon. That’s about all the snow we ever get on the island but it’s exciting while it lasts.

So instead of talking pictures from around Coupeville I took some “snaps” from around our home, enjoy.

Close up of the “Perkin’s Street Penguins”, we live on Perkins Street.

The snow is quite wet and makes for interesting shapes on our patio.

I like the “raised rims” on our barrel garden.

The back garden wall created a “dashed” effect, nice.

This is probably as close as we’ll get to a real snowman this year.

Have a great weekend ahead and my you have a White Christmas!

FOREST FIRE?

It was a beautiful morning walk today that presented with numerous photo opportunities. It was pretty dark again when I left at 7:15 but there was a beautiful sunrise happening to the southeast. What caught my eye first was what appeared to be a “forest fire”. Of course it wasn’t, just a beautiful sunrise behind the trees.

Once I got out of the woods I was presented with a beautiful view of the Olympic Mountains.

Back over in Coupeville the wharf looked really nice it the early sun light.

While a lot of people decorate their homes for Christmas I spotted this place that had all their decorations up. Has anyone ever told you that the people here in Washington State and Coupeville have a passion for Football? Christmas lights and football, nice combination.

Back home I took this picture of the little display we have in front of our porch. We live on Perkins Street so it seemed appropriate to display the “Perkins Penguins”. Credit goes to Marilyn’s sister Susie who made it for us.

Have a great day and catch you in the morning.
