WELCOME OCTOBER – October 2, 2017

Boy, it’s hard to believe October is here already, what happened to September?

This morning’s walk was really pretty although there were lots of clouds in the sky.

Every year the town of Coupeville celebrates the Halloween season with the “Haunting of Coupeville” which includes the witch contest. Businesses around town compete for having the best witch display.

I saw my first entry this morning at the Penn Cove Gallery. It’s the Tin Man walking the “yellow brick road”. The sign says: “Off to see the Wizard of Art”.

I hadn’t seen any white deer for a while but this morning this one posed very nicely for me.

Out on the Coupeville Wharf “Frank”, the great blue heron, was posing pretty for yet another cameo.

Finally, this shot, from the Coupeville Wharf of the Coupeville waterfront with the pink clouds, really caught my eye.

There, that should get your week going. I hope you enjoyed the walk and look forward to more as the week goes along.

YESTERDAY’S NEWS

This mornings photos are brought to you from yesterday’s walk with my sister Diane. We have a full day on our plate and I won’t be walking, at least not around Coupeville so, as I mentioned yesterday, I have more to share.

Out on Ebey Prairie the squash and pumpkins are ready to be harvested. My brother Ron, of Walking Fort Bragg fame, asked a good question, “How do pumpkin’s know to turn orange just in time for Halloween?” Coincidence, I think not.

Of course some still have a long way to go before they become Halloween material. But I really liked this flower.

I really like the way Sherman’s Pioneer Produce advertises the fact that they have pumpkins for sale. They paint these hay-rounds every year and place them in a field leading to their farm.

And finally one more scarecrow we found on Front Street at the Penn Cove Gallery. Who knew scarecrows could be artistic?

With that I wish you a great day ahead and I’ll be back walking and gawking tomorrow. Please join me if you can and invite your friends along as well.
