I know, too much of a good thing but I just couldn’t resist getting some more sunrise photos with this smokey inversion layer that’s going on.
While I was waiting for the sun to pop up over the Cascade Mountains I walked down to the beach and took the following photos of the pilings that hold up the Coupeville Wharf.
I move over to underneath the ramp that goes out to the wharf and thought this was kind of an interesting photo.
It wasn’t long until the sun peeked above the mountains.
I took a bunch of photos but I came back to this same spot for another one after the sun was up.
And that was that! Now the sun is really up and it’s going to be another scorcher of a day. I’ll really be glad when this hot streak is over and we get our clear skies back.
Have a great weekend and try to say cool.
I don’t know where to start! I shot 96 photos this morning and more than enough came out either really good or quite interesting. I’m not going to overload you with pictures or it would end up like my dad’s slide shows of our vacations 😉
So I’ll show you some today and more on another slow day sometime.
I walked the beach from the end of our street to the Coupeville Wharf, that’s about three-quarters of a mile. I’ll show you the wildlife today and interesting stuff later.
I first stumbled upon a Great Blue Heron and deer. I call this picture “Frank ‘n Deer”.
As I got closer the Heron decided it was time to skedaddle and took flight.
Penn Cove is often called the “Mussel Capital of the World” be cause we raise some of the best mussels in the world and they are plentiful, as this picture shows. The rock is covered with barnacles and mussels.
Mussels also like to cling to pilings. These are the pilings leading to the wharf. It looks like there are a lot of people visiting our wee town by boat. I’ll bet many of the are enjoying our mussels which are served at all the local restaurants.
On the way back home I spotted this eagle soaring through the sky. What a lovely way to start the day.
Thanks for joining me on this beautiful Monday morning. I hope you have a great week ahead and I’ll do the same.
