DARK WHARF – February 2, 2016

Hi fellow walkers and welcome to my first blog of February 2016. What I need to know is where the heck did January go?

The daylight hours are getting noticeably longer but when the clouds are overhead all bets are off.

Today was one of those days. I left the house a little early and there were lots of clouds but I was hopeful the they’d break up and provide some beautiful morning sun but that didn’t happen. Instead I took a couple of dark photos of the Coupeville Wharf. While they aren’t great I did find them interesting.

This one was taken as I was approaching the wharf. What looks like blue sky is just lighter clouds behind the dark ones.

When I was up on the bluff, west of the wharf, I spotted Mt. Baker peaking through the clouds across Penn Cove with the wharf in the foreground. It’s dark but I like it!

Hopefully we’ll get in lots of walks this month but it’s still winter in the Seattle area and that always means “Rain”! Have a great month ahead.

WET BLANKET- January 11, 2016

What a way to start the week. When I first got up the stars were shinning bright but by the time I got ready and walked out the door the clouds had rolled in overhead.

I walked a little over a half mile and it started to rain, damn! It was like a “wet blanket” was thrown over me, hence the title of this post.

Here’s the “wet blanket” as it progressed eastward toward the mainland and Mt. Baker.

I turned around and beat feet for home. It wasn’t much of a walk but I wasn’t prepared for rain and I really hate getting my camera wet.

So thanks for sprinting along on my short walk today and I guess we’ll see what tomorrow brings. No matter what, have a great week!
