A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE… February 13, 2017

It was a little on the chilly side again this morning but I just bundled up and went for it. I turned around part way up the street that goes past my house and liked what I saw. I decided I’d share my neighborhood with you this morning.

The closest house on the left, with the portable garage, is our home. Inside the portable garage is the teardrop camper trailer I’m building although not a lot is going on these days because there’s just no way to heat it. The good news is warmer weather is on the way in the not too distant future.

It’s obviously trash and recycle pickup day and you can see Penn Cove in the background.

I must have several hundred photos of the Coupeville Wharf but I never get tired of it and I hope you don’t either. This morning I liked the lighting, reflection and Mt. Baker in the background. It also looks cold which is so true.

I hope that gets your week started and you’ll come back and walk with me again real soon. Enjoy your week ahead!

REFLECTION – April 9, 2015

I hope I didn’t wear you out today as we walked 6.87 miles, whew!

I went on a big loop around Ebey Prairie over to Ebey Landing. Out on the prairie I spotted these barns reflecting in a small pond of rain water.

A little further out I spotted this scarecrow family apparently guarding the chickens and turkeys.

Here’s a nice long shot of Ebey Landing and Admiralty Inlet. This is where people came to Whidbey Island in the late 1800’s arriving from the Olympic Peninsula and on south to Seattle. They would take a horse and buggy or stagecoach from the landing to Coupeville.

 Just as I was nearing the landing I spotted these two eagles way up in the top of this big tree. I don’t think I’ve ever seen two eagles sitting in a tree that close to each other.

So I’m pooped and ready to get on with the day. I hope you make a great day as well.
