SUVA – May 4, 2015

Nothing like a perfectly sunny morning to start the week. I walked three miles and really only saw one good photo opportunity that Al-The-Walker pointed out to me.

I hadn’t seen Al in a few weeks as I’ve been getting out earlier and earlier to try and catch the sunrise. Al always leaves home at the same time.

The sunrise is now so early that unless I get up at 4:00 AM and out the door by 5:00 I won’t get any sunrise shots. So this morning I gave up, slept in a little and still had a nice walk.

The Schooner Suva is now permanently anchored in Penn Cove near the Coupeville Wharf. A campaign has been going on for a while to purchase the old yacht and keep it in Coupeville for tourists to visit and go sailing. It will be a great addition as the 1925 vessel fits right into the history of our wee town.

You can read all about the 68 foot yacht HERE and the effort to bring her to Coupeville HERE.

While we’re on the subject of boats, I spotted this “flotilla” near the Mukilteo ferry landing this weekend on my way to the mainland. I believe they were fishing for shrimp since the season opened this weekend. I’m glad I was on a ferry.

Thanks for walking with me and enjoy the week ahead!
