Well “Crap”! My hip has been bothering me lately and this morning it finally shut me down a little. I only walked about six blocks before the pain became too much. But being the eternal optimist I turned “Lemons into Lemonade” 🙂
I decided to see what all I could find that’s “camera worthy” within just a few blocks of my home. Below are the results of that effort.
The first thing I saw as I reached the top of Perkins Street were two deer staring as intently at me as I was at them.
On 6th Street I saw a row of faux birdhouses lining the top of this arbor. At first I thought it might be a replica of Front Street but nope, just a bunch of neat birdhouses.
Over on Gould Street I thought I was in a snowball fight with this Snowball Tree.
At the end of Front Street there is a nice bench and a historic plaque talking about the discovery of Penn Cove in 1792, sixty-one years before Coupeville was founded.
Down at Captain Thomas A. Coupe Park I just couldn’t resist yet another photo of the Coupeville Wharf in the morning sunshine.
At the entrance to Captain Thomas A. Coupe Park is a nice garden that is maintained by the Coupeville Garden Club. At the moment the most prominent flowers that are blooming are the Iris.
Hopefully my walks will get longer soon but until then it appears that there is plenty to see close to home. Thanks for hobbling along with me 🙂
