AUTUMN AT ITS BEST – October 30, 2017

I’d like to remind you that if you are reading this on Facebook, please click on the link to see all the photos, I got some good ones today, thanks and enjoy.

It was a beautiful morning around Coupeville and a great day for a long walk. But before I get into that I wanted to share a few photos of our “Torchlight Parade” on Saturday. While there were no torches or floats there was a rather large army of crumb crunchers. As the costumed kids walked down Front Street the local merchants handed out treats. Here’s a shot of the arriving mob lead by the high school cheer squad and fire truck.

Now on to my walk. These red, fall, trees were unbelievable in the morning sunlight.

The Sherman Prairie Produce farm had this huge display of pumpkins. A nice contrast against the red barn.

This big buck scared me as I didn’t see him until I was right next to him. This was right in front of the hospital.

And now for my “Phantastic Photo of the Day”. I actually took this Saturday afternoon on my way home from the parade. I don’t get many photos late in the day but I’m glad I got the opportunity to capture it. We call that beach house the “Popeye House” because it looks like a place where Popeye would live. Mount Baker is lit by the setting sun.

I hope you have a fantastic week as we wrap up October. Thanks for spending the time with me.

BIG TREE

I’m sorry we haven’t walked much this week. Tuesday Marilyn and I had appointments on the mainland so that precluded the walk. Wednesday and Thursday it was raining and I was a woos! While I’m not crazy about walking in the rain I’m even less enthusiastic about trying to take pictures in the rain. But today the skies cleared and I had a nice walk out to the Ebey Prairie and back.

Before I share today’s photos I though I’d share a couple from yesterday. In the afternoon we had a real “Frog Strangler” come through right at sunset. That created a really nice rainbow similar to one that I shared a couple of weeks ago.

Once the rain stopped the sunlight on the clouds just got better and better. Here’s what it looked like from my front porch.

This morning as I left the house I couldn’t help but notice the moon. It’s no longer a “Blood Moon” but instead a “Blue Moon”.

Out on the prairie this big tree caught my eye. I thought the silhouette against the blue sky was stunning.

With that I’ll wrap up our week and say “Thank you once again for walking with me”. Have a great weekend!
