HAPPY NEW YEAR – January 2, 2017

Happy New Year to all my friends. After a rather long hiatus I’m back! I guess I should also wish you a happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

I spent the summer designing and building, from scratch, a 5′ X 10′ teardrop camping trailer. It’s about 95% complete but the cold weather has stifled my activities on it. I’ll finish it up and post pictures in early spring. For right now this is a sneak peak from inside the portable garage.

In the meantime I thought I’d start the year out right with a little walk around my wee village of Coupeville. It was cold and still fairly dark when I walked so the photos aren’t great but they should give you and idea of how things are looking around town.

First of all the dock to the wharf, as well as a lot of the town, is still lit up with Christmas lights.

There were two sailboats docked at the wharf with Mt. Baker in the background atĀ first light. This was taken around 8:30am.

The little town park is still decorated from Christmas and I thought the kids playing in the Christmas lights was nice. Normally they are basking in the summer sun with the boy dumping water on his head from the bucket. The Admiralty Inn is in the background.

It’s hard to get good photos in poor light without a tripod but I hope you enjoyed our walk just the same. I’ll try to do a lot better this year and spend more time with you. Have a great year ahead!
