THIS AND THAT

Another short walk this morning I managed to find, what I feel are, some more nice photos, your impression may vary.

I couldn’t come up with a theme today because nothing similar jumped out at me. Instead I just took some random photos of things I like.

It was much different this morning as the clouds have rolled in for the Labor Day Weekend. Even with dim lighting I just couldn’t pass up yet another photo of the Coupeville Wharf.

On my way to the wharf I saw an old rusty tricycle I hadn’t noticed before. I love rusty old yard art.

I was trying to figure out what this Seagull was saying to the King Fisher. Perhaps he was telling him where the best fish are.

My neighbor John, just down the street, has all kinds of interesting things in his yard. This old saddle caught my eye. I felt it had an interesting, complementary, background as well.

That wraps up my offerings for this week. Have a wonderful holiday and I’ll see you in September!

PULLIN’ ANCHOR

Wow, what a difference a day makes. Yesterday it was misty fog and this morning nothing but sunshine. It will probably be another scorcher but it sure was a nice cool 53 degrees F for our walk.

The first thing I spotted was this standoff between a deer and a cat. As it turned out the cat ran away but they stood and stared at each other for the longest time.

Out on Ebey Prairie this barn with the tule fog caught my eye.

It looks like Colleen is at it again, getting ready to add yet another tricycle to her yard art collection. I wonder what color it will be.

Out on the wharf I caught the sun just as it was coming over the horizon.

I also spotted this early bird “Pullin’ Anchor” and heading for distant shores. I also caught the head of a small harbor seal in the background.

In town, at one of my favorite stores, Far From Normal, I spotted this new board game. We may just have to check it out.

On my final leg to home I couldn’t resist one last sunrise photo of this sailboat.

And finally some progress, yippee. Front Street has been half blocked off for almost two years due to the hillside sinking and sliding into the cove. They were concerned about it affecting the road. I guess they decided that it was no  longer a threat, at least not now and filled in the path and removed the barricades. All that was left this morning were some road cones and I suspect that once they get the path tamped down they will go away as well.

Time to turn on the fans and cool the house down. Thanks for walking with me and with any luck we’ll do it again tomorrow.

NO FOCUS

This morning I was a little distracted by the fact that today we are going to go pick up our camper and bring it home in preparation for a nice vacation in the near future. While you may not believe it walking and taking nice or interesting photos requires lots of focus and I’m not talking about the optical kind. Therefore today’s offerings are a little fragmented but I hope you like them just the same.

The first thing I spotted was this 1973 AMC Javelin SST. It has just been drug out from a back yard and is now sitting alongside the street. I hope they can save it and bring it back to original condition.

I’ve seen a lot of interesting boat trailers in my life but this one takes the cake. The boat launch is only about six blocks from this house so it might just make it there and back. “Street Legal”? I doubt it!

I’ve walked past this chair a hundred times but never saw it before. This morning it caught my eye and just needed to be recorded.

Once again I stopped at Sherman’s Pioneer Produce and was able to capture three rusty tractors in one shot.

At Rudy’s, another one of my favorite spots, I saw this tricycle delivering flowers. I just love all his two and three wheeled yard art.

And with that we start yet another week all be it a short one. Thanks for walking with me.
