SOME FALL COLORS – October 16, 2017

I got in what might be the last walk of the week. Nothing but rain in the forecast from this evening on through the week. The weather prognosticators are even warning of potential flooding!

Not only did I get some nice fall colors we also had a nice sunrise that made for some interesting shots.

This photo was taken yesterday afternoon in front of my house. It’s our fine leaf maple and every year it seems to get more beautiful.

This one was a little closer to town center. The morning sunrise really made the colors pop!

As day break was just starting to happen I captured the town coming to life on Front Street. This is what goes on while the rest of Coupeville sleeps. The delivery trucks and garbage truck were getting the shops ready for another day of fine dining and the exploration of our many little shops.

I walked through Krueger Woods and as I was leaving the east end of the trail I snapped this one of another walker heading into the beautiful sunrise.

And finally I found another “Haunting of Coupeville” witch display. This one is at Ciao Italian Restaurant where my band, the Island Jazz Collective, plays. The Wicked Witch is wreaking havoc along with the Flying Monkeys. To my eyes this is the best display!

With that we start another week. I hope it’s good for you I’m positive it will be for me. With any luck I’ll be back tomorrow for our morning walk but it could be a washout, stay tuned.

“THE BIRDS” – October 4, 2017

Another perfect morning for a walk. I only walked two and a half miles but it was at a brisk pace. Speaking of “brisk”, it’s starting to get chilly in the mornings. The last two mornings it’s been 42 degrees F, time for a coat.

Out on the Coupeville Wharf this morning I was reminded of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds”. The birds were very active this morning and seemed to be everywhere.

As a public service I thought I’d point out another defibrillator location. There’s a new one on the front of the Knead & Feed restaurant. That makes three that I’ve found. One on the west end of Front Street on Collections Boutique building, one south of town at the Prairie Center grocery store and now this one. Coupeville is going to be a great place to have a heart attack 😉

I spotted another witch this morning. This one is presented by the Coupeville Garden Club, a great group of people that work very hard to make our little town beautiful. This one is the “Wicked Witch of the Western Weeds”.

Thanks for joining me this morning on my walk, I really like the company.
