PATCHY FOG – October 9, 2017

This morning I saw something on my walk that disturbed me but I not really sure of the emotion. I showed you this “witch” on one of my walks last week.

Apparently someone needed the wheelchair more than Dorthy did because this morning it was gone. The mixed emotion comes from the total disregard for the display but perhaps a person who really needed a wheelchair.

Through the fog I spotted the Sherman Pioneer Farm pumpkin truck advertising their pumpkins for sale. It is parked along side of the highway. You can see the Olympic Mountains in the background.

This little patch of tule fog caught my eye because of the layers and the gap in-between, very odd.

With that we start a new week. I hope you have a really good one and thanks for walking with me.

“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.

SNOW IN THEM THAR HILLS

I’m sorry to have been MIA the last few days but events and weather got in the way. But this morning I managed to get in a nice three and a half mile walk and you got to go with me!

First up, two photos of the Olympic Mountains with fresh snow on them. Mr friend “Al Thewalker” told me that there was no snow on them Wednesday when he walked around Ebey Prairie. I suppose it’s a sign of things to come.

I thought I had found all the “scarecrows” around Coupeville but discovered one more. This 3D painting was in front of the Pacific Northwest Art School. It’s the “Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.

I discovered another juxtaposition with what appears to be a rose growing on a holly bush, hum?

I’m not into “still life” photography but this setting by the Windjammer Gallery and Custom Framing really caught my attention. I’m really pleased with how it came out and hope you enjoy it as well.

With that I’ll wrap up this week and move on to the weekend. I hope you have a great weekend as well and will come walk again with me next week.

CALL THE COPS!

It looks like people are really taking “The Haunting of Coupeville” to heart. Since I’m aware of that I won’t be calling the cops despite some disturbing observations during this morning’s walk.

This was found in a neighbors yard.

Then I saw this mummy hanging in the second story window of this old home.

It would appear that this old tractor has come back to life and taken vengeance on the owner who let it rust away.

Down on Front Street the Knead and Feed Bakery/Restaurant had this nicely done witches pot that has consumed the witch.

At the entrance to the Coupeville Wharf was this display of “Magic Wishing Pumpkins”.

I touched a pumpkin, made a wish and indeed I’m having a most “Special Day” 🙂

Here’s are close-up’s of the signs:

My friend the heron is back on his perch.  I’ve decided to name this heron, I’ll call him “Frank”!

Why would you call a bird “Frank”?

Bird books have a unique way of verbalizing the sounds that birds make. For instance an Olive Sided Fly Catcher calls “Whip Three Beers”. To replicate the sound that a heron makes lower your voice and in a raspy tone call out “FRANK”! Now sit back and wait for the heron’s to flock around you 😉

So with that tale, here’s my “shot of the day”.

In the words of Forest Gump, “Have A Great Day”:
