FROSTY MORNING – December 6, 2017

WOW! What a beautiful morning. These chilly mornings are providing some incredible light for photography, I love it!

On my short 2.5 mile walk I took 75 photos which I finally edited down to three. I really didn’t want to bore you with the rest. So let’s get started.

Walking down Front Street, along Penn Cove, going into town, I spotted this beautiful yacht with incredible sky and water reflections.

Yacht on Penn Cove

When I got to the Coupeville Wharf I did not walk out and around the building as I usually do, it was way too slick with the frost on the wood deck. Instead I took this nice photo.

Walking up the trail to Coupeville Town Park I looked across Penn Cove to capture this sleepy little community, in the haze, on the other side.

I hope you enjoyed the walk and these photos as much as I did. With any luck I may have some more tomorrow as our clear cool weather continues.

BOATS & MORE BOATS August 21, 2017

Happy “Eclipse Day” and a new week. This morning it was overcast and a tad foggy but it should burn off before the main event.

Since it wasn’t a great photo day I decided to show you how busy our dock is. There were a lot of boats tied up and even some rafted to one another. There were others anchored out in Penn Cove.

Here’s a long shot of the Coupeville Wharf and some of the boats. And you’ll notice that “Frank” has a little cameo in this shot.

Boats at Wharf

These two big, beautiful yachts were rafted together. I guess we know how the other half is living ๐Ÿ˜‰

Two Large Rafted Boats

I doesn’t seem to matter how big your yacht is there’s always one that’s bigger. This sailboat took up the entire fuel dock. I have no idea how long it is but it’s big and beautiful.

And there you have it, a nice start to a new week. Thanks for walking with me and remember, DO NOT look directly into the eclipse!!!

BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE

Once again I was treated to a wonderful sunrise with lots of clouds to enhance the suns beauty. I only walked a mile and half but once again found some nice things to photograph. I’m really starting to get used to my new birthday presentย (Panasonic DMC – Lumix – FZ1000) and I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

The first thing I noticed was this tunnel through these bushes with a path leading to a gate. It has nothing to do with the sunrise but…

This weather-vane with the sunrise behind it was just begging to be photographed.

Out on the Coupeville Wharf I saw this old wooden yacht tied to the dock along with a lot of other boats. It’s still boating season in Coupeville.

Once again my old friend the Heron was posing on this log with the morning sun dancing on the water.

That’s all the photos that I felt were worthy of posting but I think they are quite nice even if I do say so myself ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for walking and gawking with me!

A FAVOR PLEASE

I have a favor to ask of you before we get on with our walk. If you receive my blog in your email inbox would you please click on this LINK. It will open up my blog in your web browser. I’m trying to get an idea of how many people walk with me each day and by doing this I’ll have a better idea.

If you click on my blog link in Facebook or other ways just read on and enjoy.

Today I walked 6.4 miles from “sea to shining sea”! It was a beautiful morning with many photo ops.

To help you relate where I walk I thought I’d include a map of my route along with numbers where the photos were takes. I won’t do this every day but thought you might find it interesting to see where all you walk.

#1. I saw this great view looking over our little town and out into a mirror-like Penn Cove.

#2. This Robin looked so pretty and was singing it’s morning song. I just couldn’t resist.

#3. Out on the Ebey Prairie I decided to get artsy and take a low shot from the road over toward Port Townsend and the Olympic Mountains across Admiralty Inlet.

#4. This is Ebey Landing and it looks like someone has built a two bedroom beach house.

#5. Back toward town I ran into my two walking buddies, Al and Deborah. We don’t walk together as I walk at a different time but we cross paths and have a nice conversation most days. They claim to be in the “Coupeville Witness Protection Program” and I’m not supposed to show their pictures but, Oh Well! They are really fun people ๐Ÿ™‚

#6. I spotted this Black Bird, at least I think it’s a Black Bird and just liked the way it looked. Sometimes you need to try and get “glamor shots” of the “lesser” birds.

#7. Out on the Coupeville Wharf I noticed another interesting yacht. I know nothing about this one but it sure has interesting lines.

And back home our Crabapple is in full bloom and looking great. It’s the oldest Crabapple tree on the island and it probably won’t be with us for very many more years but for now we sure do enjoy it.

I hope you enjoyed our walk today and clicked on the link I suggested above, I really appreciate it. Have a great week ahead!
