We saw torrential downpours on the first day of winter here in the Pacific Northwest. Those further north enjoyed the first snow though none of it made it to the ground at my house.
But yesterday dawned clear and cold and temperatures rose during the day. This was the view from Ivars at Coulon Park where we had fish and chips for lunch.
On our walk afterwards we saw a bald eagle doing the same – having lunch that is – fish only without the chips.
This morning also dawned clear and cold and I noticed a lovely sunrise happening.
While I stood on my deck I heard the chatter of a hummingbird in the tree nearby.
It was a beautiful start to the day reminding me that after a storm the sun also rises.
