The Sun Also Rises

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.

  1. Lovely to see a bald eagle relatively close by. We have had the rain today. It drove away the early fog, but it has been depressingly torrential. (Still raining…)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Thanks Pete. The rain Monday was heavy, pounding away all day; I think we got almost two inches if you include the snow in some places! Now we have a few days of beauty and calm- I’ll take it! Hopefully it will clear up soon where you are too! πŸ™‚

  2. I love the way you always bring out the positive in your posts! This one is especially upliftingπŸ˜€ And of course the photography is great. Actually now that you mention it, fish and chips sounds pretty good! πŸ€”
