I told you last week of my camera woes, when the zoom and controls on my Sony RX10 froze up. I thought it was the end of my favorite camera but after I replaced the battery and SD card, and restored initial settings, it’s back in service! Hooray!
To celebrate I took it on our drive to Point Defiance and snapped a few pictures of the grounds, gardens and wildlife.
First up is the Visitors Center, built in 1898 as a home for the Park Superintendent. I might have applied for the job myself if it meant living here.
Across the way is the Rose Garden but since it’s still asleep, I’ll show you the daffodils and hellebores coming up everywhere, a sure sign spring is on the way.
Ducks swam in the pond nearby
dwarfed by the giant Sequoia tree that stood next to it. The trees below look like miniatures
as does my husband.
Next we took the 5 mile drive through the forest and saw deer and raccoon hoping for a handout.
Who could resist that face?
Despite the sign, the raccoons managed to find some popcorn – not from us.
Point Defiance has everything including multiple gardens, forest, zoo, aquarium, waterfront, and even a fort! I’ve shared about our visits before including this blast from the past at the Rose Garden.
I’m so happy to have my camera back and it was a perfect day in the park, with the best weather we’ve had since last weekend’s snowstorm.
We’ll be back for more.
