A Walk to Dungeness Spit

Did you know that Sequim is home to the longest natural sand spit in the U.S. and one of the longest in the world? Neither did I! Until we stopped at Dungeness Spit on our recent trip to Olympic National Park. Better late than… Continue Reading “A Walk to Dungeness Spit”

Chasing The Big Trees of Olympic National Park

Did you know that Olympic National Park is home to some of the largest trees in the world? I didn’t until I found this brochure in the lobby of Lake Quinault Lodge, where we stayed on our recent trip. Of course we went chasing… Continue Reading “Chasing The Big Trees of Olympic National Park”

Looking to the Sky – The Moon from my Backyard

I’ve always enjoyed looking at the night sky. These days that mostly means watching the moon rise over my backyard where the garden shed and trees sometimes obscure the views. The results can be mysterious. You may even see the eye of God wink… Continue Reading “Looking to the Sky – The Moon from my Backyard”

Saturday evening we took a walk at Coulon despite the threat of rain. I didn’t carry my camera – I’m always slowing my poor husband down on our walks – but I did have my phone. The clouds were spectacular and of course I… Continue Reading “Rain, Clouds, and Eagles”

Wet and Green

Rain is falling and clouds are hanging low. Grass is wet, my feet are too. Young birds all aflutter at the beaver pond, follow their mamas from branch to branch waiting for food. Do they belong?  Only she knows. Water, water everywhere and all… Continue Reading “Wet and Green”

Great Blue Heron in Black and White

Earlier this week, as I stood on the shores of Lake Washington,  a Great Blue Heron swooped in and landed nearby.  It was a typical spring day in Seattle, skies cloudy and partly blue,  the lake a silvery hue. Though I didn’t shoot the… Continue Reading “Great Blue Heron in Black and White”

Water, Fire and Ice!

In celebration of Earth Day this week, I thought I’d give you a tour of water, fire and ice from my place in the world. The first picture is not my own as I have not yet scaled these heights.  Still, can you see… Continue Reading “Water, Fire and Ice!”
