Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Places People Visit

On our road trip to Yellowstone last month we stopped by a number of places we might not otherwise visit.  In Eastern Washington, it was the tiny town of Zillah for a look at the Teapot Dome Service Station, a charming piece of Americana. …

Blue

I hope you enjoy these fanciful jellyfish as much as I did today at the Pt. Defiance Pacific Seas Aquarium.  I thought they’d be a nice fit for the Sunday Challenge at ‘Travel with Intent,’ where this week’s word prompt is Blue. ~ Susanne

Reflections on Fall

It starts with September my favorite month. I close my eyes and see the school, as sturdy as the last century. It’s 4th grade again and Miss Warner is young.  Her face and hair and dress all a golden tan; her hair short and…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange

Okay so I made it up myself. I miss the Weekly Photo Challenge and decided to do my own to carry me through the week. The word is ‘orange’ of the sweet, juicy variety and also of the capital Orange variety, for here I…

Inspiration in the Clouds

I went to the park today and found everything and everyone happy and festive in the warm sunshine.  There was the heavy scent of ripe grass evoking childhood memories and a little truck with its driver dispensing ice cream bars.  Children ran and jumped…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted Tendrils

I just returned from a few days in Long Beach on the Washington Coast (look for posts to come on that) and while I was there visited nearby Cape Disappointment. As I walked through dense coastal forest I noticed flourishing native shrubs tightly packed…

Wowed by Clouds

I went looking for the sunset last night but was wowed by the clouds instead. These were thick and buoyant like mysterious creatures under the sea. They lit up with a filter applied. This  giant was delicate with hints of pink. But became wild…

Washington My Home

My ‘place in the world’ undoubtedly starts with Seattle where I was born and raised when it was just a sleepy Boeing town. Now exploding with technology and traffic, it’s increasingly crowded and expensive to live in. No matter. What I like the most…

Mostly Cloudy Skies

Last night’s skies were mostly blue with clouds strewn about and lit from behind  as the sun began to set. The clouds gathered and thickened after sunset, saturated with lovely shades of blue, purple and lavender. This morning’s skies look like dishwater as milky…

The Ferns of Spring

I love the variety of colors found in blooming flowers and shrubs. But the ferns of spring look marvelous in green and their unfurling fronds rival any flower. I found them everywhere this week in local gardens and woods where they thrive in the…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

I love to walk in the park nearby for exercise and fresh air and I love to take pictures of the trees. Last month they appeared black and craggy, exposed like skeletons against the clouds and sky. This week you can see fresh green…
