Sunrise and Sunset at Turtle Bay

One of the highlights of any trip to Hawaii is watching the sunset over the Pacific, or depending on where you’re staying, sunrise. Rarely do you get to enjoy both at the same location. But on our recent trip to Hawaii, we spent half… Continue Reading “Sunrise and Sunset at Turtle Bay”

Sunset over Astoria

In my last post I shared with you an unexpected moonrise over Long Beach – in fact I posted it while still on the road. Sometimes pictures burn a hole in my pocket and demand to be shared sooner than later. 😉 The next… Continue Reading “Sunset over Astoria”

Moonrise over Long Beach

A few days getaway to Long Beach. After dinner we went to watch the sunset over the beach. Just as we were arriving we saw the clouds roll in. Nice, but not a great sunset. Then I turned and saw the moonrise over the… Continue Reading “Moonrise over Long Beach”

Pretty Clouds at Sunset and More Rain in the Forecast

No, it’s not my imagination – we’ve had record amounts of rain here in the Pacific Northwest. Seems like I say that every year. But according to the Seattle Times, “With 18.91 inches of rain recorded at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport between Sept. 1 and… Continue Reading “Pretty Clouds at Sunset and More Rain in the Forecast”

Ruby Red Fall

Fall is full of glorious red in the leaves in the salmon that return to spawn in last night’s sunset. Sharing with Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. ~ Susanne

Cruising the West Coast to San Francisco – Rainy Day Armchair Travel

Two years ago we took a cruise from Seattle down the West Coast with no masks, no vaccines, and of course – no covid! Those were days of carefree travel and I can’t wait until they return! But until then I thought I’d revisit… Continue Reading “Cruising the West Coast to San Francisco – Rainy Day Armchair Travel”
