Hike to Magnificent Second Beach

I don’t use the word ‘magnificent’ lightly. Bob had heard of Second Beach for many years but whenever we were in the area the parking lot was already full so we’d pass on by to the next beach. And let me say you don’t… Continue Reading “Hike to Magnificent Second Beach”

Outdoors in the Pacific Northwest

Last week we enjoyed the great outdoors on our trip to Oregon where we found giant bubbles at Seaside, took a cool walk at Cannon Beach and visited Herman the Sturgeon at the Bonneville Fishery. Herman is over 10 feet long and 80 years… Continue Reading “Outdoors in the Pacific Northwest”

A Northwest Hike to Barclay Lake

Last week during the heatwave we decided to escape to Barclay Lake, a hike my husband had wanted to take every time we crossed the Cascades. We turned off Highway 2 at Baring onto a one lane road full of potholes, making for a… Continue Reading “A Northwest Hike to Barclay Lake”

Bicycling The Foothills Trail with a Stop by Wilkeson

Nothing takes me back to childhood more than getting on a bike. And nothing keeps me riding today more than my electric bike. That, and a good bike trail! We found one on a recent sunny day – the Foothills Trail – a 21… Continue Reading “Bicycling The Foothills Trail with a Stop by Wilkeson”

Upside Down at Nolte

Today we took advantage of a mild winter day and went for a walk at Nolte State Park where the trees reflected perfectly in Deep Lake. So perfectly in fact I thought they looked even better upside down. How about you? For Becky’s SquareUp… Continue Reading “Upside Down at Nolte”

Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air

During this strange Covid year we’ve had to be hypervigilant about the very air we breathe, wearing masks and distancing ourselves to avoid transmitting the insidious virus to each other. Thankfully we can breathe deeply in nature where no such prohibition exists. So come… Continue Reading “Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air”

Textures of Puget Sound

In response to this week’s Sunday Still’s photo challenge I went looking for textures and found them on the shores of Puget Sound. Bob wanted to practice fishing – fly fishermen are always testing new equipment and techniques – while I would wander and… Continue Reading “Textures of Puget Sound”
