Sunset in Pink

In the middle of a very rainy January we managed to find two days of good weather for an escape to Port Ludlow. The first morning I caught a hint of pink over the Olympics at sunrise, a foretaste of what would come later… Continue Reading “Sunset in Pink”

A Journey to See the Bald Eagles of the Skagit River

It was fitting that we should travel north to the Skagit River yesterday to see the bald eagles that come to feed on the salmon. No rain was in the forecast and the drive itself is marvelous with views of the jagged North Cascades,… Continue Reading “A Journey to See the Bald Eagles of the Skagit River”

Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back

We started 2020 in the Pacific Northwest lamenting the rain and planning an escape to where the sun always shines. For us that was Oahu and the timing in February was perfect – a month later would be too late. In early March we… Continue Reading “Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back”

A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier

Every trip to Mt Rainier promises something special and so it was on Monday as we headed south to Paradise. We arrived at the Nisqually Entrance to the Park, the only one open to vehicles year-round. We had lunch at Longmire where visitors had… Continue Reading “A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier”

A Walk through Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge

Not the river itself of course but the town named after the river. Last month – before the latest round of lockdowns went into effect – we spent the night in Hood River. Getting there was the best part – traveling the Historic Columbia… Continue Reading “A Walk through Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge”

The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen

Are in Seattle – sang Perry Como. He was talking about this week. The first five days of December – rain-free, for the record books. Spent a day at Lincoln Park – where sea and sky merged blue, save for the peaks – the… Continue Reading “The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen”

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”

Rewards of a Rainy Day Walk, Harbor Seals and a Rainbow!

So here we are – it’s fall in the Pacific Northwest and that means rain, rain, and more rain, perhaps for the next six months. Okay, not really, but it sometimes feels like that. And you can’t just stay home day after day even… Continue Reading “Rewards of a Rainy Day Walk, Harbor Seals and a Rainbow!”

The Best of Multnomah Falls

I promised I’d be back to show you Multnomah Falls, the most popular of all the waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge. It was our last stop before heading back home, and it was a perfect and rain-free fall day. At 611 feet, Multnomah Falls… Continue Reading “The Best of Multnomah Falls”

Waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge

No trip to the Columbia Gorge is complete without stopping by the many waterfalls that line the Historic Scenic Highway. Last week we traveled to Oregon and did just that – safely and before new Covid travel restrictions were put into place. The weather… Continue Reading “Waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge”
