Home Again, Home Again from a Wonderful Road Trip

You may have noticed I was off the grid for the last week or so – then again, maybe you didn’t as I tried to stop by occasionally when internet was available. (You wouldn’t think there’d be a problem with cell service in the… Continue Reading “Home Again, Home Again from a Wonderful Road Trip”

Hood Canal Bottoms Up at Alderbrook

Hood Canal will always be a special place to me holding childhood memories of fishing and swimming at Pleasant Harbor where my grandma ran the store and my grandpa hauled in fresh shrimp on his boat. But that was many, many, years ago in… Continue Reading “Hood Canal Bottoms Up at Alderbrook”

Snowbirds of the Skagit Valley

Last week I visited the daffodil fields of the Skagit Valley and got to see the snowbirds too!

Daffodils of the Skagit Valley

On the sunniest day of the last week of winter I made the trek to the Skagit Valley and found the fields at Roozengaarde brilliant with daffodils. I excused my husband so he wouldn’t have to endure the waiting while I wandered around taking… Continue Reading “Daffodils of the Skagit Valley”

Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks

I pretty much have to. I’m from Seattle where rain – or the threat of rain – happens often, especially November through March. And while we only get an average of 38 inches a year – far less than many other U.S. cities –… Continue Reading “Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks”

Lightroom Fun in Maui

No I’m not in Maui now – I wish I was – but I am exploring Lightroom – Adobe’s Lightroom Classic. I just finished a class on the software – virtually of course – and decided to subscribe for a year. (A 7 day… Continue Reading “Lightroom Fun in Maui”

Me and My Sony at Point Defiance!

I told you last week of my camera woes, when the zoom and controls on my Sony RX10 froze up. I thought it was the end of my favorite camera but after I replaced the battery and SD card, and restored initial settings, it’s… Continue Reading “Me and My Sony at Point Defiance!”
