Dilapidated Trucks or Reclaimed Relics?

“A building or object in a state of disrepair or ruin as a result of age or neglect.” Yes, it’s another photo challenge from Sunday Stills and I didn’t plan on participating this week as I couldn’t find anything dilapidated. That is, until I… Continue Reading “Dilapidated Trucks or Reclaimed Relics?”

A Fall Hike at Seattle’s Lincoln Park, Complete with Wildlife

Last week we took our first fall hike at Seattle’s Lincoln Park on a gloriously sunny day. We walked through the woods, and down to the beach on Puget Sound. We saw crows squirrels harbor seals caterpillars spider webs and the spiders who inhabit… Continue Reading “A Fall Hike at Seattle’s Lincoln Park, Complete with Wildlife”

Summer’s Last Hurrah – at the Washington State Fair

We spent the last day of summer at the fair – the one we used to call Puyallup – under sunshine, blue skies and temperatures climbing into the 80’s. Rides, food, and entertainers – we enjoyed them all – without masks and without worries… Continue Reading “Summer’s Last Hurrah – at the Washington State Fair”

Long Beach, Hot Rods, Oysterville, Cape Disappointment and Waikiki

What do these have in common? Everything! We took them all in on our recent trip to Long Beach.

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”

Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!

This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge explores the topic, so I thought I’d jump in with some vacation and staycation pictures taken during the Covid era. I’ll start with Oahu where we vacationed in February of 2020. Little did we know a month later the… Continue Reading “Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!”

Tipsoo Lake and Little Naches River

One day last week we were looking to get out of the house and chose Tipsoo Lake, where we had views of Mt. Rainier and no crowds. After an easy walk around the lake, surrounded by abundant wildflowers, we continued on over Chinook Pass… Continue Reading “Tipsoo Lake and Little Naches River”

Hiking in Paradise – Reflection Lakes, Bench Lake and Snow Lake

Our last day in Paradise had a bit of everything – mountain views, crystal clear lakes, wildflowers and wildlife. We woke up early and left the Paradise Inn for the trailhead to Bench Lake and Snow Lake, just a few miles down the road.… Continue Reading “Hiking in Paradise – Reflection Lakes, Bench Lake and Snow Lake”

Hiking in Paradise – Nisqually Vista and Myrtle Falls

We covered a lot of ground in Paradise last week for the short amount of time we spent at Mt. Rainier; just one night at Paradise Inn gave us access to many wonderful hikes without the crowds. We managed to take 3 of them… Continue Reading “Hiking in Paradise – Nisqually Vista and Myrtle Falls”
