Hood Canal, Dosewallips, and Eagles!

A few days away does wonders for the soul and so it was we found ourselves on Hood Canal last week. We stopped at Dosewallips State Park in Brinnon, next door to where my mom lived for many years. Indeed, all of this scenery… Continue Reading “Hood Canal, Dosewallips, and Eagles!”

Silence – On Hood Canal

When life is hectic and I’m looking for quiet I remember Hood Canal. Where clouds like memories rest low on the mountains and mingle with smoke from wood stoves. Where forests are fresh and damp, and oysters cover the beaches. I close my eyes… Continue Reading “Silence – On Hood Canal”

Washington DC – A Treasure Trove of Art and Museums!

I’m back with the museums and art of Washington D.C. from our trip last fall. It’s taken awhile to put it together because there are thousands (maybe millions??) of treasures to be found in the free museums of the Smithsonian and National Gallery of… Continue Reading “Washington DC – A Treasure Trove of Art and Museums!”

And with that I’m signing… Continue Reading “Berries in Ice and Season’s Greetings!”

And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park

Yesterday I shared with you the hummingbirds in my backyard; today I’ll share the eagles – okay, the eagle – that I saw last week before the weather went south. It was one of those beautiful blue-sky days that we sometimes get in Seattle… Continue Reading “And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park”

Surprise Visitors at Coulon Park – Snowbirds!

This week at Coulon Park I found two visitors among the Canada Geese. I believe they’re Snow Geese, perhaps blown off course while heading south for the winter. Or maybe they decided to relocate to Renton where temperatures are (relatively) mild year-round. I’d never… Continue Reading “Surprise Visitors at Coulon Park – Snowbirds!”

Looking for Cobalt and Finding it in Puget Sound

Who doesn’t love cobalt blue? So I went looking for some in my archives for the last color challenge of the year at Sunday Stills. That should be easy, right? The best skies are cobalt blue, and the sky is everywhere, after all! Ah,… Continue Reading “Looking for Cobalt and Finding it in Puget Sound”
