The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!

One of my favorite things about living in Renton is seeing the salmon return to the Cedar River each fall. After spending several years in the Pacific Ocean they return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn. Coho, Chinook and Sockeye… Continue Reading “The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!”

On a Ferry from Bremerton – the Ride’s the Thing

While it’s true that Washington State Ferries – the largest ferry system in the USA – provide much needed transportation on Puget Sound – sometimes the ride’s the thing. We drove to Bremerton over the weekend to look at a camper (don’t laugh but… Continue Reading “On a Ferry from Bremerton – the Ride’s the Thing”

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”

Up in a Redwood Tree

Only the Best Clouds in Seattle

Did you know that Seattle is the cloudiest city in the country? Not the rainiest city no, but often ranked #1 for days with heavy cloud cover. Suffice it to say, I’ve seen a lot of cloudy days in my life. And many of… Continue Reading “Only the Best Clouds in Seattle”

I went along to walk the beachfront and take pictures. I’d just left him fishing when… Continue Reading “A Whale Sighting and Talking Crow at Seattle’s Lincoln Park”

Magnificent Views Sailing From Seattle

One year ago today we returned to Seattle from our second cruise. We’d left the Emerald City seven days before under cloudy skies fretting about the weather. Why had we booked so late? The answer was two-fold. First, to celebrate our anniversary. Second, it… Continue Reading “Magnificent Views Sailing From Seattle”

Perspective – Under a Western Red Cedar

After bemoaning our lack of summer in the Pacific Northwest, a day showed up to prove me wrong. Cool yes, but fresh and bright with sunshine, the only clouds in the sky showcasing the brilliant blue behind. To enjoy the day we went to… Continue Reading “Perspective – Under a Western Red Cedar”

Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park

In my last post I told you about the rain barrels in our backyard. To get the second one we went to Sand Point, an old naval base on the shores of Lake Washington, now mostly owned and used by the City of Seattle. … Continue Reading “Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park”
