Fall Color at Stevens Pass and Tumwater Canyon

Earlier this week we took a little road trip to Wenatchee to celebrate our 39th Anniversary. Yes, it’s been a wonderful THIRTY-NINE YEARS, a funny number that begs to usher in FORTY! We went via Highway 2 to see some of the best fall… Continue Reading “Fall Color at Stevens Pass and Tumwater Canyon”

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”

Sun Setting on Summer

The long and busy days of summer are waning and fall is in the air. Smoky skies have cleared and last week’s orange sun has returned to normal. Still no rain but that will come. ~ Susanne

The Dahlia and the Hummer

I’ve been watching a new dahlia in my garden open up this week. It’s still not fully open – but this little hummer didn’t seem to mind. Sharing with Cee’s Flower of the Day. ~ Susanne

A Magical Walk in the Woods

You never know what you’ll find on a walk in the woods. But in the Pacific Northwest you’ll see douglas fir trees accented with vine maples. And if you’re lucky you’ll see a stream with waterfalls and pools, like we did at Whatcom Falls… Continue Reading “A Magical Walk in the Woods”

A Northwest Hike to Barclay Lake

Last week during the heatwave we decided to escape to Barclay Lake, a hike my husband had wanted to take every time we crossed the Cascades. We turned off Highway 2 at Baring onto a one lane road full of potholes, making for a… Continue Reading “A Northwest Hike to Barclay Lake”

After the Rain

After last week’s heat wave, Juneuary returned to the Pacific Northwest bringing cold, wet, windy, winterlike weather. But after a few days of torrential rainfall, the sun reappeared yesterday along with some magnificent clouds. The air has been washed fresh and clean, new plants… Continue Reading “After the Rain”

Happy Cats and Birds in the Garden

We must have brought the good weather back from California as we’ve had blue skies and sunshine all week here in the Northwest. In fact, we’ve had record breaking temperatures with Seattle reaching 80 degrees yesterday. I’ll take it. It would have been hard… Continue Reading “Happy Cats and Birds in the Garden”
