A River and a Lake in Chicago!

You may not think of water when you think of Chicago if you’ve never been there before, but a river and a lake were top attractions on our recent trip. That, along with many wonderful parks and museums,which I’ll save for later. Because in… Continue Reading “A River and a Lake in Chicago!”

Can you have too much Lavender?

They don’t think so in Sequim, Washington, the lavender capital of the Northwest. Every July, lavender takes center stage in this sunny town on the Olympic Peninsula, which lies within the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains. And every year for as long as… Continue Reading “Can you have too much Lavender?”

Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway – Cliffs, Overlooks, and Waterfalls From the Road

As much as I love visiting Washington’s waterfalls (the most of any state in the U.S.) there’s nothing like the string of waterfalls in Oregon, on this historic stretch of highway on the Columbia Gorge.¬†Add to that the rugged cliffs, overlooks and views of… Continue Reading “Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway – Cliffs, Overlooks, and Waterfalls From the Road”

Our Beautiful Corner of the #Earth – in Washington State

Earth Day was April 22nd, and though I’m a bit late, let’s just call it Earth Week, how about? When I think of our beautiful planet, the stage on which we live our lives, I think of all the natural beauty surrounding me in… Continue Reading “Our Beautiful Corner of the #Earth – in Washington State”

Looking for Pastels on a Rainy Day

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge, I went outside looking for pastels in the rain. My expectations weren’t high, but I managed to find some hiding midst the green – in the form of very wet periwinkle in lavender, and forget-me-nots in blue. Soon… Continue Reading “Looking for Pastels on a Rainy Day”

Bumble Bees Waking Up in the Garden

Even though spring is officially here in the Pacific Northwest, the temperatures have remained icy cold, with bouts of wind, rain and hail. Perhaps that explains why I’ve done so little in the garden. Fortunately, the azalea is in full bloom with no help… Continue Reading “Bumble Bees Waking Up in the Garden”

A Road Trip to Wenatchee with a Peek at the Peaks and Wildlife

There were two days of promised good weather, so we took advantage and headed to Wenatchee for the night. We took our favorite route over the Cascades on Highway 2, and it wasn’t long before we got a ‘peek’ at the craggy ‘peak’ of… Continue Reading “A Road Trip to Wenatchee with a Peek at the Peaks and Wildlife”

I’d Rather Be in Arizona!

Earlier this week I was loving springtime in the Pacific Northwest. I went for a walk at Coulon Park and enjoyed brilliant blues skies, happy birds, and a joyful turtle! And I thought to myself, ‘there’s nowhere else I’d rather be than here, right… Continue Reading “I’d Rather Be in Arizona!”

Washington my Home – Waterfalls from the Evergreen State

I was born and raised in Washington, and I LOVE being surrounded by green! Though officially known as the Evergreen State, you wouldn’t be wrong if you called it the Waterfall State; it has more waterfalls than any other state in the country, over… Continue Reading “Washington my Home – Waterfalls from the Evergreen State”
