Me and My Sony at Point Defiance!

I told you last week of my camera woes, when the zoom and controls on my Sony RX10 froze up. I thought it was the end of my favorite camera but after I replaced the battery and SD card, and restored initial settings, it’s… Continue Reading “Me and My Sony at Point Defiance!”

Nature’s Fallen at Rialto Beach

For this week’s Sunday Still’s Photo Challenge I remembered the fallen at Rialto Beach. We first discovered Rialto Beach on a trip to Olympic National Park in 2017 and it instantly became my favorite. Wild and remote, it’s littered with fallen trees and logs.… Continue Reading “Nature’s Fallen at Rialto Beach”

Incredible Landscape of the Canadian Rockies

It’s hard to find as much beauty mile for mile – or should I say kilometer for kilometer – as you will find in the Canadian Rockies. Indeed the travel bug has hit again and assuming Covid is contained and we no longer are… Continue Reading “Incredible Landscape of the Canadian Rockies”

Jurassic Hawaii

I’m feeling a bit of Covid wanderlust on this cool January day so I thought I’d take you WAY back in time to Hawaii – all the way back to Jurassic Park. You probably already know that Jurassic Park was filmed in Hawaii and… Continue Reading “Jurassic Hawaii”

Poulsbo, Port Ludlow and Hood Canal – a Trip in Glacier Blue

After returning from our getaway last week I noticed how many of my pictures were blue, blue, blue! So I thought they’d do nicely for this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge, Glacier Blue. Our destination was Port Ludlow on Puget Sound which would be… Continue Reading “Poulsbo, Port Ludlow and Hood Canal – a Trip in Glacier Blue”

Sunset in Pink

In the middle of a very rainy January we managed to find two days of good weather for an escape to Port Ludlow. The first morning I caught a hint of pink over the Olympics at sunrise, a foretaste of what would come later… Continue Reading “Sunset in Pink”

Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back

We started 2020 in the Pacific Northwest lamenting the rain and planning an escape to where the sun always shines. For us that was Oahu and the timing in February was perfect – a month later would be too late. In early March we… Continue Reading “Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back”

A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier

Every trip to Mt Rainier promises something special and so it was on Monday as we headed south to Paradise. We arrived at the Nisqually Entrance to the Park, the only one open to vehicles year-round. We had lunch at Longmire where visitors had… Continue Reading “A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier”

A Walk through Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge

Not the river itself of course but the town named after the river. Last month – before the latest round of lockdowns went into effect – we spent the night in Hood River. Getting there was the best part – traveling the Historic Columbia… Continue Reading “A Walk through Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge”

The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen

Are in Seattle – sang Perry Como. He was talking about this week. The first five days of December – rain-free, for the record books. Spent a day at Lincoln Park – where sea and sky merged blue, save for the peaks – the… Continue Reading “The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen”
