Long Beach, Hot Rods, Oysterville, Cape Disappointment and Waikiki

What do these have in common? Everything! We took them all in on our recent trip to Long Beach. No matter how many times we visit the Long Beach Peninsula on Washington’s coast, there’s always something new to discover along with the old favorites.… Continue Reading “Long Beach, Hot Rods, Oysterville, Cape Disappointment and Waikiki”

Sunset over Astoria

In my last post I shared with you an unexpected moonrise over Long Beach – in fact I posted it while still on the road. Sometimes pictures burn a hole in my pocket and demand to be shared sooner than later. 😉 The next… Continue Reading “Sunset over Astoria”

Moonrise over Long Beach

A few days getaway to Long Beach. After dinner we went to watch the sunset over the beach. Just as we were arriving we saw the clouds roll in. Nice, but not a great sunset. Then I turned and saw the moonrise over the… Continue Reading “Moonrise over Long Beach”

Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!

This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge explores the topic, so I thought I’d jump in with some vacation and staycation pictures taken during the Covid era. I’ll start with Oahu where we vacationed in February of 2020. Little did we know a month later the… Continue Reading “Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!”

Tipsoo Lake and Little Naches River

One day last week we were looking to get out of the house and chose Tipsoo Lake, where we had views of Mt. Rainier and no crowds. After an easy walk around the lake, surrounded by abundant wildflowers, we continued on over Chinook Pass… Continue Reading “Tipsoo Lake and Little Naches River”

Hiking in Paradise – Nisqually Vista and Myrtle Falls

We covered a lot of ground in Paradise last week for the short amount of time we spent at Mt. Rainier; just one night at Paradise Inn gave us access to many wonderful hikes without the crowds. We managed to take 3 of them… Continue Reading “Hiking in Paradise – Nisqually Vista and Myrtle Falls”

Waking up with the Mountain – A Night in Paradise

Location – location – location. Look closely and you’ll see the Paradise Inn where I spent the night earlier this week. Yes, I know. I’ve posted about Mt. Rainier again and again; twice in the last month alone! But this is wildflower season and… Continue Reading “Waking up with the Mountain – A Night in Paradise”

The Ultimate Road Trip – Down the Oregon Coast

My dear hubby and traveling companion mentioned recently that he’d like to take a trip down the Oregon Coast. “It’s been a while,” he said. I laughed. Actually, it hasn’t. We went twice last year; and every year before as long as I can… Continue Reading “The Ultimate Road Trip – Down the Oregon Coast”

Scenes from Hood Canal – Dosewallips, Bald Eagles, and Camp Parsons

Hood Canal is one of my favorite places in Washington, wild and beautiful and chocked full of memories. But Hood Canal is not a canal at all but a fjord, a long and narrow inlet of Puget Sound. Originally called Hood’s Channel by Royal… Continue Reading “Scenes from Hood Canal – Dosewallips, Bald Eagles, and Camp Parsons”

The Other Side of the Mountain- Sunrise and Silver Falls at Mt Rainier

It was only two weeks ago that I took you to Paradise on the south side of Mt. Rainier National Park – here – if you missed it. But that didn’t stop us from returning again, this time to Sunrise, on the east side… Continue Reading “The Other Side of the Mountain- Sunrise and Silver Falls at Mt Rainier”
