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”

A Journey to See the Bald Eagles of the Skagit River

It was fitting that we should travel north to the Skagit River yesterday to see the bald eagles that come to feed on the salmon. No rain was in the forecast and the drive itself is marvelous with views of the jagged North Cascades,… Continue Reading “A Journey to See the Bald Eagles of the Skagit River”

The answer was two-fold. First, to celebrate our anniversary. Second, it… Continue Reading “Magnificent Views Sailing From Seattle”

Surprised by Salmon on the Green River

Through the woods and down to the Green River we went, enjoying the wet and colorful… Continue Reading “Surprised by Salmon on the Green River”

A Hike to the Waterfall in the Green River Gorge!

We finally did it – took the trail down to the Green River Gorge for a close up look at the waterfall. It was a first for me though not for my husband; he spent a lot of time here in his younger days,… Continue Reading “A Hike to the Waterfall in the Green River Gorge!”
