Hood Canal, Dosewallips, and Eagles!

A few days away does wonders for the soul and so it was we found ourselves on Hood Canal last week. We stopped at Dosewallips State Park in Brinnon, next door to where my mom lived for many years. Indeed, all of this scenery… Continue Reading “Hood Canal, Dosewallips, and Eagles!”

Silence – On Hood Canal

When life is hectic and I’m looking for quiet I remember Hood Canal. Where clouds like memories rest low on the mountains and mingle with smoke from wood stoves. Where forests are fresh and damp, and oysters cover the beaches. I close my eyes… Continue Reading “Silence – On Hood Canal”

Looking for Cobalt and Finding it in Puget Sound

Who doesn’t love cobalt blue? So I went looking for some in my archives for the last color challenge of the year at Sunday Stills. That should be easy, right? The best skies are cobalt blue, and the sky is everywhere, after all! Ah,… Continue Reading “Looking for Cobalt and Finding it in Puget Sound”

Welcomed Home by Snow!

Yesterday we woke up in the Other Washington. Today we woke up at home to snow! What a difference a day makes! We had a wonderful time in Washington DC last week under mostly blue skies and sunshine and I can’t wait to share… Continue Reading “Welcomed Home by Snow!”

A Nature Walk at Flaming Geyser

Sorry but you’ll be hard pressed to find a flaming geyser – its methane source petered out years ago, though tossing a match into the well, may get you a reaction (we didn’t have any.) But who cares with so much beauty surrounding you… Continue Reading “A Nature Walk at Flaming Geyser”

Just a Walk in the Park for Squares

While in Hawaii I amassed thousands of steps on my Fitbit. It was not a chore but a delight, as walking in good weather with gorgeous scenery usually is. Since our return to Seattle, we’ve had nothing but rain. Rain, rain, and more rain.… Continue Reading “Just a Walk in the Park for Squares”

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!”
