Whatcom Museum...

I've been working on something a little different lately. This is the
Whatcom Museum in Bellingham. It is a beautiful building itself,
but looked especially beautiful with these azaleas blooming
below it, and I processed the photo to have a warm vintage feel.
 I'm happy with how it turned out.

An afternoon on Lummi Island...

We headed over to Lummi Island this past weekend for some lunch and
some time on the beach. We found our usual lunch spot closed, so
tried the only other restaurant on the Island. We had a great lunch and
were lucky to discover this beautiful mural painted on the outside of the

After lunch we went down to the beach. To get to the beach you have to go
down a short path through the woods, where we discovered a Labyrinth someone had
made. The path to the middle of the Labyrinth was lined with beach stones,
and there was a beautiful offering in the center.

It was a sunny day when we headed out, but when we got to the beach
we could see what was coming. I think we had about forty-five minutes before
the raindrops started. We hopped in the car and caught the next ferry for home.
Although our adventure was somewhat shortened, we still had a good
time and I always enjoy visiting the Island.

A Palm Frond...


I got this Palm frond from the florist the other day, and I had a lot of
fun playing with it. I can't decide which image I like the best.

A Hike in the Clouds...

We went for a hike in the Olympic National Park at Deer Park last August.
The wildflowers were in full bloom and every once in a while the clouds
would clear enough for us to catch a glimpse of the surrounding
mountains. It was absolutely breathtaking!

A Day in Newport, Oregon on the Oregon Coast...

My daughter's and I recently spent a long weekend on the Oregon Coast.
We spent one of our days in Newport and visited the Yaquina Head
Lighthouse at sunset. The weather was wonderful and we had a great
time being together.

A Day At The Beach...

We recently spent a wonderful week on the east coast. The weather was
fabulous and the ocean was warm. Definitely the highlight of the trip, was
the time spent on the beach.

Whatcom Falls Park

We took a walk through Whatcom Falls Park this past
weekend. It was a clear and sunny day, but very cold. I
found myself looking up to the sky. It was a beautiful color
and the tree silhouettes were amazing. I feel fortunate to
live so close to such a beautiful place.
