Glimpses of Beauty

Yesterday I took two walks.  In neither walk did I go far from our apartment.  I wanted to take a few pictures to give you an idea of the beauty around me.

  1. Oh boy – what an awesome place!
    I love those trees. I doubt I have ever seen wood like that.
    That’s a phone booth?! 😀
    And I have never seen a seal out in the wild.
    Sigh.
    So beautiful!

    • Amber, alas, I am on vacation but Amoeba is not. He teaches from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and since much of it is field work he takes his lunch with him. Then he comes home for dinner and stays about an hour before returning to the lab to prep for the next day’s lessons, or he stays home and works on papers.

    • Nancy — Neither can I! Let us know which ferry you’ll be getting on so I can meet you. I don’t know if Amoeba will be in class or not (depends on what time you arrive).

  2. I am so loving sitting here and catching up with you. Thank you for being so patient with me,.
    You are in Friday Harbor? How fun! I plan on going there sometime. Hubby and I went to Orcas Island a couple of years back for our anniversary and loved it.

  3. oh and your picture of the dandelion….made me laugh because of little Kekoa over here. He loves those. He stalks up to the all secretive like and pounces while enveloping it in his mouth. Even when the seeds are freely blowing in the wind they fall victim to his terror.
