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.

From One Island to Another

fhl-mapThe question was raised, if one lives in paradise, where does one go on vacation?  The answer to that is quite easy!  One goes to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington state!  I shall be flying out on Saturday evening — our own dear Thom is taking me to the airport.  For a peek at where I am going — and where Amoeba already is — check out the Friday Harbor webcam.

Some of you will remember Amoeba and I began our lives together just two years ago at FHL.  Here are the links to a few posts from that time — check them out for photos and fun (if nothing else it will make you really appreciate my new camera!):

Together at Last!
