To Coupeville and Back

Fort Casey

Being 1,800 miles away from home, Andy offered (or did I just say I was going??) to take me to his parent’s house for Mother’s Day.  After lunch and a visit with my wonderful second family, we visited Fort Casey down by the ferry terminal in Coupeville, Washington.   My belly full with a half a pound of the best filet mignon I’ve ever had, I wasn’t in the most energetic of moods. But, determined to work off the food and get a little exercise, I toughed it out and got a few photos.

I’m excited about this next weekend!  Archbishop Desmond Tutu will be in Tacoma, Washington, and I’m going to hear him speak live for the first and probably last time in my life.  It’s not likely that I’ll be able to get any photos at the event, but I’ll be spending the weekend in Seattle, so I’m hoping to fit in some good street photography.  Keeping my fingers and toes crossed, hoping for sunshine!  (A huge novelty in the Pacific Northwest these days!)

Stopping to smell the dandilions


We spotted a shipwreck on the way home. I liked the details more than the entire ship.


I almost stepped on this little guy...

  1. Good choice on the B&W conversion, the crab totally cracked me up!

    I need to make it out there this summer, on my “to do” list!

    Hope you have a blast this weekend, be safe!

  2. Your bunny photo would make a great postcard. Your building photos are interesting, but a bit scary. They are wonderful photos, nicely composed.

    I’m glad you are finally getting some weather that’s nice enough to be outside!

    I really, really like the first two shots! And, the crab… well, he seems to be yelling at you: “Hey, watch where you’re going, whydontcha?”

    Hopefully, you didn’t wear your best shoes for walking again 🙂

    1. Ha. No, I actually brough a change of shoes for this outting! I don’t need to repeat the last lesson…

    Loved the black and white. What better place to stop and smell the dandelions than Whidbey?!

    1. Thanks, Sherry. It was a great trip! 🙂
