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...

Happy New Year!

The journey through Coupeville, Washington ends with this unidentified object.  It appeared to be combination of crab and  beach stones, fused together to create some sort of festive pier decoration.   It was so ugly, it was beautiful!

I started my photo blog last March on Blogspot, which was dedicated to images from my cell phone.  The daily photo challenged me to look at the world in new and unique ways.   By August, though, the cell phone idea got old, and I decided to move over to WordPress  and revamp the blog concept to include images from not only my camera phone, but my Nikon point and shoot, and the borrowed Canon 40d.   I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting a lot of talented photographers and writers through this forum, which has made the last half of 2010 very rewarding.   I’d like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  May you be blessed with new vision and sense of excitement about what 2011 holds!
