Dramatic sunset at the Cove

A few weeks ago the sky was incredible at sunset. The Cove in Normandy Park is at Puget Sound, so it’s salty but quiet water.

Haze reflected in pool

Some friends have a truly spectacular backyard. Their flowers are extraordinary, and that’s just the one border. But even at that special place, several smoky days ago, the hazy air was an unwelcome visitor.

Big Creek

We went camping. Even though the air was hazy with wildfire smoke, it was still beautiful out there.

Red sun

The air was awful in Seattle this week, due to wildfires in British Columbia and in Washington. This was the worst I’ve ever seen or felt it.

Great blue heron

While at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle the other day, we saw a great blue heron from pretty close by, looking for lunch. A tough job.

Orange flamingos

I know flamingos are supposed to be pink, but the ones I saw in Florida a couple of years ago seemed maybe more orange. Posting just for fun on this gray Seattle day.

Hailstorm

We were in Issaquah, WA, finishing up dinner after a day selling jewelry at Salmon Days, and the sky just opened. I have never seen a such hailstorm (with lightning! thunder!). The roar of the hail and rain, an inch of hail on the ground, and rivers of water and ice because the leaves and hail clogged all the drains. Expect the unexpected, I guess.

Three birds

A few weeks ago when the skies were so smoky from Canadian wildfires, there were some beautiful moments.
