Old window

Not sure if this is dill or fennel, growing outside the window of a house built in the 1890s in Port Townsend, WA.

Poulsbo view

At the charming town of Poulsbo, WA recently, we saw this view outside a coffee shop. I took a similar photo in 2011 but I like this one better, even if the paint shows wear.

Man at Alki Beach

At the Alki Art Fair this past weekend, a very good-looking young man posed at the water for me. Wish I’d gotten his name!

Old siding

I don’t usually post this kind of photo, but I’ll make an exception for this one. In Port Townsend, WA, we stayed at a place that was built in the 1890s. This was the corner of the garage or shed on the property. It just floats my boat.

Sunset window

The sunset in Port Townsend on Friday was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen anywhere. This was the place we were staying in, built in the 1890s.
