Junuary

Apparently, the locals call June Junuary because it is cold.  Summer weather doesn’t arrive until the end of the month.  I’m wearing my Florida winter gear while vacationing in Washington in June.

Our son and his friend are in Port Townsend until Sunday and we wanted to enjoy a a campfire together.  Last night was our last night in this campground that allows us to have a campfire.  Today we move to a new campground where we will stay for the next two weeks.  So, last evening we put on our coats and huddled around the campfire sitting as close as we dared in order to warm up.

And, while I sat on the beach in the afternoon with layers of warm clothing on, I saw someone swimming in the water.  Crazy!!!

Regis went off exploring and took a bunch of pictures yesterday.  He left the camera card on the table in the motor home.  When I saw it, I thought I forgot to put the card back in the camera, so I put it back.  Whenever I put the card back in the camera, I reformat it.  Oops!  All those pictures are gone.

Regis keeps an eye on the ship traffic.  He saw a submarine leaving Puget Sound yesterday.

I went on a separate exploration and found a White-crowned Sparrow singing his heart out.   I also saw a sea gull stalking a seal.  Every time the seal popped up, the sea gull flew over to it.  I think the seal was actively feeding and the sea gull was hoping to benefit from it.

There are lots of crows here and they search the beaches and campground for food.  They like to land on top of the motor home and run around.  It’s hilarious.  It drives Regis nuts.
