Point Hudson

We have been enjoying walking around the near vicinity at Point Hudson in Port Townsend and enjoying the wildlife. When the sun is out, we sit in our chairs with binoculars and scan for wildlife, etc. Yesterday, Regis spotted a submarine being escorted out…

Campground Flowers

The sky was overcast this morning, so I took the opportunity to get some pictures of the flowers in the campground rain garden.

Eagle at Dawn

I love to get outside just as it is getting light before the sunrise. The water is usually calm and the birds are beginning their dawn chorus. There is little to no human activity, so it is quiet. I enjoy seeing the colors in…

A Favorite Campsite

Before we left Port Angeles this morning, we went up to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park to try to get some good views/pictures of the Strait and Canada. The weather was not cooperative and the pictures weren’t good but we saw lots of…

Sunrise Over Puget Sound

Rest

We knew the weather over this weekend was supposed to be mostly rainy, so we made plans to hang out at the RV and give Dart a break from the car.  Regis and I went to the store for some supplies and left Dart…
