This is a view from the Vashon Ferry dock on the north end of the island. After a rather cold (actually it’s still a bit below normal) March, at the last minute we got blasted with sunshine.
Last Sunday we took an outing to get apricots in Eastern Washington. An almost annual trek. Almost because time goes so quickly that I miss the brief period when you can get them some years.
Our little trip took us through a lot of the landscapes of Washington State. From an island in Puget Sound, through the Cascade mountains to areas of Eastern Washington that are both fertile and arid. All beautiful, but each with its own personality.
Even though it was only a day trip the summer heat led us to leave the dogs at dad’s so they could have a day on the beach instead of a hot car ride. He lives on an island.
Almost technical note: I used Lightroom 5’s Antique Black and White Preset then monkeyed with the settings. Pure greyscale looked too cold for a summer sunset.
I don’t know if they were strangers, but I found this Washington State Ferry worker walking a blind woman up the ramp to be heart warming.
