For Wordless Wednesday and Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week: Changing Season
I pulled in Elbe on our way home from Mount Rainier last week to let drivers in a hurry to get back to the city go past me. Since I was stopped anyway I scooched into this little quick stop turned wood carving studio that was beside the pull out to take a look.
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.
