I’m going to start posting occasional pictures of places I love. Most will be sites I regularly frequent around the Pacific Northwest, but some will highlight previous places I’ve lived or visited, including The Netherlands and Siberia.
I’m starting off with my favorite park and beach in Seattle, Discovery Park. Looking back at our pictures taken here over the years reminds me that the best outdoor toys my boys ever received were shovels.
Looking northwest across Puget Sound towards Bainbridge Island’s north end.
Driftwood lines the beach towards West Point Lighthouse, Olympic Mountains provide the backdrop.
A busy boating channel- freight ships, fishing boats and pleasure boats abound.
The splinters are worth it.
One of us looks for porpoises, orcas, eagles, osprey and harbor seals using these.
If you squint hard you might notice the Space Needle, as well as Mt. Rainier’s ghost rising above where the land hits the water. Both are visible on clear days.
