The Olympic National Park is great habitat for many types of fern. One of my favorites is the Maidenhair Fern. A nice mix of delicate and elegant.
These are the Ellis and Sharon, tugboats that were on duty for the Olympia Harbor. I occasionally do colored pencil renditions of photographs. This was one that I liked particularly well. The photo (below) was taken from my kayak.
These are some pretty good skipping rocks. I have thrown a lot of them ever since I was a kid. I feel like it is helping them on their journey to the sea. But, I was never very good at getting them to skip. Not like my friend Jeff.
The beach shot was taken at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. The river riffle was taken on the North Fork Skokomish in Olympic National Park from the vehicle bridge at Staircase Campground (bridge open to Park personnel vehicles only).
Water does keep moving, heading to the sea, returning to the land.
These were both taken on the North Fork Skokomish on the southeast corner of the Olympic National Park. Different days, different sections of the river. One of my favorite hikes, regardless of time of year (although they tend to close the gate when it is really snowy).
