Port Townsend has an excellent walking/biking trail: The Larry Scott Trail. It runs from the marina downtown for 7.3 miles … they hope to connect it to the Olympic Discovery Trail, but are missing several miles of property rights. This section is near the marina and at low tide there are frequently herons that come to try and find a snack or two.
I was at Fort Worden State Park recently. There had been some snow the day before, but it was mostly gone (you can still see some left in the driftwood in the top image). I liked the water in the bottom photo and the splashes frozen in time.
Putting this blog together was the first time that I had these two images positioned like this. They are two separate image files, not just one cropped in two. But they were both taken at the same time from the same location.
Having them together creates more than the sum of the two separated.
This was taken in February at Kalaloch Beach … which means the water was cold… even if it was an early springlike day. Kids must have a different insolation value in their feet than I do.

The Towhee is one of my favorites. Glad to have a fair number of them in the yard, most of the time. I love the weird red eyes.
