Peace

First day back at school – no students, yet – just a day to get ready for the new year – a day I spend inside doing inside-stuff. And at the end of the day the blue sky calls to me and I head for the sunshine and fresh air in Bellingham to soak up the peace and joy…

I saw a woman sitting on the grass at the edge of the bay – she had a fabulous hat shielding her face – and her whole posture said “peace” to me. I had to take a photo. Later I ran into her on the trail and showed her the picture I’d taken of her. I told her how much I enjoyed her hat. I learned Christen is a blogger, too! Her blog can be found here.

Looking north from Bellingham, Washington, the Canadian Coastals have been spectacular this week…

“Well, you don’t see THIS every day…”

Seen in Bellingham today: A man taking his truck for a spin; Brian in his kilt, passing another man in a kilt; a heron and cormorant hanging out together on the posts in Boulevard Park.
