Silly cat

Everyone knows and remembers that the Editor is a thief and will try anything once. Last night it was egg salad. Really. She begged and I let her sniff it. She usually declines. Nope, egg salad is good. It was funny when I held out the second bite on a piece celery she contemplated it, then rushed me.  I was surprised to actually get the shot.

Photography 101: Warmth

Warmth is a warm quilt on a cold night.

Especially when its hand made so it warms the soul as well as the body.

Photography 101: Landmark

The Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau Alaska is an impressive sight indeed.  Its sad to think that this amazing natural wonder is regressing faster and faster and will be gone someday.  Not in my lifetime, but someday.

It was a beautiful mile long walk out there (and back) along a trail like path that winds through plants and trees, small woodland creatures and bridges over little streams.

When you arrive at the beach you are presented with this lake that was formed by the glacier melting as well as a waterfall that must be 50+ feet high and spewing thousands of gallons of water over it and in the center of it all is the glacier itself, with smaller icebergs are scattered about.

I wish my photos could show you the incredible blue colors in the ice.  It was just amazing.  I look forward to going to Alaska again and I would love to take the 14 day cruise that goes farther north.

There is nothing like sitting with knitting in hand and cat in lap.

Wheels on the bus go round and round…

Okay, so maybe not the bus. However a new thing in Seattle is bike sharing. I finally got to see one of the bike stations and was lucky enough to grab this shot. I like the idea, I mean we have Zipcars why not bikes. This company is called Pronto Bike Sharing and it’s only been online for about a month, but aside from some helmets that have gone missing, I understand project is going very smoothly and is quite popular.
