Yesterday was just beautiful, the sky blue, the mountains still covered with snow, and the temps warm enough to be in flip flops! We decided to go for lunch to one of our favorite waterside restaurants. We were on the deck for the first time this year! This is a town called Bremerton. There is a large Navy presence in this town. You can take a ferry from here to downtown Seattle. It is a great ride,especially in the summer.
Here is the view from our table.
This is a World War 2 Destroyer called Turner Joy. It is available for tours. The SBA has taken visitors on the tour.
This is still a view from the restaurant. They are still skiing on week-ends in the Cascades where you find many ski resorts. The mountains in this picture are the Olympics. They are much wilder because they are part of the Olympic National Park. There are very few roads in these mountains.
Here is an update on "Penny America." Now I just have to fill in the border squares and it will be back to John Foster. I want to get this done quickly. I had the test today and I do have moderate carpel tunnel so minor surgery is in my near future. I'm sure that will slow down my stitching for hopefully no more than a few weeks. I'm happy to have it done as my hand is quite a pain in the neck right now.( Actually, a pain in the hand!)
In my last post, I showed pictures of the Dragonfly garden center. Here is one of the plants that I couldn't live without. It is called Iris x pacifica "Baby Blanket". The colors are just amazing.
The picture doesn't do this plant justice. It is called Dark Chocolate Coleus. It is an annual but I plan to put it in a pot with the chartreuse sweet potato vine. It will be pretty on the deck.
Now I think you can see why I called this post a little bit of everything. I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
