Snow on theMountains

Today's post is dedicated to the beautiful place we call home.  The SBA had an early appointment in town .  When he came home he said this is the day to take our mountain photos.  We have had a sunny spell but the mountains always seem to have a few too many clouds.  This morning they were beautiful.  While we got a week of rain, the mountains got their first covering of snow.What you see in these pictures, I can see on my way to a grocery store.  We feel lucky and so blessed to live in this beautiful place.

 The Olympic Mountains!





The incredible thing about this place is that you have the sea as well as the mountains. These gulls were busy eating dead salmon that had made their trip up stream from the sound.

 The heron is hungry too.







An inlet of Puget Sound

All these were taken within 15 minutes of our house.  Have a great week!

  4. Your natural juxtaposition of ocean and mountain is the most uniquely remarkable thing about your part of the world. It is truly glorious!

  13. You and I are lucky to call the same area home. Our day today was not as pristine as yours, but I was able to catch glimpses of both the Cascades and the Olympics in their glory, albeit brief ones. The snow looks to be thickening where we just traveled through the Cascades so I am wondering how much snow we might be seeing at ground level this year!
