A Fox Sparrow

The only calendar I need is just outside my window. With eyes to see and ears to hear, nature keeps me posted.

Full Moon over Mt. Rainier

The full moon in October is called the Hunters Moon, well actually there are alot of names for it. This is the picture I saw from one city and did not have my camera, so on Wednesday evening I took the mountain picture, had to drive down the road to get the moon and then photo-shopped them together. I thought it came out pretty good. I know that the moon looks to big, but it really was that close on Tuesday. Click on photo to see it bigger.

Environmental Blogging Day,

In 1965 there were no more Humpback whales in the PNW waters. Whaling had taken them all. Now 42 years later, we are fortunate to see them again in our waters. We can only hope that we will see them till the day we die.

This year at Damen Pt, Ocean Shores this small humpback was feeding right next to the shore. We were overwelmed. And it was the first time I had ever seen a Humpback.

View from the side of the road

And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams,
Are where thy dark eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleams
In what ethereal dances
By what eternal streams.

E.A. Poe, To One in Paradise
