Birthdays


Happy Birthday to the best guy ever.  Autism does not define you my son. What I see in you is amazing love that others can not even come close to realizing in their own lives. You have no understanding of lusting for money or materialism.  You may live in a world made of your own design,  but it is better in many ways to the cruel world the rest of us live in.

I hope and pray for you and want what is always best for you. You have family all over the country and they have missed out on getting to know you.  I am grateful to the family you have in your friends. 

You are 24 years old. You have a dad and mom who will love you for as long as we are here on earth with you .  I know you love God and He will always have you until you meet Him in person . 

Friday Recovery

The sun is shining. It is back to nature for me. My backyard is stunning with birds this morning! 

My son made me smile looking at things a little different! The little mermaid float came by at Seattle’s Macy Parade. Got to love that smile!! 


Happy Weekend everyone! I am literally recovering more ways than one!! 

Official Seattle Landmark

I spent the day touching water.  It started with me fishing my car keys out of my toilet.. I know what your thinking and I will “relieve” your mind.  The water was clean. 

I 90 floating bridge is an incredible historic site in Seattle.

My second water touch was my aqua therapy appointment on Mercer Island, Washington.  It went quite well today. I have a lot of work ahead though.

This is a view under the bridge.

My third water touch was the cold waters of Lake  Washington near Interstate 90. I was able to get a bird’s eye view of  the 2nd largest floating bridge in the US. The largest is seen from afar called the 520 floating bridge. They are official Seattle landmarks. 

520 bridge is largest floating in the US


The bridge for I 90 was completed in 1940.  It is well travelled. My life and travels have taken me over these bridges over a 23 year span of living in Seattle. 

Under the belly of the bridge


traffic flowing over bridge as I took photos is light as commuters have not got off work yet.


Beautiful view of homes along the floating bridge corridors.


I found afresh seafood for lunch! now this fresh!


why not see it all? Thank you for following along my life’s adventures!

The Case Of The Missing Fish

There is a story here, but you have to think deep or perhaps very shallow. You choose. 


Life involves much contemplating. Fred the heron from the PNW is listening carefully and will make a decision soon.


Ok. I guess I didn’t get that. What did you say? I am all ears. 


Got it! Yep. Your mine. 


Dumbfounded Fred is sad. There is always next time. Well. Not always. Perhaps Fred there are bigger fish to fry. Your turn will come.  Life brings rewards at times and sometimes we are left empty handed. Fred’s face says it all. No words needed. 

Thanks from Fred for dropping by and attempting to fish with him. Wish him luck!  I think deeper waters brings a prize!

Ospreys In Action

One of my best photographs I have taken.  I am moved really about the way I caught the birds in action.  It is as if you are looking at the anatomy of the birds as they reached out toward each other. Thought provoking. 

The Next Big Thing

 New experiences open our eyes to new adventures. Yesterday was one of those days. I went to the horse races at Emerald Downs in Auburn, WA! As you can imagine, the next big thing for thoroughbred owners is to see their beauties win!  

The owner above saw his horse win its first race. I had no idea the winner belonged to him until I saw him go up to the horse. I was able to share this photo with him. 

 

 

So much excitement is noted at the races as you see these beauties go up to 40 mph on the track. 
  
The racehorse is a selective breed and amazingly majestic to view.

   

Above, you see the happy jockey who just won his race. Note his uniform. The shirt is known as silk. It is a tradition that goes back to England in the 1700’s. You can now look at him come from behind in the picture above I took! I dont know who was more excited than him other than the winners watching the race! Yes. There is betting. I am not much into that, but the fun of seeing these  beauties with your eyes is definitely a gift. I can understand how a owner would feel watching his/her baby cross the finishline.   

Enjoy a few more shots I took: 

  
Oh my! Our view of Mt. Ranier! What a way to enjoy a sunny day in the Pacific Northwest! 

   

It is something to see that dirt kicked up! Emerald Downs is enjoying their 20th year anniversary being open. Wow! 

  
I love the gray color of this majestic horse as he races to the finishline. 

  
Oh my- won by a nose!!! I caught with my Nikon!! Yay! 

Disclaimer: I am not promoting gambling at all in this post. I simply enjoyedthe gorgeous   horses. Thank you for dropping by.
