Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny, slightly nippy day. I took my camera along and this is what I recorded. This is the park at the beginning of my walk. It was recently remodeled - what a fantastic job they did! Where you see the two pillars on the left side, there is a mosaic that was completely hand laid by several local artists. It’s actually sort of a human sundial - you can stand in the center and the sun will cast your shadow on the time.
This is the view from the park - the Olympic Mountains are just under that bank of clouds in the distance.
Below are pictures from the mosaic sundial. This is the center - the earth surrounded by sailing rope. Since we are a seafairing community, the entire mosaic is entirely dedicated to this.
Here is the North Wind.
A local Lighthouse below.
A ferry - a means of travel we cannot live without in the Pacific Northwest.
A tall sailing ship.
Cargo ships frequently pass by.
Captain George Vancouver made a historic landing in his ship at the present day site of the park in 1792.
A tug boat.
One of the creatures of the depths!
Eagles, osprey and hawks are so common now that you will most likely see one fly overhead on any given day. One day I watched transfixed as several eagles flew over me!
