A Few Photos From My Evening Walk

Last night I was able to head down to one of my favorite spots, period, the Edmonds waterfront. Spectacular sunset, with a lot of adoring, camera toting fans.  Noticed a bit of construction going on along Sunset Ave. Several more of the older homes there were torn down, including the foundation. Significant rebuilds. On an odd side Read More …

A Lovely Afternoon Along The Edmonds Waterfront

My wife and I spent the afternoon in one of our favorite places, the waterfront in Edmonds. Ran into many friends, had a quick lunch, popped into the ranger station at Olympic Beach. Fyi, there’s a touch there that’s stocked with local wildlife. A great place to getvsine insights into our marine life. One of Read More …

So, I’m Not A Fan Of The Bite Of Seattle, The Taste Of Edmonds, And Such

Ok, so I’m a killjoy: I’m not a fan of the Bite of Seattle nor the Taste Of Edmonds. So, I don’t truly hate them. They do create a nuisance to the neighbors, and add to the traffic misery that’s the Seattle region. But that’s really not the root of things. I remember back in Read More …

Now it’s Safeway, or Everything Changes 

A few weeks ago, one of my local grocery stores rebranded.  After Safeway and Albertsons merged a few years back, the writing was on the proverbial wall. The Safeway branded store across the street was shuttered. A few months back, I noticed the start of a remodel. While talking with friends there, I was told Read More …

A fine day on the shore 

Late morning my wife and I made our way down to our favorite beach in Edmonds. It was an exceptionally low tide, which is always a delight to explore. These tides expose much that’s hidden, leaving amazing creatures in the tide pools. Below are just a few examples of all that was there.  Normally, where Read More …

Summer Is Coming for Edmonds Own Steel Magic Northwest

This evening was Steel Magic Northwest’s “Here Comes Summer” concert, held at Edmonds Seventh Day Adventist church.  I’ve written about them before, after I saw their holiday concert. This steel drum ensemble is just amazing! Tonight’s concert was simply brilliant. An amazing amount of sound comes through these guys, and clear, crisp, wonderful sound! As Read More …

An amazing weekend. First, perfect weather. Which seems to turn off tomorrow. Giving a more divine feeling to the holiday weekend. Also, though we had plenty of activity, we were able to get quite a bit done around the house.  Saturday and Sunday were filled with concert preparation and performance in my church, Trinity Lutheran Church by Read More …

An abandoned car at Snohomish County Park (Perrinville)

This beat up hulk of a car has been abandoned off Olympic View Drive at Snohomish County Park. I’m unsure how they decided this was a good idea. But I wish to expound on the likely outcomes of this decision.  The car has been ticketed  The city will track them down, and that will be Read More …

What a lovely day!

Today was pretty delightful. First, got to sleep in…always a boon. My wife and I hit the Brook’s Tent Sale. Though I’m no longer a runner, my wife and son are. And I’m something of an avid walker, so good shoes are valuable to me. Next stop, a friend of ours, who makes killer cinnamon rolls, Read More …
