Welp I have had quite a week and never let it be said that I am one to lie abed and neglect to explore my environs.
Of course I am utterly depleted, drained and exhausted but hey, someone has to jet about, eat seafood on other people's dime, merrily ferry-hop, gaze out from the deck of his or her room at an eagle's nest, watch the tide go in and out, and wonder...
Anyway, before I leave I wanted to post these last (many) pix. Even so, they represent but a tiny fraction of all I have seen and experienced.
|THESE WERE ALL TAKEN ON OR AROUND THE GROUNDS AT|
THE ARCHBISHOP BRUNETT RETREAT CENTER,
30 MILES SOUTH OF SEATTLE
|THESE ARE IN INVASIVE PLANT COLLOQUIALLY CALLED |
HORSE TAILS. THEY GROW IN MINIATURE STRIPED FORESTS.
|FROM THE FERNS DOWN WERE TAKEN AT DASH POINT STATE PARK,|
|TO ADD TO ONGOING |
"RANDOM LEAVES ON SIDEWALK" SERIES
|CALLING RESIDENT BOTANIST MICHAEL DEMERS. |
WHAT ARE THESE?
THEY GROW IN MARSHY AREAS AND THE BRIGHT YELLOW FLOWER
LOOKS LIKE A COBRA'S HOOD.
HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE!.
