March 14 at Green Lake


A pretty awesome sky right at the start of my walk today.

If you walk Green Lake, watch out for this thing.
It's a HEAVY DUTY BLOWER.
Seeing it coming, I stepped way off the path.
It blows any loose particles off the path and into
a dust cloud behind it.

While off the main path I got a good chance to snap my
favorite evergreen tree from a new angle.

By the end of the walk the sun is up, filtering through the morning
clouds. A couple of fishermen are at work. No sign of the Crew
this morning ... must be their day off.
Looking back to yesterday ...

After my early morning walk yesterday it was time for this week's special outing ... a visit to the Lemay Family Collection of vintage automobiles in Spanaway, Washington. Harold Lemay started collecting cars in the late 1960s and his collection grew to be the largest private collection of automobiles and trucks in the world.

I had been looking forward to visiting this collection ... I know at least ONE of my followers out there would enjoy this as much as I did. A fascinating way to spend the day.

My favorite in the collection ... a 1937 Cord ...
