March 30 at Green Lake

Today's Walk ...

Today's walk started about 6:30 AM and ended about an hour later thanks to several stops for pics.

First shot out of the car.

Today's official sunrise time = 6:55 AM
Today is the next-to-last day of my personal challenge ... walk around Green Lake daily during the month of March, take pics each day and post them here on the blog.

Had to look at this for a moment, but yes,
the rocks fit.

Looking east across the lake a few minutes before sunrise.
Perfectly clear horizon.
Those are the Cascade Mountains in the distance.

Just a couple of minutes before sunrise time.

At about the 2 mile point.

Yesterday ...

Two things about this picture ...
1. The Maersk Stralsund container ship has seen a tough winter.
Needs some serious paint work.
2. The solo sail boat provides some nice scale.

Out of the Archives ...

Reflecting back 7 years ago to 2012 ... I was walking around Green Lake and posting some photos right here on John's Island. Sound familiar? This is one of the things I love about blogging ... it's so easy to go back and take a look at days past. To me it seems easier than looking up the past on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram.

Below are 3 clips from 2012 posts ... click on the dates to see the actual posts.

Saturday's Critters
so I will do it today. :-)
Thanks to Eileen for hosting!

Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend. PS, thanks for the comment on my blog.

  2. Stunning pictures of the sunrise. My favourite time of day.

  3. Take a heart, leave a heart... I like that. :)

    It made my heart stop at first. I thought it was a memorial.

  4. I like the hearts, and your three retrospectives are lovely, too. Hard to believe that 2012 was seven years ago! :-)

  5. Once again all the pictures are beautiful. I love that calm water. Interesting to see the hearts out there, but that is a simple way to spread some love.

  6. Stunning sunrise photos, I just love seeing the dawn like that and you captured it beautifully
