Editorial Note

Here on John's Island we should be in the middle of a series of posts about last Fall's Discovery Cruise to, among other places, the Canadian Maritime Provinces. My 5-Month "Blog Break" has made getting back in the routine a challenge. I do hope to continue with the series as we move ahead, but in the meantime, here are a few early 2020 captures I thought worth adding to the blog. Best regards from Seattle.


  1. Thank you for these lovely shots, John. I am also struggling to find the blogging routine that is fun for me and doesn't feel like a chore. Take your time, but whenever you show up in my news feed is a good day for me :-)

  2. You live in a very scenic area and have taken lots of good photos

  3. That snow capped mountain is an amazing sight. Keep on sharing the beauty you see.

  4. Underbara och dramatiska bilder John! Du befinner dig på en plats där naturen har mycket att erbjuda för den som vill se. Bilden på det snötäckta Olympic Mountains där solen träffar topparna medan resten av berget befinner sig i skugga ger spännande kontraster.
