A big bunch of snaps ... mostly along the waterfront taken on my daily walks ...
|This walk is also known as the Elliott Bay Trail,|
|Walking southbound, Mt Rainier ...|
in the distance (about 50 miles - 80 km)
|Somedays you can see Mt Rainier and some you can't.|
On good days the locals like to say, "The mountain is out."
The original people who lived in this area had some
interesting legends about when this mountain was visible.
|An area of sandy beach along the waterfront.|
|This year I've seen lots of bunnies.|
They are cute and most walkers seem to enjoy seeing them.
Someone spent a while here. 🕟
|If this temps you to leave a comment, please do so, but|
see if you can say something in a positive way. I say that with a smile.
|Hummingbirds love this flower.|
|The thing about this shot is the tall grass.|
It's hard to tell in this shot, but ...
I can't believe it is nearly 6 feet tall.
|Not a walk snap but a early morning|
capture from home with the last full moon shining on Puget Sound.
Closing thought ...
|Wishing all those who view my blog a happy day.|
Update ... Saturday, July 17
|Serenity of the Seas arrived this morning and docked at Pier 91.|
The "official" opening of Seattle's Cruise Season will be
Monday when this ship departs for Alaska.
|Spotted an "eagle" on this morning's walk.|
|Ovation of the Seas is also anchored out.|
It is not scheduled to begin its cruise season
until August 13th.
|The bunnies were out in force this morning.|
Update, Sunday, July 18th
|Highlight of this morning's walk.|
Great Blue Heron by water's edge.
The water was so still it was like a mirror.
Beautiful blue sky day, mid 60s, perfect!
Update, Monday, July 19
|Spotted the Great Blue Heron again on this morning's walk.|
|The mountain is out, as they say.|
Pretty good visibility this morning.
|Island Bay bulk carrier vessel arrived yesterday.|
She is delivering the ingredients for concrete.
A barge has already been brought aside for unloading.
The little red boat is the Pacific Arrow ...
Port Authority vessel.
|Another shot with Pacific Arrow.|
|Noticed this sign on Majestic Princess which is docked|
at Pier 91 Cruise Ship Terminal.
Not sure if this is new for Covid or for some other
|Pier 91 as viewed from top of the hill today.|
Majestic Princess and Nieuw Amsterdam docked.
Island Bay anchored to the left and distant.
|Island Bay is delivering material for making concrete.|
Multiple ships have done this in the past few months.
State Ferry in the background.
Update, Wednesday, July 21
|These are unusual times.|
In years past it has been rare for cruise ships to dock
overnight at the Pier 91 Terminal.
The ships take on a different kind of beauty at night.
Here is Holland America's Nieuw Amsterdam
as she looked very early this morning.
Update, Thursday, July 22
|Clouds above but clear to the south this morning.|
Good visibility for capturing a shot of Mt Rainier.
|Possibly the same Great Blue Heron I've seen in recent days.|
