Wordle 237 - February 11 2022

 Wordle 237 3/6 ⬛🟨⬛⬛⬛ ⬛🟩🟨⬛🟨 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

Wordle is a web-based word game developed by Josh Wardle. Players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word, with feedback given for each guess in the form of colored tiles indicating when letters match or occupy the correct position. The game first appeared online last October. So far, there is only one Wordle each day. If you enjoy word puzzels this game is addictive. Today, February 11, I played Wordle (#237) and got the correct answer on the third try. The very first line above shows the "share" results.

Walk snaps ...

February 6th  9:05AM

For first time visitors:  My current challenge is to walk about 2 miles every day for a year. I started around the first of March last year, so I have about 3 more weeks to meet my goal. Yes, I've walked the walk almost every day and I've done it along Seattle's Elliott Bay Trail which goes right along the waterfront. Every walk I stop at the spot in the first picture above to snap a photo which will remind me of the sky conditions. During the winter, our days here in Seattle are short, and since I like to walk early, the darkness adds to the challenge of getting good photos. As I'm walking, I carry along my little Canon SX 730 camera to snap a few photos of things that interest me. I choose a few of the snaps to share here on the blog.

I snapped this because the water was so smooth.
This is unusual in a big body of water like Elliott Bay
which is a part of Puget Sound.

I happened upon this little critter just as it found breakfast.

I love the look of the Mallard duck.

Every morning I walk by Grain Teminal 86.
This is where grain from US Midwest is loaded on ships.
The ships are headed to the largest grain market in the
world ... Asia. I especially liked the name of this ship ...
Magic Twilight

This is the Magic Twilight being loaded with grain at
twilight.  February 8th at 7:17AM

More views of the Magic Twilight

I always enjoy the view of Mt Rainier but this snap is 
especially to capture the "linticular" clouds. Read about
them HERE on Wikipedia. The clouds are a natural
creation caused by the mountain.

I smiled when I snapped this photo. I dedicate this photo
to all those who believe governments are
 poisioning us with contrails. I just
don't think so.

Musical Interlude

I happened to discover this delightful tune on YouTube.  Enjoy! The Spinning Song by Keola Beamer.  (Ka Hikina O Ka Hau: The Coming of the Snow)

Supply Chain Notes ...

The big ships are leaving here with loads of containers
but they are not loaded to the max as was common
before the pandemic.

This CMA CGM ship could have carried quite a few
more containers on the forward part of the ship.
This view is looking from Seattle to the west,
the water is Puget Sound. The trip for the ship to
reach the Pacific Ocean will take about 4 hours. Then, 
10 to 14 days to Asia.

Amazing Eagle Video

In my September 4 post I told the story of encountering Matt and Patti along the waterfront as they were banding a Cooper's Hawk. They were kind enough to allow me to take photos to place on the blog. I continue to see Matt along the walk from time to time and we usually stop for a brief chat about what birds are being seen in the area. Matt told me about a video he had put together from still photos that tells the story of a Bald Eagle capturing a Seagull. I asked Matt if I could share this video here on the blog and his reply, "You bet John". Thank you Matt ... you take amazing photos!

Closing Shots

Especially pretty sunset February 9th  5:18PM
Looking west from Seattle to the Olympic Mountains in the far distance.

Favorite photo so far this year.

Mostly Mt Rainier

Back to Mt. Rainier 2024 ... At the entrance gate the Ranger provided a map of the Park and a sheet of info for Spring 2024.  I was careful ...
