|Mt Rainier today ... June 24, 2022|
Looking from the waterfront trail across Elliott Bay
It's a little less than 60 miles from Seattle to Mt Rainier.

Breakfast for the Great Blue Heron
|I frequently see a Great Blue Heron in this area.|
|I stopped and watched for a few minutes.|
|Other birds and critters seem to leave them alone.|
If you enjoy critters, check out Saturday's Critters where bloggers share their posts. Thanks to Eileen for sharing and hosting.
Fuel on the way ...
|The Global Pilot is a fuel barge.|
For scale, note the humans on the front of the barge.
|The Excellence has returned to port and is about to be|
refueled. This ship is a part of the Alaska fishing fleet.
It returns here between fishing expeditions.

The high cost of fuel will be passed on to
|And here come the Police!|
|I believe the wave was for me, thank you! 😊|
|I snap a photo here when starting each walk|
mostly to record the sky conditions.
Today is the first full blue sky day in a long while.
|Don't miss the Space Needle|
and the bench which is always tempting.
|During today's walk ... very low tide. Lots of easy|
finds for the gulls.
|Looking east about half-way to my turn around spot.|
|Rare beach fun day for Seattle!|

|Rainier was pretty yesterday too! (June 23)|
|I like this pic because it nicely demonstrates SCALE.|
Cruse ship vs. motor boat.
|Had to climb a fence to snap this view of|
Expedia Group campus.
Barry Diller, billionaire behind Expedia, wanted the
new headquarters building to be shapped like a ship,
being right across from the cruise ship terminal.

Nice to see your Coastal Photos- I must admit we live in suburbia- where there isn't any coastline- so I enjoy seeing your Seattle. Regards. KEV.
Great shots of Mt. Rainier! Love the shots of the heron. Such an interesting collection of boats and ships too. Your walks always have much to offer, John.ReplyDelete
Beautiful captures of the Great Blue Heron. I like the gull photo too. The shots and views of Mt Rainier are beautiful. Great views of the skies and the ships. You do have a lovely spot for your walks. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.
It's always so nice to see your pictures, and to know what you're up to these days. Nice Rainier shots! :-)ReplyDelete
I love you mother nature and universe ❤️ReplyDelete
That building is very cool. I don't know if I could have climbed a fence to get the pic though! lol Nice to see you here today. I've missed you and our walks!ReplyDelete
What a pleasant surprise. I hadn't realized you were back on the internet. Your flower pics of June 21st were especially lovely. I always enjoy your walks, and I wish you a lovely week to come.ReplyDelete
Wow excellent photos. Nice to get a wave from the police. : )ReplyDelete
I never get tired of mount Ranier photos.ReplyDelete
That's an awesome mountain photo! Such a clear day. The water in the heron photos is also amazing.ReplyDelete

Lovely images! Especially love the breakfast capture.ReplyDelete
There's not a bad picture here, of course, but the shots of the Great Blue Heron are impressive, especially given the textured quality of the water. I also like the shot of the Glaucous-winged Gull probing the seaweed-covered rocks - such a classic image.ReplyDelete
Fabulous photographs, especially like the ones of the Great Blue Heron.
Happy Sunday Wishes, and have a good week ahead.
All the best Jan
My favorite is the duck by the water with little waves. That's not a duck, you'll probably say. 😊ReplyDelete
I answered your comment over on my post. It may be the start of a discussion...maybe.
That view of Mt Rainer is magnificent! One of my nephews climbed that mountain once and lost a few toes to frostbite afterward. Heron are fun to watch and that orange poppy is beautiful!ReplyDelete
