We tried a nice Indian place for dinner. I loved it. We took the long way home and waited a half hour watching the sun set behind the Olympics. Simply gorgeous. If we waited another 20 minutes it would have been even more amazing. Stay tuned. 🙂
I’m very thrilled to see the weather forecast for the next few days. FINALLY some not-rainy days!
I’m looking forward to spending some time outside! This morning I got an early start… went for a long hike in the woods. This shot shows the just risen sun peeking through the tree trunks at the horizon.
And in the middle of my hike I came upon this tranquil view. Very pretty.
I’m headed home today, after a nice, long visit in the Pacific Northwest. I’ll share a few of the sights I took in along the way…
Roadsters on the way to the airport:
On the plane I chose a starboard window seat, expecting the normal fly by with Mount Rainier on my right. It turns out we flew south of Mount Rainier, so instead I had a view of its neighboring Cascade peaks Mount Adams (in the foreground) and Mount Hood (beyond and to the left).
The Columbia River gorge, with the Miller Island to the left, where the Deschutes River joins the Columbia, and beyond it, the Dalles, and then Mt Hood in the distance.
It rained a bit while I’ve been gone, and I could see the 630.5′ high Lake Travis through the steamy haze.
We flew over my neighborhood, and I got a shot of our house! Funny.
And Big Blue’s Austin offices… quickly being swallowed up by the Domain and other new development. Looks like noone works weekends anymore.
Home sweet home.
This afternoon we hit the Sound, again, with Fran, Art, Rebecca and Aaron. We hopped onto their boat at this beach.
Then motored over to watch a local marina’s Friday night regatta up close.
Then toodled around to see what we could see. On the left, a sea lion sunning himself on a buoy. In the background, Mt. Rainier, Blake Island and a Seattle-bound ferry.
It was beautiful out, but not necessarily warm.
And, a lovely sunset.
