Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope everyone had a lovely day with friends or family and lots of turkey. I arrived in Mukilteo a bit early so was able to spend about 45 minutes at the park before joining extended family at Arnie’s restaurant for our annual no-dishes-to-wash feast.

The timing was perfect because it had rained earlier, and started to rain again while we were eating, but it was relatively pleasant at the beach when I was there. Some seals were frolicking close to shore as I was parking the car, but by the time I got my bag out and the long lens on the camera they’d disappeared. Bummer! I had to console myself with taking a few dozen pics of my favorite form of public transportation. CBWC.


Perfect Day

I took this photo at Mukilteo Lighthouse Park on Thanksgiving 2015. It was perfect timing on a perfect day. The ferry was arriving at the dock with Mt. Baker in the background.

After enjoying the park for about an hour I had dinner at Arnie’s with several family members. After dinner we spent some time visiting at my cousin’s condo she’d recently purchased in Mukilteo. Then I drove home at twilight, with the sky and mountains so breathtakingly beautiful during the blue hour.
