Twilight in Idaho

The night before the eclipse there were some clouds hanging about. The sky turned this color, sort of a prelude to the celestial magic that was to occur the following morning.

Note: It took me about a dozen attempts to capture the actual color of the sky/clouds. My daughter is my witness as she was standing next to me asking: ‘Did you get it”? The pressure was on as the light was fading, to find the right camera setting.

Leaving Seattle

Over the Cascade Range and into Wenatchee, WA. Headed towards Benton City, our first stop on the way to Weiser, ID. A longtime friend of our son in law has a ‘cottage’ on the land that is a vineyard, which his family owned till last year when they sold and retired. Mark’s friend, Alex, decided to buy the two cottages adjacent to the vineyard to live in and rent out. Amazing place, as you will see in following posts.

We followed this older ‘ship’ for a few miles on I90. On the back is the words: El Apartamento’. You never know what you are going to see on road trips. The cloud formations were interesting throughout the voyage.

Enjoy and safe travels.

Kites and Swans

Not the best of images ( two are from a point and shoot camera), but thought it would be fun to share. Seaside is one of the towns along the West Coast that is great for kite flying. There used to be a kite shop just off of the Promenade, but sadly has closed.

Renting a swan and cruising around the slough that passes through Seaside is a traditional activity for visitors.

Be safe

and have fun in your travels!

Views from the Cockpit: Pt.?

Nothing spectacular, just some shots while driving along I40 in the SW somewhere. If you’re doing a long drive in a relatively short period of time most of your sightseeing is done from the passenger or drivers seat. Armed with a Samsung point and shoot camera I fired away at the road itself, at times.
