Took a quick trip up to the Samish Overlook this morning. Had limited time since I didn’t want to stray too far from the car (forgot to take the Discover Pass, which is need for this park). Though there were no paragliders up there, this is one of their preferred launch points in the area. Hoping to go up there again when there are paragliders gearing up. Wonder how one finds out about that.
Finally got a decent sunset during our stay at Fort Casey on Whidbey Island. Most nights were cloudy and no sun per se, but last night the sun was out and some clouds. Then, this morning, I went back to the same location from which I took last night’s photos and took photos so the sunlight was illuminating the front of the battery. So, this image is a composition of two sets of panoramics. Love, love, love having artistic license.
Here is the sunset image by itself:
And here is the sunrise from the same location the next morning:
Wait, did this really just happen? On a regular, but unpredictable basis, we see an eagle flying over Boulevard Park. Not sure where the nest is for these visitors (whether it is the same one or a pair, who knows. Always only one at a time though). Well, this special day was lunch time. Fortunately the raptor was busy enough with this meal that we could approach at a respectable distance. Wow! What a treat. We learned later that the menu was a Barrows Goldeneye, just for a trivial piece of info.
