Lookie-Loo's (sp?)

Everyone was looking at the full moon this morning. And the mountains. And the water. And the sunrise. It doesn't often get more breathtaking than this. Since I didn't have a great camera with me, I decided to take photos of the people taking photos. The good shots are up on the West Seattle Blog and the Beach Drive Blog.

Even the TV trucks were down here.

Happy New Year - 2008

Better late than never. These photos were taken during my walk on New Year's Day.

Imagine how excited these kids were as they watched the Harley's pass by. I bet they couldn't wait until they were old enough to trade those tricycles in for motorcycles.

I love to swim laps, but this is ridiculous. I thought the New Year's Day Polar Bears just ran into the Sound and then ran out. So who were these guys swimming from Duwamish Head down to Alki Beach? And there wasn't a "safety" rowboat in sight in case someone got a cramp. Way too macho in my humble opinion.

Tree Full of Robins

One thing I really miss during the winter months is the sound of exuberantly singing birds. I always note the coming of Spring when I hear the happy chirping of birds welcoming the sunrise.

So imagine my surprise when I discovered that this perfectly normal looking winter tree was actually full of noisy robins. I think they were having some kind of party and they didn't like me hanging around. So I left.
