A Sunny Day in Port Townsend

If I hadn’t looked at the calendar, I would’ve been hard pressed to know whether it was Spring or Fall here in the Pacific Northwest yesterday, at least at Port Townsend where I spent the day birdwatching and enjoying 60° temperatures under brilliant skies.

Still, I was a little surprised to find these poppies shooting up a few feet from the beach:

A few miles away, at the Kah Ta Wetlands, I was treated to another golden display,

Fall Leaves

a more traditional show of Fall color.

After more than our share of rain, I wasn’t about to spend the day inside reading, especially since the rain is supposed to be back tomorrow and last until early Spring. I figured Merton’s Thoughts in Solitude might actually be complemented by a long walk on the beach.
