My Backyard (sorta)

Yesterday I took the 10 minute walk down to Fay Bainbridge State Park, which is a waterfront sanctuary a half mile from my house. The park is touseled with the old bones of dead trees, the sand pitted with the ghost of raindrops. I laid down on a log, and just listened to the waves rolling in and out, and felt the sun upon my face. Yachts floated in the distance, and the tips of the Seattle buildings stretched above Magnolia Hill. The air smelled of salt and seaweed, and it was one of the most relaxing parts of my day.

I went there with my camera, wanting to capture this place and share it with you all, but alas, I only took two pictures when the silly camera died. Here are those two, and hopefully I'll be able to capture more before the rains take over for the next 8 months.

Thank you for sharing it. the first picture makes me desire to sit down there and close my eyes, with the seagulls' voices gently leading my mind away.
