The tulip/daffodil fields are covered in rain

Sunday, April 14, 2013

My family and I went camping near the towns in Western Washington where tulip and daffodil fields bloom in Spring. The weather was mostly cold and rainy, so we only drove past a field during a break from the rain. As you can see, only half the field has daffodils growing. I think that's Mt. Baker under all those clouds, if you can see it:

We went over a bridge. There are so many islands, channels, sounds, bays in Western WA... I don't know where we were.

We also went under the bridge:

Sunset over the Skagit River:

On our way home, we stopped at a beach north of Seattle. Yay for some outside time!

We had a relaxing weekend of Outlet Mall shopping since the weather didn't cooperate for all of our outdoors plans. But I'm happy I came home with a few pretty pictures for you.
Have a great week!

    Sorry about the weather but you really did get some excellent shots. The sunset is amazing, the beach scene too. The shots of the islands look much like the coast of Maine. The trees go down to the ocean and we have very few sand beaches. That means that when you find one it usually is very crowded. I am not a sand lover I love the trees. Thanks for sending me the note I will once again make sure I tick the box. I am happy you enjoyed your well deserved break Hugs and much love Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    How very beautiful, Sharon. I'm so sorry it was rainy, but glad you found things to do to enjoy your days away from routine. BEAUTIFUL pictures! Thank you so much for sharing your trip with us.

It's a neat shot of the bridge, the sunset is beautiful, and the shot of the ocean makes me wish I were there. : ) I like your other pictures, too, and am thankful for you, and that you think of us. emoticon

    As beautiful as those pictures are, I know they are only a small fractional experience of the wonder and beauty of those vistas, not to mention the combination of seeing those things whilst being with others, breathing the fresh air and feeling the joy of movement in exercise. Truly a wonderful trip.
