Sunset Over the Olympic Mountains

I am posting a photo I took last winter from Deception Pass State Park off of Rosario Head near Anacortes, Washington. In the distance you can see the Olympic Peninsula and the Olympic Mountains flowing into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Nature is perhaps the most creative Artist
The World has ever Known.

Barrow's Goldeneye Taking Off


We can get so caught up in our tensions, that we forget what if feels like to live outside of tension. When the weight and gravity of any situation is lifted, then Life feels Wonderful.

Red Breasted Merganser at Semiahmoo Spit



We each learn a discipline so we can transcend the discipline into an art of living. We do something over and over again using our thoughts and minds until we feel we can do it right. But we only do it right when it becomes easy and we no longer have to think about it. It flows out of us effortlessly and we become one with this wave or motion that we personally have generated. The discipline, therefore, becomes transcended and is no longer needed. This is a time when dreams begin to come true, and the world becomes a wondrous mystery to be explored.
I took this photo of a Male Red Breasted Merganser at Semiahmoo Spit near Blaine, Washington.

Steller Sea Lion's from Adak Island, Alaska



One Morning when Stacey and I were about to land our boat on a small island to collect some sea otter research, a small gang of about ten Steller Sea Lion's approached our small zodiac boat and started swimming back and forth in front of us. They seemed quite curious but were rather rambunctious and were very expressive for well over 15 minutes. Overall, they were rather comical and fun to watch and experience.
Everything in life should come easy to us and without tension and stress. If there is distress and hardship, it is a true sign that you are going in the wrong direction.

Hovander Homestead Park in Ferndale, WA








Hi Everyone, this is Hovander Homestead Park in Ferndale, Washington.
This barn was built in 1911 by a Swedish Immigrant and Architect named Hokan Hovander. It was restored in 1971 and is located on 720 acres of Park land. We often come to this unique setting to enjoy and to take pictures of Wildlife. On our way home we stopped to take photographs of Trumpeter Swans that frequent the many cut corn fields in our region.


Like this renovated barn, it's time to take a good look at Ourselves and Our World and Restore it to a condition where it looks and feels Good to Live in.

Immature Northern Goshawk Taking Flight





Set your Course
With determined thoughts and intentions,
And then just enjoy the ride
Feeling your Way
Through the currents and turbulence
Of everyday Life.

Elephant's Head Flower



We are having some snow
mixed with rain here in the coastal region
of the Pacific Northwest of North America.
So this week I am posting a summer mountain flower
called Elephant's Head (Pedicularis groenlandica),
which is in the Figwort Family.
I love the colour of this beautiful flower,
And enjoy seeing its' unique form and namesake.
