The beach offers many opportunities for the dog and the photographer to play… As dog the water and sand provide an interesting landscape full of sights, sounds and scents.
I am married, have two grown children and five grandchildren. I have lived in Kitsap County for most of my life. I am a photographer and watercolor artist. About ten years ago, I started getting serious about photography, and started selling photo cards in the local stores and to friends. Living in Kitsap County gives me ample opportunity for photography subjects.
Summer just would not be summer without some time spent boating on the salty waters of the puget sound. The kids really enjoy wave jumping, geting splashed, wet and wild while keeping cool.
Truth be told I have just as much fun as the kids!
After wave Jumping, we like to go check our crab pot and see if we caught any Dungeness crab. This time out we had around seven crab in the pot, and although I was being very careful not to get pinched, when I reached in I did not see the crab right under the one I was reaching for and it pinched me good. It drew first blood.
Judy Odell was born and raised in the Northwest, consequently she is naturally drawn to the sea. She has an incredible view of Puget Sound from her home and in recent years has discovered sport fishing by casting her line from her own beach on Puget Sound. Her abstracts, seascapes, landscapes, sea birds and brightly colored florals, for which she is nationally acclaimed, represent the abundance and color of the West Coast.
On the Summer Solstice this year Mother Nature gave us the most incredible whole day of gorgeous summer weather. The Port of Kingston Marina was fantastic with Mount Rainier shining in the background. Even the commuters unloading from the ferry were strolling, not hurrying.
This sign in this summer weather probably made golfers long to be on the golf course. That Kingston Rotary event must have done quite well with a large turnout. The White Horse Golf Club is beautiful and offers a free Edmonds/Kingston Golf Shuttle for golfers coming from the other side of Puget Sound. The Pro Shop is open seven days a week and you can reserve your tee times online.
