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.
Want to experience some snowy weather? Well that’s not far from Kitsap County. Just head over to the Olympic Peninsula and go to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park just outside of Port Angeles. The recent winter weather has left a fantastic snow pack in the Olympic Mountains which makes for great winter recreating. You can indulge in snow shoeing, cross country skiing, ski lessons, sledding, and snow boarding at Hurricane Ridge.
The American Legion Park of Poulsbo Wa is located just off Front Street. It can also be accessed at the north end of the Boardwalk at the Liberty Bay Park on the waterfront.
This is a shot of the boardwalk connecting the two parks. It is a very safe boardwalk and perfectly maintained for accommodating baby strollers, toddlers, walkers of all ages, and even bicycles (except for the overcrowding factor).
While visiting friends on Apple Tree Point on one of those hot summer days, we took this photo looking across the sound to Whidbey Island. Since we live in such a dynamic area it is important to get out and enjoy our beaches and water recreation. This particular part of Puget Sound offers a fantastic view of the shipping lanes which includes, at about 5 pm daily, the cruise ships passing by on their way to Alaska. What with all the clamming, drift wood and shell gathering, fishing, walking in the sand, and wading in the water – well, what a wonderful summer we have had this year in Puget Sound.
