I was almost afraid to go out in the rain today and take photos because my camera was just back from Olympus because of moisture problems I had before. BUT I DID! I like the rain drops I captured on this budding tree. . . CLICK on to enlarge. If you enlarge this as big as it is, you can see MY reflection in the raindrop! I was so surprised to find this out!

I got the call tonight at 5:00 PM that my camera was ready to be picked up. If I could get there before 6:00, I could have it tonight. Of course, I went to get it. I am so happy to have my friend back! Thus, I can show you my latest project!

I had the privilege of meeting an author in Port Orchard (at their public library) one evening while I was visiting son and family. DIL took me. She had read his book and I almost got it read before we went the second day I was in Port Orchard. (It was a long book and I had to take time to "walk my camera too.") I bought my own copy and re-read it from the beginning twice! He autographed it. The book Richard LeMieux wrote is called "Breakfast at Sally's" and is about his experience being homeless in the Bremerton/Port Orchard area. He traveled with his little dog and he says that he will be writing a children's book about his dog next. I did not get to meet his little dog as it had passed away just recently. IF you have not read this book, I highly recommend it.
Book cover credit from Google on internet since I have no working camera. . .

Grandson in high school is quite the cook. Among other things that he made especially for me, during my birthday week visit,was this lemon pie. I was waiting for it to cool but my son had to have a piece so he took out of refrigerator and cut a slice so . . . I did too --that's why the bottom looks a bit juicy -- was not cooled enough! IT SURE DID TASTE GOOD THO!

Look closely at the snowy branches. . . NO WE DID NOT GET MORE SNOW --this is from the end of December, our only snow day. Ok, so do you see the "snow worms" dancing on the branches? CLICK on to enlarge to see the show!

Today, we had the bluest skies ever in a very long time! Mount Hood looked the same as it did in the end of December when I took this photo. For so long, with all our rain, it has been invisible with the overcast skies.

I was taking photos of the other side of the waterway in Port Orchard/Bremerton area with its fog and clouds and colorful houses when I heard this loud noise. . .
I looked to my left, zoomed in and spotted the speed boat crashing through the water. The tree reflections aren't half bad either! The mist hung on all day long. CLICK on photos for details.

I guess if the Olympics in the "other Vancouver" doesn't have enough snow for the Winter Olympics starting this Friday without trucking it in, we aren't going to get any either. . . sigh . . . glad I still have photos to look at from our three inches we got back in late December. It's not fair that the east coast got all our snow this year!

This is how our ONE (1) snowstorm this winter began. . . With everyone back east getting multitudes of snow they don't want, I don't know why the weather doesn't co-operate and give us a second snow day this winter. I am so sad. . . The above was not a blizzard three days after Christmas -- it was rather pleasant to walk in. This is part of the replica of Fort Vancouver during our one snow storm of the winter. . . sigh
