Would You Like a Scoop of Geoduck Ice Cream?

with 2 comments

Salted caramel ice cream. Orange coriander ice cream. Sweet summer corn buttermilk sherbert.

The whole put-anything-you-can-find-and-see-if-it-works-in-ice-cream-trend is tasty at times, edgy at best, but has become so ubiquitous that off-color flavors rarely merit a reaction.

That was until I saw the geoduck ice cream sign.

Winter Sunset

with 3 comments

Frost covered the ground for the larger part of the day, a white dusting remaining in cold corners protected by the shade of trees. Typical Pacific Northwest gray rain clouds were traded for clear winter skies, a brisk nip in the air. On beautiful days like this, it’s clear that the evening landscape shouldn’t be missed, and we packed up a thermos of tea and headed for one of the many rocky beaches of the Puget Sound.

Quiet and clear, as afternoon turned into dusk, the seasonal sun set, with warm colors reflecting off of soft clouds, turning the sky into a winter painting. With the setting sun, the air turned colder, and steam rose from our tea cups as we looked out over the calm waters and breathed in the winds of the season.

That’s how you should spend Christmas Day…

Friday Photo: Seattle Ferry

with one comment

Exploring Western Washington and Puget Sound by hopping on one of the many ferries is an excellent way to get to know this beautiful area of the state. Taking the ferry to Seattle, walking up to Pike Place Market and spending the day with beautiful views over the water happens to be one of my favorite weekend activities when in Washington.

I captured this shot on the way back from a day in Seattle, filled with coffee and pain au raisin at the excellent French bakery Le Panier, fish and chips at the market, plenty of window shopping, and an expertly wrapped piece of chevre flavored with ash from Beecher’s. An amazing display of clouds and sun rays played out during the whole ferry ride home, topping an urban day off with an incredible show of nature.

It’s funny how when you leave home you appreciate it so much upon return…
