Rain breaks for the morning. Sailboats race in Lake Union; they look tiny next to Seattle’s sprawling skyline. The size of the city still surprises me, and on our long walk today we will cover a mere fraction of it.
The “other” Las Vegas. A quiet and unpretentious little sister to Santa Fe, this colorful mountain town is one of my favorite places for shooting film photos, and also happens to be a popular filming location for movies and TV shows.
A trip to Northern Washington would not be complete without visiting the San Juan Islands. The ferry ride from Anacortes to Friday Harbor makes for a reasonably priced day trip, and in this case the journey may be even better than the destination.
San Diego is such a sunny, colorful city that black & white film may seem like an odd choice…almost noirish. But I kind of like it for that very reason.
On a good day, this is “work”. Incredibly fortunate timing provided the perfect natural lighting for a quickie photo shoot for our Vintage Shop.
Walk. Take pictures. Eat. Drink. Repeat. So goes our last (long, super-fun) full day in Bellingham. During our Fairhaven / South Bay Trail / downtown Bellingham trek, all five senses are in for sweet treats.
Bellingham, Washington has rightfully earned its nickname: “the city of subdued excitement”. Bellingham boasts a stunning waterfront location, two historic downtown business districts, hundreds of miles of trails, Western Washington University, a variety of interesting restaurants, cideries and breweries, and other entertainment options not typically found in a city of 89,000.
One doesn’t just happen upon Cedar Key. This place is pretty isolated, which is just one of the reasons it is so very special. If you are looking for a taste of Old Florida , this just might be the place you find it.
Taking a little break from blogging our great western road trip, the next few posts will focus on our January road trip to Florida. Over the course of two weeks, we saw fresh and salt water in colors from black as oil to aqua blue to crystal clear, experienced ecosystems and wild creatures unlike any we’ve seen before, ate a variety of delicious regional foods, had a serendipitous meeting in St. Pete, visited the homes and final resting places of some of our favorite authors, and spent a surprising amount of time shivering from the cool weather.
By happenstance we land in Port Townsend, Washington on just the right weekend to take in the Wooden Boat Festival. Tho we quickly learn that this charming seaside town offers unique experiences for the traveler any time of the year.
