Addendum ~ Photos ~ Gig Harbor, WA ~ May 2020 ~ A Beautiful Afternoon

It rained this morning, but cleared in the afternoon. Gig Harbor is beautiful when it’s sunny, even when Mt. Rainier is not visible. Today I walked a different part of the harbor than on the week-end. Very glad for the variety ….

I love photography and think of it as trying to capture a moment or the perfect shot. Photos are a fabulous way to remember people, events and special places.

Savor your journeys … past, present and future … real and imagined, near and far.

This past week-end was beautiful ~ sunny and clear ~ in the 80s. When we have days like this in the Pacific Northwest (known for drizzle, gray skies ~ which we will have most of this week) we take advantage!  There were many of us walking about Gig Harbor, soaking up the sun. Local restaurants were open for take-out and were doing a brisk business, which was great to see. 

I ordered take-out from a favorite restaurant, Devoted Kiss Café. Their Veggie Wrap is terrific and I am eagerly looking forward to their re-opening (no date set yet!) . 

On a clear day, you can see Mt Rainier in the distance ~ always spectacular.

Yesterday was a gorgeous, sunny day in Gig Harbor, perfect to walk about. On a clear day, you can see Mt Rainier in the distance ~ always spectacular.

I ordered take-out from a favorite restaurant, Devoted Kiss Café. Their Mediterranean Quiche is fabulous and I am eagerly looking forward to their re-opening. 

Spring is in the air – time for re-awakening.

On a beautiful crisp sunny, winter day, it’s marvelous to walk about Gig Harbor. A clear, sunny day in February is delightful as it’s so rare. After walking about, I stopped for a lunch at my favorite Italian Restaurant, Il Lucano   

I discovered that you can order from their extensive dinner menu at lunchtime, which meant a fabulous lunch of Caesar Salad, Veal Saltimbocca, White wine (Sicilian) and Cappuccino  … Fantastico!  Maybe we will have an early Spring?? And yes, that is Mount Rainier in the distance .. on a clear day, it is visible and very beautiful.

Savor your journeys … past, present and future … real and imagined, near and far.

“November is the pearl-grey month, the changeling between warm crimson October and cold white December, the month when the leaves fall in slow drifting whirls, and the shapes of the trees are revealed, when the earth imperceptibly wakes, and stretches her bare limbs and displays her stubborn unconquerable strength before she settles uneasily into winter. November is secret and silent”—Alison Uttley
