Rare sighting

On my many trips to and from Whidbey Island over the years, I have only seen an eagle on this Fidalgo Island snag on two or three occasions. On this day in 2013 I was fortunate to find a parking spot and get to Canoe Pass Bridge in time to take a few shots.

Locked up

I drive by routinely, but last weekend I found an opening in the traffic and pulled in to the Dugualla Bay Farms fresh produce stand on North Whidbey. Among the photos I took was this closeup of gears on a piece of rusted, lichen-infested McCormick-Deering equipment. The farm lies directly under the path of U.S. […]
