When one thinks of how to spend a January 13th Anniversary in Seattle thoughts don't always gravitate to a nice warm sunny walk at Alki Beach with a few friends....more like someplace inside warm out of the rain with a good bottle of champagne. But our
12th turned out to be pretty much something you could not script because nobody would believe it. We both have just kicked out the flu bug and amazingly because it was 55 degrees and sunny on Alki we did take that walk on Alki.....and a lot of friends showed up...human and other. We will never forget #12....you may understand why from the images...

After spending the night in South Puget Sound the Resident Orcas that past Seattle on Monday headed back north past Seattle this morning. These have been identified as members of J and K pods. Behaviors included foraging and travel...some breaching was also seen as well as one whale that became inverted....image attached is poor due to distance and air conditions near the water surface.....so please forgive the poor quality.
This is a late post from October 2017 from Nisqually Delta. While this a part of the Puget Sound the animals are distinctly fresh water...and trees. They are included here just because it was impossible for me to leave them out of a post due to their cuteness....and their abundance in the Nisqually Delta. Usually the Delta is the place to go to see ducks, geese, and other waterfowl as well as herons as well as eagles, hawks, falcons, and a variety of other birds. This year the Pacific Chorus Frogs stole the show. Garter snakes were almost as common as the frogs.
