Stunning photo! And so perfect for spring. We just had a cold snap here and I'm hoping it won't interfere with the beautiful plants starting to peek out...

Oh, sooo lovely... I can almost imagine the scent! It's been so long since I've seen or smelled a orange blossom... We don't have too many of those up here in the cold, far north--haha! Thanks for your lovely, kind comments, Juana--much appreciated. And Charlie say to tell you & Sputnik hello with purrs. ;o)

Cats and Dogs

At the beginning of April I took a long bike ride - 38 miles- before the Spring rains returned. I'm hoping to get another ride in this week. I stopped at a cafe and met Luna. Her owner was inside and she kept me company at the outdoor table where I was sitting. She didn't quite know what to think of having her photo taken.



On my walk to the market, I meet these outdoor cats everyday. They have been spayed and released to where they were found and have been living in place for a few years now. The man in the red jacket comes by every morning to feed them and another woman in the afternoon to check their bedding/cat houses and health. The cats know everyone's schedules and will often see me before I even see them.

Since I can't have any pets due to my rental lease, it warms my heart to be able to have these daily visits with these community cats and the dogs I meet along the way. And because of these cats, I've made some new human friends.

Japanese Paper Lanterns

Tradtional papermaking in Japan requires patience, experience and attention to detail and a strong back. Before I leave Japan, I hope to visit a washi papermaking artisan's workshop. Mino in Gifu Prefecture is well-known for their handmade washi paper. ImportantPapers.org has some wonderful photos showing Mino's process of making washi.

This past winter I was having lunch and noticed the beautiful paper lanterns in the restaurant near to my workplace. There are shadows within the lamps as well as on the ceilings. I really want to learn how to make one of these!

Whidbey Island, Prat Loop, Ebey's Landing State Park

At the end of September we took an overnight bicycle trip and stayed at the circa 1907 Captain Whidbey Inn. This was our second time this year to stay there. Both times we have stayed in the main log building. It is old and creaky which is part of its charm. The rooms in the main log building do not have a T.V. and I love that feeling of getting away from it all.








From the Inn, there are lots of local places accessible by bicycle. For this latest trip, we rode our bicycles from the Inn to the Pratt Loop which begins off of the Kettles Trail.

I've taken the Kettles Trail in the past when riding to  Fort Ebey State Park.

The National Park Service has a detailed map of the Kettles trail system and other trails that connect to it here: https://www.nps.gov/ebla/planyourvisit/upload/050514-Trails-Map.pdf
