Fake Journal, raincoat, letters to antigone

Fake Journal 2012 cover

I love blog hopping which is how I found Roz's IFJM blog.  For the month of April, participants keep a fake journal that is outside of their regular visual journal.

My mind started leaping with ideas. In the next few weeks, you'll see posts titled "Fake Journal" on my blog.

I dug up this old journal that I had refused to throw away 'cuz I knew some day it would have a purpose. For the cover, I collaged one of my failed paintings and wrote a short message. I've been carting it around with me since 2008, from Japan to Mexico to California and now Washington.

I saw this when I was commenting on your 52 Photos Project entry. I didn't do it last year but I did it the year before and it turned out to be amazingly therapeutic for me. I hope to do it in April of 2013. I like what I have seen of yours!

bird watching and staying home for the summer

Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home. In the meantime, I have been pretty productive with my 100 Self Portraits project. Watching the birds that come to the bird feeders has been my daily dose of joy. fledgling House Finch  Chestnut- backed Chickadee Dark-Eyed Oregon Junco Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home.

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 . Captain Whidbey Inn Captain Whidbey Inn view from our room 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 Kettle Spur trail Kettle Spur trail Pratt Loop Pratt Loop Trail at

Bicycle day trip in Port Townsend, WA

Larry Scott trail, Cape George Trailhead Larry Scott trail, Port Townsend WA We cycled down the Larry Scott trail several years ago when we took a bike tour and camped at the Fort Townsend State Park.  The trail extends even further so we returned to Port Townsend and revisited the trail.  Jefferson County provides a nice map of the trail here: https://www.co.jefferson.wa.us/DocumentCenter/View/972/Larry-Scott-Trail-Trail-Map-PDF The trail begins at the boatyard and meanders along the coast past the paper mill.  Since we had taken that route before, I wanted to travel a different route to reach the Cape George trailhead.  We took the back roads (Hastings Ave W to Cape George Rd) and for the most part, there was hardly any traffic.  Port Townsend is a very bicycle friendly town and most drivers/cars do their part to share the road.
