Spring Really is Here!!

We had a little dab and dribble of sunshine today and I took the camera and Sam and headed to the park above the harbor. There were sailboats out on the water and if you enlarge the pictures by clicking on them you can see the Cascade Mountains in the distance. There was even a tiny patch of shivering daffodils! They looked scrawny and a little beat up, but it was a spot of color!

As I started back to the car I noticed a yard across the street that looked so lovely even though the tree and shrubs were really just beginning to blossom out, but again, it was the first real sign of spring that I've seen and it looked gorgeous! Again, to really get a good look at them, click to embiggen!

It is so exciting to be leaving winter behind isn't it...

Yup. It's really happening, but boy, it sure is still cold.

Spring is wonderful even if there are a few cold days thrown in. You got some beautiful pictures.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
