One of my favorite places to go and fortunately it's only five minutes from our house!

And I do love boats!

Such a beautiful place! It would have been my favourite place too if it was near my home. Your pictures capture the essence of the place so well!

Sailboats are so relaxing. that one looks like it's being pushed by the rubber dingy.

Great photos and reflections. I esp like the sunset on the water. How nice this is only five min away...

Wonderful shots. They really show the beauty of the Northwest. The top one would be perfect for the last scene of a movie.

The one of the Sunset was beautiful. The ducks seem quite content to get the sun or paddle around in the pool.

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.
