This sweet piece of property is within walking distance of much of Sequim’s retail, Walmart, Home Depot, and other businesses. Not far away is a small housing subdivision. I suspect it’s one of Sequim’s heritage farms with at least 5-10 acres of land. A good part of the year there is at least a few head of cattle grazing.
First I noticed “For Sale” signs with “SALE PENDING” on them. Now it says “SOLD.” It’s such a pretty little farm. I hope it continues in agriculture rather than the never ending march of new housing.
This fellow resides at the Dungeness River Audubon Center. He’s pretty benign as bears go.
This boat was working its way around Dungeness Bay last Monday. There are a couple of things they might have been looking for. Green crabs have been found here, an unwelcome, invasive species. And last month a fish farm in the San Juan Islands accidentally released tens of thousands of Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound waters. They don’t belong here either.
We had friends in town for a few days recently. I’ll use any excuse to drive by the small herd of Shire horses a few miles from home. They are a beautiful draught horse, increasingly rare, whose population is considered at risk.
Ridley visited our home recently. He’s got the “cute dog” pose down cold.
Anytime is meal time for our local deer. Grass, shrubbery, flowers. Anything’s pretty much on the menu, including items that the Sunset Western Garden Book says are “deer resistant.” The young ones, especially, haven’t read that.
