Humane Society

The Humane Society has moved into new quarters on Old Olympic Highway in Port Angeles. They provide a cute welcome with this mailbox.

There’s a new building on the property called the “Bark House” for dogs.

“Kitty City” houses the cats.

And there’s an office where you can take care of the necessities for adopting a new friend.

The local elk

There’s a herd of elk that calls Sequim home. I’ve only photographed them a couple of times because I’ve never been in the right place at the right time. A call on Saturday from a local blog follower (thank you, SAM!) alerted me that they were gathered in a field toward the north end of town.

The last time I encountered the herd I only saw one bull. I was surprised to see at least six this time. They were at some distance but my little Lumix camera zoomed in well enough to get this shot.

Remembering Martin Luther King Jr. today with this quote from him, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” King stood tall in the challenging times of his life.
