This is at the base of a totem pole at the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course, owned by the local Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe. Fitting for a golf course, wouldn’t you say?
This is the kind of sunset that demands reverence…or awe.
Olympic Lavender Farm was sold to new owners last year and if I’m not mistaken it also has a new sign. The owners have two other lavender growing sites in the Dungeness area in addition to this five acre plot.
The Olympic Lavender farm is 19 years old and plans are afoot to plant thousands of additional lavender plants here this fall. Like many of our other farms, Olympic Lavender has a farm store and a variety of lavender products created with their organic blossoms.
Here’s another chunk of the Dungeness Recreation Area bluff that’s headed seaward. Most of the land here is just compacted sand, really. Give it enough rain, throw in a little wind, and voila! A new jog in the trail.
This handsome mallard stood watch while his mate first pecked around for food on land and then headed into the water for a bath. I rather liked his mirrored reflection.
The wetlands around Dungeness Recreation Area seem to be brimming with water this year. Since hunting has ended there, ducks have begun showing up, too.
Sometimes sunset doesn’t have to be in technicolor to be noteworthy.
