With our wonderful weather it is hard to realize fall is just around the corner. I captured this “Orange Art” in front of one of our local restrauants.
Note the dog bowl attached to the bottom of the water fountain. This is in Carrie Blake Park close to the water reuse center.
In Seal Park is a Life Trail station…I love the side that asks one to “exercise your mind.”
This was the original “coffee shop” in Sequim. It still has some of the best…but it is now one of many. The name “Hurricane”“Hurricane” comes from Hurricane Ridge not far away in the Olympic Mountains. It’s a beautiful site we will visit later, but the wind can blow just like a hurricane.
Lots of towns in Western Washington have hanging baskets. Ours are special. Starting in the winter, the local highschool FFA department begins growing plants and getting baskets ready to hang. The students do a wonderful job. They are hung after Mother’s Day through out Sequim and tended through the summer by the city. They always bring a smile to my face
Sequim is famous for it’s Roosevelt Elk. The City Fathers had metal elk sculptures installed at the off ramps on both ends of town. They adorn the streets signs in downtown Sequim. But now the elk have become a problem. Those who have built in their migration and grazing patterns are often surprised with elk staring in their windows or munching on their newly planted shrubs and trees. Who should go and who should stay? Unfortunately, I think I know who will win.
On Washington Street in Sequim is perhaps the smallest park in the world. Seal Street used to feed in to Washington. The City Fathers decided to “sidewalk” it off, put in a map, a Life Trail exercise point, and posted a sign. There is a lovely bench to sit and watch people and you are right beside wonderful flowers.
