Someday I want to be able to take photographs like Wildlight Photo Gallery artist Zach Holmes.
Sequim, like many small towns in the Northwest, often decorates the outside of building with murals that depict the area. This one is located on the Heather Creek building, next to Hurricane Coffee Company
We don’t have the beautiful colors I’ve observed in the Northeast, but occasinally you will catch a change in color that catches your eye.
I was waiting for a friend to arrive and looking for something to photograph. The light on these ferns caught my eye.
Located in Port angeles with brances in Forks, Neah Bay, Port Townsend, and on a limited basis in Sequim, Peninsula Community Collegebegins it’s Fall quarter today. Currently they provide a two year degree program and technical program to those interested in pursuing an education. A four year degree program will be offered in 2007. I have the honor and privilege to teach for the PCC in the English as a Second Language department at the Sequim site. I will also be transistioning into ABE/GED this year. Lots of fun challenges. This is a picture of the clock tower on the recently completed Student Services building. Not very impressive by old school standards, but pretty darn nice for a young community college.
Here in Sequim, pumpkins of assorted sizes, shapes and colors are starting to show up in stores. I was particularly struck by the shade of these when I ran across them today at the local country store, Sunny Farms. Locals shop here for the freshest veggies, fruits, and meat. I like the way the people in the deli take care of me. Occasionally I will have quilters come and stay for a weekend. I call their sandwich orders in and then go and pick them up in about 30 minutes. My guests love them…no fuss, no muss. Their soups are excellent, also.
If the house hadn’t been in the way, you could have seen all the way to Vancouver Island. I was on the campus of our Community College in neighboring Port Angeles today and was struck by this view as I got out of my car. Living in Sequim, we are only 17 miles from Victoria as the crow flies. I go there every time I can afford it.
