Hanging Baskets

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

Follow The Elk

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.

The Blue Whole

A local art cooperative gallery used a play on words, as their name. We have some very talented artists in this area and I originally posted a link to their website..only to find out it doesn’t work.

Music In Sequim

The band shelter at Carrie Blake Park in Sequim, WA

In the Sequim area there are many opportunities to listen to and participate in musical events. At Carrie Blake Park we have a recently constructed band shelter. On Saturday afternoons during the summer you can listen to a variety of musical performances. Last weekend Sequim Marimba performed to a “packed’ lawn. The group has been together for about 10 years and performs mostly music from Zimbobwa (sp?)
