Working off breakfast

Huh?  I was just resting my eyes.

Golden spring redux

Spring eruption of poppies in Port Townsend
California poppies blanket hillsides and meadows of the Pacific Northwest come May and June. This display is one of the more impressive we've run across. It was our view out of our third floor window behind the Palace Hotel in Port Townsend two weeks ago. Had to share.

At the end of the day each poppy closes up shop and turns in for the night.

On the mend

What a rough weekend for Casey. On Saturday he caught a dew claw on something, somewhere, and by the time we noticed the digit was bleeding and the claw was hanging loose. It looked cockeyed, nasty and painful. Enough so that we had to clean it and wrap it and keep him comfortable until this morning.  After a trip to the Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital he's back home and on the mend. His favorite doc Kris Johnson numbed it with Lidocaine and...Are you ready for this?...pulled it out the   rest   of   the   way. What a brave little guy. Notice that he's perfectly OK with his pink bandage. (Kinda matches the pink highlights of his nose.)

Indifferent Scot

Surprisingly our four-legged Scot couldn't have cared less about bagpipes on Water Street during the Rhododendron Festival in Port Townsend, Washington last week.

Even after a couple of weeks, our seasonal invasion of buttercups doesn't seem to be showing the first signs of letting up. Casey can actually disappear from sight with each new bend in a hiking trail.
