A peek at Washington


Hello, 

We've had a lot going on lately, this past Saturday evening we arrived home after vacationing 2 weeks in Washington State. Then I started having problems with my desktop after the Windows 10 anniversary update? So, as I type this post on my tiny mini iPad our desktop in the repair shop! I have not loaded my camera photos onto my computer and I only have these camera photos.  I can not share any Washington state birds, they are still on my camera. Enjoy the view!


This scene is of the Olympic Mountains at the Hoh River.

Washington State trip May 2017

We like to fly on Southwest Air, we had a direct flight to Seattle and then rented a car to drive all around.   We drove a loop started at the Mt. Rainier Nat'l Park, Anacortes, Port Angeles, Cape Flattery, La Push, Olympic Nat'l Park and Olympia back to Sea-Tac.


I appreciate your visit and for your comments!  I wish everyone a great day and weekend ahead!

These photos are beautiful! Computers are pesky things, are they not?! I have a "newish" one with all kinds of antivirus protection and it has still picked up something. *sigh* Thanks for linking up today!

Betsy Adams said...

Oh what a wonderful trip you all had..... You are traveling-crazies ---as much or more than we are. You no sooner got home from Fl when you left for Washington.... We do crazy things like that... I'm sure you are glad to be home even with the computer problem.... That is NO FUN....

Beautiful pictures and I cannot wait to see more.

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm thankful that you had a great time in beautiful Washington and that you got home safely. (I'm really starting to miss the Pacific Northwest about this time of year as you can imagine!).... I'm glad you got home safely and look forward to you pictures. I have a notice that my PC is going to update my computer tonight and I'm a little afraid of what might happen. Hope yours gets fixed soon.

I'm envious that you were able to visit Washington state. It's a place I have long wanted to visit, but haven't got there yet. Hopefully your computer issues get resolved. I would love to see your photos.
