Washington Park, Anacortes

Hello and Happy Thursday!

I am sharing some more Washington State photos. We stayed a few nights May 2nd thru May 5th in Anacortes Washington.

A few Great Blue Herons, they must have found a good fishing spot.


Bald Eagle sitting in a near by tree.


A view of the ferry from the beach at Washington Park


A seal near the boat dock at Washington Park.


I read that Washington Park in Anacortes was a great place to watch sunsets.  A little cloudy but it still was a pretty sunset on this evening.





For my list of thankful things this week:
I am always thankful to see a sunset.
I am thankful for all the birds and critters, I hope they and other wildlife remain safe and healthy in our world.



I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.  Thanks so much for visiting and for your nice comments. Have a happy day!

Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday

Thank you to the hosts of   Skywatch Friday

  20. Wonderful photos, Eileen - love the seal and his whiskers! I've been there, but it has been a while. Took the kiddos on the ferry to Vancouver Island from there one year. My oldest turns 40 this year, so you can see - it's been a while! Haha!
