Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

April 17, 2012


We had the most amazingly warm day in mid-March.  And by amazingly warm I mean about 60*.  I wore shorts for the first time this season!  So I decided to take the furkids out for walkies in Onset.  Saw a ton of glass but none of it was worn at all.  It was all pretty fresh.  If it was worn down, it'd be a beach glass junky's paradise.

I let them off leash at Riverside Beach for a bit.

Then I took them over to Onset Beach.

Dump duck with his catch of the day.

A woman and her daughter, who I'd say was no more than 3, were flying this kite.


  1. Have i mentioned that i really really really need to come for a vacation in your neck of the woods. It looks all so beautifull!

  2. Looks like a wonderful day! I love the Squid Row sign. That is too cute :) The kite is beautiful. Reminds me of flying kites with my grandfather when I was a little girl. He used to make them and we had so much fun!

  3. Onset looks absolutely beautiful and inviting and you did a great job of photographing it.

  4. I too am a fan of the Squid Row sign :) And yes, again, I'm a copycat - - beautiful photos!!

  13. I'm jealous that you're near the beach. I wish I'm near one. I hate driving. LOL I can see myself retiring near the ocean.
