Samish Overlook

On our way down south for some back-to-school shopping, we stopped at Samish Overlook for a picnic and to see a spectacular view! Actually, it wasn’t really “on our way” – it was off the freeway and up Blanchard Mountain about 5 miles on a dirt road – but it was totally worth the dust, the bumping, and every minute.

_MG_5900 Starting to look to the west, but still somewhat south. Are those the Olympics back there?

_MG_5902 I wonder what she’s wondering about.

_MG_5903 And I wonder what those two are talking about. It can’t be good.

IMG_5910Thanks for taking our photo, Sarah! And thanks Ed for remembering to have our photo taken!!

_MG_5912 Same shot. Zoomed in. That’s a very sunk boat.

_MG_5916 My beauties

_MG_5924 She was not happy. She had gotten a scratch and it was bleeding. She was waiting for Daddy to get back from the van with a bandaid.

_MG_5926 But she was happy and beautiful!

_MG_5930 This child informed me the other night that she knows she is the cutest because everybody always tells her she is the cutest.

Perhaps it’s time to stop.

_MG_5933 Ah. Sweetness with light bubbles.
