It is no longer hot. Tuesday Pacific Ocean air conditioning rolled in and dropped the temperature dramatically. The high on Tuesday was 62. Of course some people are happy and some are complaining that it's too cold. That's how it is here in the PNW.
I worked outside for two hours on Tuesday morning and then I had a hair cut appointment in the afternoon.
Now it's Wednesday morning, and it's 56 degrees at 10:00. A happy medium would be nice.
I have an appointment with a sports medicine doc early this afternoon to get an injection in my hip to hopefully relieve the tendonitis pain. I hope it works. Every little bit would help.
We have a Sounders match at the stadium this evening. I will go if I am feeling OK. I made it to the last one on Saturday well enough.
As promised, here are the rest of the photos from our short vacation on Whidbey Island last week.Garden editing done, on Friday morning we took the four bags to the yard waste dump.
Researching places to explore on line, I found that the Whidbey Coffee Roasters had re-opened, with a new bakery in the café. Oooo! Let's go there! And so we had coffee in the woods.
Mine. That ginger and cinnamon coffee cake was really good.
The inside is beautiful, but we opted to sit outside on this lovely morning.
Next in our morning exploring was a nursery that had recently come under new ownership and had been completely redone. We decided it was time to check it out.
I really liked these orange pots but I didn't need more pots so I resisted.
The old pond had been neglected so I was really happy to see it refreshed.
Then we had selected one area of the island that we had not yet "discovered", Possession Point, where we saw online that there was a small State Park. This is the southernmost tip of the island. Let's go! So that was our "walk on the wild side" for the morning.
Mt. Baker to the left, and Mt Shuksan to the right.
Tom looking for interesting rocks.
Proof that I made it to the beach!
