Close Up and Far Away

The master of the house demanded his walk today.  The sun is shining, after all.  At least it was shining.  Now it's not.  Good thing the master is so demanding or we might have waited too long.


It is not raining, but it is wet.  We have to give our feet a good tongue-lashing when we go back inside, and clean the flotsam off our tummies too.

Far away, we could see Mt. Adams today, although Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens are shrouded in clouds.

Close-up, we thought these broken terra cotta pots were interesting. 

Enough fun for one day.  The holidays are officially over.  Mike went back to work today.  Mt. Laundry is calling my name.

You definitely live in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Glad that George enjoyed the sunshine.

I was going to say what Linda said. You must live in the most beautiful place! I had a George cat many years ago that looked like your George!

Just lovely - my furries don't want to take the 'walk' today, nor do I - sub-zero temps with the wind chill.

My house would be made of nothing but windows if I lived there and I would get nothing accomplished inside unless I could set up my sewing machine in front of the window with that amazing view.

The mountains are really gorgeous, but I love the pot too.

You really are getting some beautiful shots with your new camera, think I need to complain to sony about mine, lol. Maybe I should learn to use it right, just used to my old camera and what I can do with it and haven't had the time to really play with the settings and other things.
