Good Golly…

We are already on the letter G for ABC Wednesday! Thank you to Denise Nesbitt and the ABC team!

I’m going with Green and Gargoyle for the letter G. Green moss is something that we have quite an abundance of here in the great Northwest.

Our apple tree is covered in moss.

On our trips to Great Britain we enjoy looking up to see the Gargoyles that are here and there.

To Windsor 146

Oxford Day 6 153

Biltmore 005

We have gargoyles here in the U.S.A., too. My daughter and I toured the Biltmore House and Gardens and these creatures looked down on us.

One last addition to the letter G is my Bible verse card for the week. Timely indeed because of the letter G and because of present circumstances!


Hope you are enjoying the last week of February. So many of you are enduring some harsh winter conditions and I hope things settle down to a more mild clime. We have some rain in the forecast again here in the Northwest after enjoying several dry sunny days.


More From the Road…

Although the eagles and mountains we saw on our roadtrip were the most majestic of our views we saw other lovely sights. This robin sat still long enough for me to capture with my lens.

The sun played nicely on and through the moss on the trees we passed along the road.

The last photos I took on this trip were of this Orthodox church in Arlington where we returned to Interstate 5 to head home. Love the design of the crosses.

What’s up for you today? We are having a meal tonight with 3 of our 5 kiddos. I’m thinking I’ll set the table with pink, red, and white…

Oysterville 2

More from the picturesque little town of Oysterville and proof that we actually had oysters! When in Rome…


Look at the moss on this fence. What’s the difference I wonder between moss and lichen? I’ll have to research that.

This bit of history really made us chuckle. On the way back home we stopped by the Pacific county courthouse in South Bend and we chuckled again.

Fresh oysters from “the cleanest bay in North America” or at least that’s what the signs said. Can you believe everything you read on signs or the internet? The oysters were very fresh and very good. I never crave an oyster but since we were driving through and staying in an oyster capital of the world it seemed most fitting to indulge in some oysters.

Oh my today is the last day of August! Dear is still on vacation until Tuesday and we are for the most part laying low on Labor Day Weekend. We are joining Josh and Laura for brunch on Sunday to celebrate their anniversary late. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
