All Moved In

Becky And Her Storage Unit 2

Becky and her stuff

I now feel like an official Washington State Citizen. I have my WA driver’s license, WA plates on my little car, WA car insurance, and my stuff arrived from Texas last week and is now ensconced in a nice, roomy storage unit, for the time being.

I lived in WA 23-some years ago (Seattle), moving to southeast TX to be with my aging parents.  Now that they are gone, I feel like I am finally home again, sort of like a prodigal daughter returning. And it feels great! Chilly mornings (I can wear my fleece again!), dry heat (no humidity), cool evenings, local fresh fruits and vegetables, local wineries, living within driving distance of national parks and other amazing photo ops, sitting around a glowing chiminea at night sipping whiskey with my sister and her son and playing with the Great Dane, and enjoying not worrying about hurricanes and flooding every 6 months.

Sure feels good to be home, again.

Valley and Mountains

Whenever I travel out to eastern Washington to visit my sister and her family, I detour outside of Ellensburg to stop at a pullout overlooking a valley and the mountains beyond. I’ve captured this image quite a number of times, with different cameras. This time, I photographed the view with a rented Canon 5D Mark III.
