From December 2014.
Taken yesterday in the port. I am not exactly sure what they are moving.
The Ragtag Daily Prompt today is patience. We still have some fog. We hope for clear sailing. We hope the fog bank will shrink. Right now we can see what is under it and avoid it. Patience, patience. Mask and immunize, please, please, push back the fog.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: partners.
My plumbing, from the 1930s, backed up yesterday. I pay for emergency service, but they came four hours after I called. I did damage control and then really wanted a shower. My boat is docked at the port, so I went and used the port showers. Whew. That felt better. Plumbing is fixed, hooray.
This pair were swimming in the port when I got there. Snapped with my cell phone. I think they are Barrow’s goldeneye or Common goldeneye ducks. Small diving ducks. They headed away quickly when they realized I was watching.
For Wordless Wednesday.
…Except it’s Tuesday…Happy Tuesday everyone!
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: putrescent.
But it’s a family! Fishing! Our local five otter family, that I’ve seen before, pictures here and here. I can’t tell who is an adult and who is a child now, they are all pretty much the same size. They were swimming along and catching fish, heads tilted up to eat when they surfaced.
These are river otters, even though they are fishing in the Salish Sea.
And why putrescent? Oh, they are delightful to watch, but they can leave some very putrescent gifts on the dock or in the boats….
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: rain.
The ferry is so small…..
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: frost.
I took this in January 2018. The water is not frozen, but it is cold. And the color of the water looks like frost or ice….
