Back in the to speak

The kinks of a injured knee seem to have abated enough to get out and explore the world again. Surgery needs to happen eventually but for now I am thrilled to have camera in hand and a free week end to see more of this part of the world.   Have been learning about water fowl of Puget Sound.  It has been raining but the temperature is solidly in the 40's.  Finally I understand the Northwest passion for coffee.  Life goes on, rain or no rain, but it is much easier to be happy about being out in the weather with a hot latte or cappuccino in your hand while exploring this magnificent part of the States!  Hopefully tomorrow will present an opportunity to explore more coast line.  Spoke to a retired man today who gives some time each week to pick-up trash and glass off the little beaches here and there.  It washes in from the cities on the tides.  A good soul.  He could name numerous water fowl...I'm taking my bird book with me tomorrow and a bag to pick up trash.  Nice to be reminded that even small energy efforts can make a difference

I'm so sorry that you will need surgery later on for your knee! Please be careful in the meantime, so it doesn't get hurt worse.

Glad you are getting out and enjoying some of the beauty in your area.
