It is quiet this morning. I noticed yesterday that two of my neighbors managed to sell their houses and this week the new people moved into each empty home. Perhaps those two tiny real estate sales are part of the larger signs that the economy is making a come back. From this small office the worries and unhappiness in the world seem far away. Once in a while ~ it is relaxing to forget, albeit for a moment.
It is raining here. It should not be as this is usually the beginning of our short lived dry spell. But then neither is this Ketchikan, Alaska. That town and its stalwart inhabitants endure 200" inches of rain a year. So 32 to 40 inches of 'here'...literally a drop in the bucket!
A river runs through it....
As with so much of the Northwest...coffee shops are an essential.
Tourist make the rounds in horse drawn trolleys...
There are boats and there are ships!
Island across the bay from Ketchikan. Notice the lush green dense forest...brought to you by 200 inches of rain!
Time to fetch the Sunday paper, sort the laundry and think about rainy days, a glorious vacation and well, not much else! Have a good one!
