colorful friday

we set out this so called "black friday" in search of any color other than black 
... here is our journey in photos ...

this photo is of one of my favorite sights from Interstate 5: 
the waste water (i.e. sewage) lagoon in between Everett and Marysville 
with a backdrop of the Cascades and a ceiling of blue:
Blue Friday

this is a small lake just before you get to Deception Pass on the way over to Whidbey Island:
Green Friday
here is my daughter with her dog walking on the beach of a tiny little bay on Whidbey:
Red Friday
here is Sadie hoping for a fish:
Golden Brown Friday

we went from Whidbey Island on up to Fairhaven and our obligatory stop at Rocket Donuts:
(I had a powder cake donut - boring but delicious)
Neon Friday

from Fairhaven it's a short hop up to Bellingham:
(this is a Baltic Porter which was being unmasked today)
Black Friday

leaving Bellingham we had a gorgeous sunset - the sun sets early up here - it was only 4:30:
Golden Friday

It was a great day of all of us together crammed into the car and driving all over hither and yon 
- as the girls are getting older it's rare that all of our schedules sync together -
we had the usual gamut of emotions from giggles to grimaces and cheerful chatter to sulking silence
- but, hey, it's life.  A colorful life.

Sigh -- Whidbey Island! I spent three weeks there last June and July, and it feels like a dream. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, and thanks for the beautiful photos!

I live in Marysville and recognize all the places you went. We always laugh about how beautiful the full moon is reflecting on the sewage lagoon!!!

I've been absent from blogs - my own and others - due to painting in every spare moment, and have missed your eye for beauty and artistic way of expressing it in words. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
