Day 2; at Discovery Bay in Port Townsend and we sent the day just resting at the house. Gino’s heading out this afternoon to do some halibut fishing in the Strait with 3 of his friends (He told me he was going to blog about the trip himself; so you’ll have to bug him about that!). Isabel and I will spend the late afternoon and early evening by ourselves at the house. Enjoy!
The front of the 2 bedroom/1 bath rental looking north from the garage.
(All these house photos were taken over the first 2 days we were there and at about the same times; that’s why it’s evening)
Side door looking west. They use the side door as the front door and the front door remains locked.
Back of the house. Not a good shot but it’s the best I could do with the placement of the trees in the yard.
A view further down the yard, closer to the steps leading to the beach.
What the owner calls a “garage”. I call it a large storage room; you can find galoshes of all sizes and clamming shovels/buckets too. Along with other odds and ends for the house. Didn’t really go in; just poked my head in…
This morning we three girls headed to the beach, while Gino relaxed his back for the big fishing trip later in the day. Poor guy, his back went out the day before we left on the trip, so he was in some pain.
Isabel waiting for me to head to the beach.
This truly is a rare sight! Daisy is NOT a water dog; Dakota was the water dog. So to see her head out into the water all by herself was so exciting! I would have let her off the leash but with her whole foot issues lately, we were worried that the rocks and shells would cut it open again with her running around free range.
Baby crab…I saw several of these this morning clinging to the rocks and scattered along the ground.
Later that night with Gino gone and Isabel in bed, Daisy and I spent some time down by the water for a bit and then headed back up to the deck to sit and watch the sights around me!
Can you tell what this BIG guy/gal is!?!?!
Last night (the 7th) while we were roasting marshmallows, we watched as a bald eagle soared through the air catching it’s dinner for the evening. So AWESOME!
Tonight (the 8th), I was lucky to see it again and get a photo. Unfortunately, this is the closest I could get to it (0therwise I could have trespassed onto the neighbors property and gotten a closer view!). Earlier in the evening, just after I laid Isabel down for bed, I happened to catch 2 bald eagles soaring and locking claws just over the house! It was so thrilling to see this display…but I didn’t have the camera to get them when they were so close to me!
Down by the water, Daisy and I watched ducks and a blue heron out along the shore. Daisy was so fascinated by them, if she would have been off the leash, the birds and my crazy dog would have been gone! Also got to see what might have been a large otter (couldn’t tell in the dim light) cruising out in the water, maybe looking for a crab dinner in the bay!
