The Long Beach Peninsula, has received eleven inches (28 cm) of rain so far in January 2022, which prompted me to stretch this week’s ‘Double Dipping’ theme to include a side by side photo comparison showing what our marshes at the Breakers look like now compared to last spring. Rain and flooding is our weather in the Pacific Northwest (Washington-USA) which fits right in with the theme this week from Becky – https://travelwithintent.com/
Photo on the left taken 5/17/2021, on the right 1/12/22.
On our first walk to the beach, I wore knee high rain boots and had only an inch to spare as I waded parts of the Discovery Trail out to the beach. Water in the foreground of the above photo covers what is usually bare ground where folks cut across on foot or bicycle. This image fits with John Steiner’s challenge of cell phone (or other such device) photos only. https://photobyjohnbo.wordpress.com/2022/01/09/cellpic-sunday-227
I love it when the sun is setting in hazy skies. Taken 1/12/22, here is another testament to the size of our marshes. I cropped out the lens glare which made me think it would be a perfect fit with the theme of Becky’s challenge: https://beckybofwinchester.com/square-daily-photo-challenge/
Cee Nuner has been a wonderful advocate for all WordPress challenge sites. The photo above, taken 1/13/22 fits her B&W Photo Challenge for this week: Birds. As Jello and I started our walk this morning, a pair of Bufflehead Ducks paddled furiously away on the marsh beside our condominium building. https://ceenphotography.com/2022/01/13/cbwc-birds-2/
Jello is all Beagle. Water is not her favorite place to be. On our return from the beach, she let me know she was not interested in swimming home! Savvy to the landscape, she managed to find some deer trails that led her into the dunes where she was able to avoid the swamp! https://stillrestlessjo.com
Wherever you walk, please continue to be kind and stay safe.🐾
