Take A Hike!

Another goal for 2011 is to hike 10 Olympic Peninsula trails.

Since all/most of the hiking will be done with Jackson, I’ve been trying to stick with some of the shorter/easier trails in our area.

Finished Hikes:

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir

Dungeness Spit

After an afternoon of berry picking, Jackson, Becky and I drove over to Dungeness Spit.

It was a beautiful afternoon!

He LOVED the waves 🙂

I’m determined to take the 5 mile walk out to the lighthouse that sits at the end of the spit… Someday.

One of Jackson’s favorite new books…

Inspires a great day at Graysmarsh Farm!

Let’s get picking!

“Under the bridge

And over the dam

Looking for berries

Berries for jam”

“Raspberry rabbits

Brassberry band

Elephants skating

On raspberry jam”

“Mountains and fountains

Rain down on me

Buried in berries

What a jam jamboree!”

Bainbridge Island Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale

In the end, though I was tempted to buy a globe and a vintage bicycle, we decided not to bring anything home with us. Maybe next year 🙂
