Yesterday, I visited my dear friend and amazing artist, Sharyn Sowell and we toured the tulips fields in the Skagit Valley near her home. The sun wasn't quite shining, but that only made for better photos. Everything around here is late this year, so the daffodil fields were still in bloom, an extra treat. We've have so much rain this spring, we literally had to tiptoe our way through the paths to avoid sinking into the mud puddles. Hope you enjoy this incredible display of nature......the colors are absolutely stunning!

Last weekend my daughter Amber came home for Easter with her boyfriend Carl. The weather was perfect, and the tide low, so we headed up to Dungeness Spit. It's my favorite place to hike and I was surprised at the wide expanse of sandy beach. We walked out to the lighthouse, which is a short 5.5 miles :) It was sunny and warm, with gorgeous views of Mt. Baker and the Olympics. The sign at the end of the beach reads "welcome to serenity" and I couldn't think of a better name for this heavenly place.
