We are building an “urban” chicken coop in our back yard in order to have fresh eggs. Beginning with a frame. It took a whole day just to lay the bottom frame. It also was unusually hot for the Kitsap Peninsula.
Coop Frame Part 1
Finished frame, with coating of stain and galvanized steel mesh.
The summers in the Pacific North West are quite short. However, there are indeed quite beautiful as well. I was on a walk the other night with my fiancee and our two Boxers and I brought along the camera with the intention of taking photos to some of the spring/summer mix flowers native to the Western Washington area. This place is alive and blooming in May, mostly with Rhododendrons and other types. I have posted some of my own photos as well of the native flower called a Fox Glove. It actually has a poisonous stalk if you touch it and then eat foods with your hands, so make sure if you have these flowers, to wash your hands well if you touch them. I also have taken photos of my roses as well. Enjoy!
During late April, we decided that we would take a sunny side trip on a beautiful day to Port Townsend. Port Townsend is a Northwest Point where the Puget Sound meets the Juan De Fuca Straight. It was a beautiful sight. Here are some pictures I have shot from that day. Trying to share the beauty of this place.
Besides the light house and the beach there is also a nice little town with a boardwalk that you can check out while you are there. It has shops and quaint little eateries.
P.S. We are having our wedding on July 28th, 2012….be prepared for some awesome wedding photographs from Albany, NY.
Hopefully from there we will visit Cape Cod, Mass. in late August, early September and I will take some fabulous pictures of my favorite place in the whole world.
