Mt Baker’s cool head peaked above the ridge and overlooked Bellingham Bay. I’m looking forward to my annual trip to Mt. Baker in a couple weeks and to sharing the photos from near the top with you.

A fledgling robin was on our fence and on our bench near the river this evening. It was well taken care of by its nearby parent. You can hear the river and the parent and baby and see the baby in THIS VIDEO.

Another Amazing Tour de France

I am a cyclist, and though I will never ride the Tour it inspires me to climb my own mountains and reach for my goals. Here are my photos from the last day seen from afar.

The mother raccoon came by this morning with her three kits. I was pleased to catch this view of her in the water, but the real fun is seeing them all in action. CLICK HERE to see the video of them traversing the rocks. (Click HD and full screen to see it best.)

A Sixteen-Person Bike? And There’s Beer? – My Pedaling Good Time on the Cycle Saloon

My friend set us up for a good time when she talked us into the Brewery Tour on a crazy Dutch-invented multi-person cycling vehicle. Most of us pedal, a couple ride, and thankfully the Cycle Saloon folks provide a qualified and good-natured driver. What a hoot!

Breweries are literally a few blocks apart in the industrial part of Ballard/Fremont area of Seattle. These warehouse hangouts are full of art and great fun to visit.

And if you think the still photos look intriguing, check out the madness on THIS VIDEO. ‘I want to ride my bicycle…’
