Good Afternoon, World!!! Right now, I am currently in Bremerton, Washington. It being Labor Day weekend here in the United States, I decided to come to Bremerton yesterday and I will be going back home to Seattle tomorrow. I decided to take tomorrow off as it is nice to have an extra day off from time to time.
I came to Bremerton because it is a Ferry Boat ride away and feels like it’s far away. I love being able to come to Bremerton for a couple of nights as it is a form of self care for me. It has been a form of self care for me since I made the active decision to be in active mental health and self harm recovery. In fact it was my grandma’s idea and she would pay for a couple of nights in a hotel for me because she knew that being near water and a couple of days away would help me even when I am doing well.
Even though my grandma passed away three and a half years ago, I still come to Bremerton as a way to recharge. In fact, I am really missing my grandma right now. I miss being able to call her up and talk with her. She and my grandpa helped my dad raise me. My grandma was very supportive of me and I am grateful that I am still keeping up with this self care tradition. Most importantly I am grateful that I have a job to be able to pay for the mini get away myself without needing to ask for someone else to pay for it.
Speaking of paying for my trip, my grandpa is taking care of my cat, Billie Dean as I am out of town. Billie is at my grandpa’s getting even more spoiled than he normally is. My grandpa really enjoys taking care of Billie. Billie also loves being spoiled by my grandpa.
Well it is lunch time and I am hungry. So, I am going to end this particular blog post so I can go eat and walk around the Bremerton waterfront. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! Today’s assignment or topic from the photography course I am taking through WordPress is “water.” While on my many walks through the trails of Cowen and Ravenna Parks I took my camera and took a picture of the tiny waterfall from a small stream also known as a brook. I just love all the greenery around it. I love being able to enjoy nature while being in the city at the same time. For those who are sight impaired, I have included a caption with the photo and hope that you are able use the caption to be of help.
Good Afternoon, World!!! Today’s topic is of solitude and I thought of the perfect picture from Christmas of 2017 in Olympia, Washington.
The above picture is from my hotel room I stayed at while visiting family for the holidays. As you can see I had a white Christmas. I stayed in Olympia, Washington as mentioned which is the state capital. You can see tiny bit of it three quarters of the way up on the left. So the solitude part of this picture was when I walked around the lake while listening to the sounds around me. I went back to the hotel room and had hot chocolate while looking out the window to the scene that is pictured above.
Thank you for reading. Have a great day. Peace Out, World!!!
Hello, World!!! When the topic of connect came up I thought to myself “well this is up for interpretation” and that’s what the assignment stated as well. I’ll be talking about how waterways are connected. Specifically, I will be talking about the Ballard Locks. Let me give you a brief history of the Locks.
Operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers, the locks were formally opened on July 4, 1917, although the first ship passed on August 3, 1916. They were named after US Army Major Hiram M. Chittenden, the Seattle District Engineer for the Corps of Engineers from April 1906 to September 1908. Its fondly known to Seattleites as the Ballard Locks or Locks.
The Big Lock full of boats waiting to continue on their journey from the Puget Sound to Lake Union on Memorial Day of 2017. The water is filling up to lake level as it was low tide in the Puget Sound. Shot is Looking toward the lake.
An empty big lock or at least empty of boats. No boats were needing to go to the Puget Sound so they shut it off to lower the water level to the low tide Puget Sound so the boats going back to Lake Union could get to their destination. This looking toward the Puget Sound.
Thank you for reading. As realize I love water. This is one of the many places that gives me peace. Have a great day. Peace Out, World
When I found out that todays topic to photograph was water I became ecstatic as water in my peaceful place. Its the place where I feel a sense contentment. Both the emotions of peacefulness and contentment are rare for me to experience which is why I love the water so much.
The above picture is taken from a hotel that I stay at from time to time in Bremerton, Washington. It’s just a ferry ride from Seattle. The hotel I stay at and the Bremerton ferry terminal are near the Bremerton Navy Base and Bremerton (Puget Sound) Shipyard. The picture above is of a sunrise over the Puget Sound. This picture brings me peace.
Thank for reading. Have a great Sunday everyone. Peace Out, World!!!
