Along the Water

Along the water: a haiku

along the water
under the sun, between trains
beside calm waters


I just finished up winter quarter, so I was able to spend the day as I wished. Today’s the projected last day of sun for a while, so I opted for a waterside walk today. Edmonds is one of my favorite places, so off I went.

A Walk Along The Waterfront

filled with memories

Most of my life orbited the Edmonds waterfront, just north of Seattle. My grandparents lived here. So many memories of walking with my grandfather here, sometimes riding the ferry. He loved talking with everyone, hearing their stories. His gift of listening appreciated.

I took this photo at Marina Beach, along the Edmonds waterfront earlier this week. It’s one of my favorite place on earth.

Shot with my Samsung S9, I’m quite amazed at the quality of images that I get from my phone. I also wonder how much better my photos would be if I used a better phone, or, egads, an actual camera.

I’ve been using Canva for a lot of my photo editing lately, mainly since I do a lot on my Samsung S9. Since I’m spending a lot of time in front of my computer right now, it seems like a good reason to open up Photoshop and play in there. A quick little piece to show I remember how to use it.

Spring’s not quite here yet

Enjoying a lite bite at Edmonds’ Red Twig. A lovely cafe with tasty food, lovely coffee and a good selection of teas, it’s a favorite stop for many of our neighbors.
