the rearview

of the sweeney hotel.  They just finished tearing down a wall and a building back there last week.  Now once they clean it up and the covid restrictions allow construction workers back to work, they will proceed.

a beautiful morning

with the sun shining as we went down to the pier.  These two carers were bringing the elders down to enjoy the nice weather and the view of the water.  They greeted us and the elders were smiling in their wheelchairs as they passed.

a few months ago this path was being made.  There is a house back there and now it is private with no access.  As you walk the trail, you pass this new gate.

tight squeeze

A quick note:
A few folks have asked Shari and I to post some stories about our time living in Alaska. We are starting that now, on another blog. It begins with a photo collage of photos I took during our time there. In future, we will be sharing stories and photos about our experiences. Some of the stories are longer, so Shari has broken them up into segments. The photos are taken by me and  most of the writing was done by Shari. If anyone is interested, the link to the blog is here and the first post is here

theme day - photo of the year

I picked this photo for the kindness illustrated  by this woman walking an older man so he can enjoy being outdoors for a bit.  A walk, even a short one, can be so appreciated from a person who doesn't get outside much especially in these covid times.  I took this photo back in late July.
