A very chilly morning greets visitors to Bayview Cemetery.

As we were playing down at the beach this weekend and throwing rocks into the lake, I noticed we had someone watching us. This beautiful eagle was perched high at the top of a nearby tree and surveyed the lake for his next meal. Even from high up, he was magnifying.

Wishing all of you a warm and happy Thanksgiving. I couldn't be more thankful for my fantastic little family. Tomorrow we will join even more family, and enjoy a fun and chaotic day filled with laughter and great food.

On a nice fall day, my family enjoyed a peaceful fall drive to see some colorful falling leaves. Thankfully, my husband grew up in rural Whatcom County and was able to take us on some back roads that I never knew existed. We crossed the Nooksack river a few times.

Lizzi and I ditched the kids last weekend and got out for a brief hike up to the Raptor Ridge viewpoint south of Bellingham. These rustic stairs are the beginning of the final ascent up out of the forested valley floor to a rock cliff that forms the viewpoint. The morning was cold enough that snow flurries greeted us at when we reached the top.

How do our downtown parking rates compare with yours? It never feels like too much for me, I can usually reach to the bottom of my purse for whatever is there to cover it. But then I rarely park downtown during the weekdays, usually just on weekends and they are free.

One last pumpkin shot for the end of the season. I think its a little sad the way some of left over pumpkins are just left to rot in the field.
On a side note, I turned in my ballot yesterday. I'm a little sad that there are no longer polling places in Whatcom County and I wasn't able to collect my little "I Voted" sticker to wear the rest of the day. I hope everyone votes today and proudly wears their stickers!

The Anacortes Ferry Terminal as seen from the beach. This ferry had just arrived from Sidney, British Columbia. As the cars unloaded, those of us waiting for our ferry to the San Juan Islands had to wait behind a locked gate as customs agents processed the cars and then swept through the ferry.

We took the kids to memorial park yesterday to play in the fall leaves before they are gone for the season. The park is centered around a memorial sculpture to honor local service members killed in the line of duty. It's kind of a forgotten park, tucked between my daughter's elementary school and the freeway, but it is covered in lawn and spotted with huge old trees.
