It's not Farewell

We've greatly enjoyed the opportunity the City Daily Photo has given us to step back and observe our beautiful city as a visitor might see it - noticing the people, places and details that we would otherwise pass by in our daily rush.

However, as our families have grown over the last several years that rush has become a stampede and it's all we can do to keep up with the daily reality of school schedules, homework and chasing after the next generation.  Rather than let Bellingham Daily Photo become a chore that must compete for time with all the others, Lizzi, Lorelle and I have decided to let it wind down for the time being so we can focus on our families.

We are humbled by the support and generous spirit the City Daily Photo community has shown our little blog over the last several years and would like to thank each of you for the time you have taken from your own busy days to swing by our blog for a visit.

Happy Winter Solstice

The Labyrinth Walk in Eastsound on Orcas Island.
On a side note, I'm sad to say that I can no longer keep up my half of the daily end of Bellingham Daily Photo.  I enjoy taking pictures and will continue to do so, but with two young daughters, I just do not have the time or energy to post daily.  Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you drop in occasionally to see what we are up to.

A Beach in Miniature

I just stumbled across this photo and have no idea where it was, but I was struck by how much this looks like a diorama of a beach.

On the Forest Floor

These mushrooms were poking up through the fall leaves on a recent hike in the woods.  I did a quick search online but couldn't find anything that looked like these.  Any mushroom experts out there know what these are?

Skywatch Friday: World of Color

On our last night in Disneyland we wandered over to California Adventure to watch the World of Color display over the Paradise Bay Lagoon. Jets of water and laser dance over the lagoon in time with music from many of Disney's movies combined with footage from the film projected on sheets of water.  A few fireballs are mixed in for impact as well. Well done Disney, well done.

Tow Mater!

We left Bellingham behind last weekend for Disneyland so BDP is going to follow along for a few days. 

Tow Mater came cruising down the street as we entered Cars Land in California Adventure.  Cars Land is new and its incredible.  You feel as if your actually standing in Radiator Springs. I"ll get some more pictures up over the weekend.

Katie's Cupcakes

Everyone needs a little treat sometime, right?  Recently, my daughter and I visited the cupcake shop in Fairhaven made famous on the Food Network's show Cupcake Wars.  They won the top prize and I can certainly tell why, simply yummy.

The End of a Rainbow

This fantastic rainbow greeted me as I drove down to the bottom of my street.  I scrambled for my camera and was able to capture one shot before it began to disappear.
