I love Bellingham

Picture by Edmund Lowe
This morning the ladies and I walked twice around Lake Padden, and I neglected to take any pictures. I went on Facebook to the "I Love Bellingham" page to find something that would show the beautiful place I live. This picture of the ferry between the mainland and Lummi Island, with Mt. Baker in the background, shows what a beautiful place Bellingham is.

Granted, it rains a lot, and the days are very short in the winter months, but the beauty is unparalleled. I am grateful that I live here, and that I can go outdoors in all weather, with the appropriate gear, and enjoy myself. Right now I am happily looking out the front window while sitting with my trusty laptop and writing this post. I am feeling lots of gratitude right now, perfect for this long Thanksgiving weekend.

  9. I've heard only good things about Bellingham, and so I'm sorry I wasn't able to get up there to take a look around when I was in Seattle in July. And of course you're there, so it must be cool!

  11. Dear DJan, that view of Bellingham is lovely. As I glance out the window, I see the 6 inches of snow we had yesterday. First we had a sleet storm, then a blizzard blew in with high winds, blowing snow, and deep chill. Is is quite lovely, but oh, I feel sorry for those who have to drive to work and be out in this. Peace.

I really appreciate your comments! If you see a word verification box here, just ignore it. I don't use the darn thing and Blogger is trying to get us to use it, I guess. Ignore it and your comment will still appear.
