Skagit Bay Sunset #3

July 25, 2014

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort along the shore of Skagit Bay in LaConner, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. It’s my favorite resort in the entire Thousand Trails system. My departure date is July 29th.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She has made her flight reservations to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

The bellow photos were taken about one week ago less than 100 feet from the motorhome…

A couple of days ago I drove the Bronco the 12 miles to visit the museum at Anacortes, Washington. It’s been about five years since my last visit and the exhibits do change. One of the things I particularly enjoy about museums are the black and white photographs giving us a glimpse into the past of days gone forever…

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She has made her flight reservations to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

While on my daily exercise walk around the park the other day, I stopped to say hello to the Manager…Kelly King. Kelly has been a Thousand Trails employee for 17 years and I’ve known her for 15 of those years. Kelly has worked in at least five different Thousand Trails parks that I’m aware of. This past May she ascended to the Manager’s position here at La Conner…considered by many (including myself) to be the best park in the system. She figures she has about 12 years more to work before retirement. Congratulations, Kelly!…

Back during the period when I worked at this park in the summer selling memberships (2000 to 2002), I got to be good friends with a previous Manager…Glenn Burzenski. Glenn was a very likable fellow and managed the park for 27 years…1977 to 2004. During 2001 and 2002 (my last year to sell memberships) I had urged Glenn to retire and hit the road. We even went out and looked at RV’s together a few times. But…he kept on saying…Gonna work just a little longer and save just a little bit more money. Sadly, Glenn passed away in June 2004 while I was on my RV trip to Central America. Sadly, Glenn never got to hit the road. Also sadly, I looked in my photo archives and do not have a photo of Glenn. However…because of his friendly nature and length of service he is remembered.

As you enter this park there is a beautiful carved eagle memorializing Glenn…

A watercolor version…

And the plaque dedicating the memorial to Glenn…

DSC01074

Nearby are some smaller totem poles by the same Swinomish Tribal Carver…

DSC01078

I always say hello to Glenn as I pass by the eagle. Rest in peace my friend…

The moral of this story is…retire and hit the road as early as you can, because none of us know how many days we have left to enjoy our retirement!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny day at 70 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with a couple of showers and 66 degrees.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She has made her flight reservations to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

I get a lot of nice comments about my photography. I shoot what I call…honest photography. In other words, I refuse to use any radical image altering programs like Photoshop. All I’ll admit to (and the truth) is minor cropping and perhaps a little color enhancement. Essentially, what you see is what I saw. Photography schools teach the best time of day to photograph is the hour just after sunrise or the hour just before sunset. The theory being dramatic side lighting is more enjoyable than midday overhead strong sunlight. It’s true…however most of my photography occurs between 10 AM and 2 PM…when it’s most convenient for me. I started photography in 1974 and was fortunate in my early years to have got some good photography schooling.

Today’s photos are a good example…shot in mid-afternoon. I walked along the beach of Skagit Bay shooting what I could find in the mid-afternoon lighting. Here are the last of the photos I took that day…
