gettin' around

 For those who are interested, my friend John passed away on July 16th. Not from cancer but from an antibiotic he was prescribed. Please do the research before you take them.
My daughter Cyndra took me for a ride a few weeks ago to Oak Harbor here in Washington State. This picture is Deception Pass Bridge. The view is beautiful but the waters are treacherous.
 Another shot of the water and cliff side.
 This was taken at Fort Eby at the gun battery. It was a cloudy day but still beautiful. I love how the tall grass bends and sways in the breeze.
We had lunch at a nice  cafe on the water at Coupeville. Parking was non existent so we had to walk a ways.
 Cute little toadstool in my yard growing out of the beauty bark. Either this one is very poisonous or the mice haven't found it yet.
 I thought this was unique. When I first saw it I thought it had a bright yellow center but when examining it more closely I could see the sun was shining through the back.
 Here it is more closely.
 Three of my girls and I went to Wood's Coffee last week. We have done that a few times and it is so wonderful to have time with them. After the sun went down we came back to my house and had popcorn and a super visit with lots of laughs. The Lord only knows how much I needed that!
 Some of you may recognize the Lady Washington. She's a beautiful sailing ship and most welcome on our Bellingham Bay.
I haven't been blogging because I just haven't had the heart to do so. I will try to visit soon.
Love you all.

Beautiful pictures, as always!! Glad your daughter took you out for a little drive to ease the pain by looking at God's beauty and just imagining what Heaven is for them :o)

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend John. I do know that some medicines aren't good for you. A good friend of mine's mom is having some problems from what they think was taking gout medicine.

I had a very bad reaction to the antibiotic Avelox a few years ago. Do you know which antibiotic it was that did that to him? That is just so sad.

Beautiful pictures.

Hello dear Bev. I was just wondering about you today and thinking I should visit you, so I'm very glad you stopped by.
How very sad about John. I'm so sorry. I can well understand why you didn't feel like doing much of anything. It's takes a while to adjust to the loss of a dear friend.
Your gardens are looking lovely. I especially love that gorgeous pink rose.I wish I could grow roses like yours.
It's a shame you have such a hard time with slugs eating your lilies. Ours have been wonderful this summer in spite of the dry weather, thanks to the earlier spring rains.
Your clematis vines sound wonderful. My Jackmanii is just finishing up after a spectacular show.
I sure would love a few of those Fuji apples!
We had some welcome rain yesterday but sure could use some more.
Enjoy these long light days. I wish they could go on and on...
Hugs xox

I was shocked and saddened to learn of your friend John's death. He has been on my prayer list for quite some time. It is terrible when the intended cure winds up killing us. Glad you are moving forward and loved the pictures. Thanks for sharing them.

Oh, Bev, I'm so sorry to hear of your friend John's passing:-( That's really horrible that he died from the antibiotics he was given. Just goes to show how we're much too trusting of doctors, we just take whatever they give us!!

I'm glad you've been enjoying a couple of wonderful drives, you live in such a beautiful part of the country and the sights are just breathtaking. I must have been pretty close to you when I was in Bellingham, Washington back in the late 1980's...I was visiting my two older brothers in White Rock, BC and we had crossed into Bellingham to have dinner at a Mexican restaurant:-)

Love that "pirate" ship...I call them pirate ships all the time! lol She's a beauty! xoxo
