Sound Bytes #2….”Sound Views from Anacortes”

April 14, 2019

(Photo taken from Mt. Erie lookout point.)

 

In “Sound Bytes (Intro)”, I explained how the idea for this Sound Byte Series was spawned.

I wanted to pair together and share the beauty of the Puget Sound, my favorite place, and the beauty of the musical sound of Lizz Wright, my favorite singer.

In the previous post, “Sound Bytes #1 (Seattle And The Sounds)”, I showcased the Puget Sound area around Seattle, and Lizz Wright singing “Reaching For The Moon”, (my favorite cover of all the covers that she does).

In this post, I share some views of the Puget Sound, from two mountain tops in the Anacortes area, where the Anacortes Ferry Terminal is located, and some views of the Puget Sound from aboard the ferry, while I was on my way to San Juan Island. It’s one of the ways to get to the San Juan Islands.

I also share the musical sound of Lizz Wright, singing ” I’m Confessin’ “, in “Sound Bytes #2”. I know you’re going to like it.

February 12, 2019

Sunday (February 3)

Last Sunday, I was at home just chillin’, in anticipation of a snow storm they said was on the way.

At first it was light, but in a little while it started to come down harder and bigger.

Then I got a “snow alert” from my son, Tim. It’s a tradition in our household. The first one to see the snow coming down calls the other one.

Let Them Talk in Vancouver, B.C.

February 3, 2019

“Let Them Talk”

From the title of this post, you might have thought I was going to write about some juicy gossip or start a rumor. But I don’t do rumors or gossip.

This is about a weekend trip I took to Vancouver, British Columbia, and about a song called, “Let Them Talk”, which I heard for the first time about three weeks ago.
