Drinking on a warm summer day

Wide 
Wide angle view of the Thursday Sailboat Races on Bellingham Bay

 These sculptures are on the edge of the bridge leaving Camano Island - drive-by pictures because there is no place to stop on the bridge - next time I hope to get good picture of the other two sculptures on the bridge
Cylindrical 
 Old water tower at Semiahmoo - a relic from the lumber mill days.  Now the area is a luxurious resort, but the tower still stands.
Feelings 
Having a chat with Grampy
*  *  *  *  
Mysterious 
A play structure in School House Park on Guemes Island - does it become a giant birdbath when it rains?

Weed 
The Wild Celery has gone to seed along the roadsides.

Joke 
A clever mailbox - built from odds and ends of tractors and lawn mowers

Pile 
 Piles of plates - let's eat
Speed 
Slow speed - fast speed

Night
 Night falls on the river

 Early night skies
Whatever You Want 
Whatcom Falls - the flow of the falls is about a fourth of usual for this time of the year because of the drought conditions, but still beautiful.  The falls are about 1/2 a mile from our house

An interesting combination of words... There seem to be a lot of creative sculptors in your neck of the woods.
