Inspiration Blue

 Glorious spring days in the Pacific Northwest are not only filled with green - they sparkle and shine with blue.

Blue Lakes - for taking a ride in a blue kayak

We were watching the kayakers, when along came a man and his dog

The dog knew just where to sit so he didn't rock the boat

Ahh, a nice ride on a sunny day

The blue of the sky - reflected  in the water, Mallards swimming

And eating

It's a good blue day

The water in the tide pools at Birch Bay reflect the blue of the sky.

Fairies dancing everywhere - making the water sparkle

We were driving along and I saw this in the sky - we ducked into one of the public beach access parking lots in Birch Bay to get some quick shots

The view must have been wonderful from this Ultra Light

Clouds in the background  - and then he was gone.  Not much time to get these shots - I was happy.

Beautiful blues today, JoAnn! Oh, that sparkling water is just so pretty! Fun to see the glider, too! xoxo

Beautiful images, the dog looks like it even has a life jacket on. Take care, Jen

I wonder if the dog ever dumped the kayak before knowing the ropes. Nice blue sky and water photos.

These are great photos. I love the kayaker and his dog. Very nice blues! Pamela

I am jealous of people that have such close relationships with their dogs. I loved both of my dogs, but I never had the close relationship some people have. Great shots all of them.

Looks like you had a had a lovely dy out, and it look like that dog has a life vest on.

Pretty pictures. I would love to live on the water year around. The farm I was brought up on was right on the Genesee River. I miss that.
Yes that Dog picture is my favorite.

I'd be delighted to have taken any one of those wonderful pictures! Great series, love the way you put it together with the blue theme. I'm really impressed with that kayaking dog (and the person in the same boat). If it were me manning the paddle, the poor dog wouldn't have a chance!

There is nothing like a sunny day in Western Washington. So sad that there aren't more of them LOL.

I especially like the shots of Birch Bay. That looks like a beautiful spot!
