A New Friend


This weekend I took a little trip
to Whidbey Island for my cousin's wedding.
She got married (for the second time)
on Independence Day.

How's that for irony?

I stayed overnight in a little bed and breakfast
in Coupeville, Washington called The Blue Goose Inn
where I found a new friend.

He's a little flashier than the guys
I normally meet.

Aww. What a handsome guy!

Meri, you might like to read a post I did on the Sultana back in April. I had two ggg uncles who were killed in the blast.

I do like a guy with confidence. He looks like he has some to spare.

Hi Meri

when I see a photo like this I am in awe - thinking about why nature requires this little fellow to be so bright and beautiful - isn't it amazing...

a great capture Meri,

Happy days

nice macro! Professional photography word for close-up which should be crystalline clear while the background is soft and muted. So there you go!

The Inn sounds quite good, too!

Meri, did you get my email?

Tracy said...

oh how i love the gold finches. one has been visiting our neighbor this week. makes me so happy.

in indiana, they would visit the feeders all the time. so having one here, seeing one visiting you here, feels like a piece of (the best of) home...
