Outdoor Wednesday & Two Birthdays
I'm participating this week in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. Check out all of the gorgeous posts and link up your own if you have something Outdoorsy to share! This week I am going to share the awesome sunset we witnessed this 4th of July. These photos were taken at Brown's Point Lighthouse Park in Tacoma, Wa.
When we arrived the sun was still pretty high and there was a "Sundog" in the sky..see it to the right of the lighthouse? It looks like a little bright spot with a rainbow.
This was taken higher up the hill near the back of the Lighthouse Keeper's cottage, peeking through the apple trees.
As the sun began to set I knew it was going to be a gorgeous one.
There were just enough clouds to catch the colors.
I love the swirl in this one. Those are the Olympic Mountains you see in the distance.
When the reds started the sky looked like it was on fire! There was a big ship parked out there with it's lights twinkling.
It was the perfect evening..not hot but not too cool as it sometimes is near the water.
Today is a very special day because two of my best online buddies are celebrating their birthdays!!!!! Jayne is spending her birthday enjoying the sun in Florida. Check out her sweet blog A Grain of Salt when you get a chance! Carol spent her day cooking for a bunch of kiddies at summer camp....trust me..you'd love to be a kid in Miss Carol's cooking class! Go take a peek at her blog, There's Always Thyme to Cook to see what she's been doing in the kitchen. Carol and Jayne, here are a couple of banana splits to help you celebrate!
Jayne, I see this one as more your style (and Randy's). Classic and Timeless, and pretty as a picture!
Carol..this ones for you (and me). A little more over the top with a lot going on....and slightly melting....but oh so good!
Hope everyone will join me for more ice cream at the Ice Cream Social that I'm hosting here on my blog this weekend (July11-12th). Anything ice cream related will fit right in! Mr. Linky will be up on Friday night.
I'd also like to make mention of the cool & cute Cake Plate Give Away at Semi-Psycho Baker's blog. Go check it out...I know she'd love to have you visit!
