Suquamish

Suquamish

I love living in the Pacific Northwest, but not so much when it is gloomy and raining. I love when the sun comes out, I appreciate it even more. The sunrises and sunsets are absolutely incredible. Note to self, I really need to make an effort one of these mornings to capture a sunrise when it isn’t raining either digital or film, but preferably film <wink-wink>.

Last summer, my husband Joel and I took the Edmonds-Kingston ferry and drove to Suquamish. What an absolutely quaint picturesque town. I don’t know what gave us the idea to go since it was quite a jaunt to get there from where we live, but what amazing scenery.

I moved here about 23 years ago and never knew a place like this existed. Growing up in Southern California, it was a constant of third stage smog alerts, cookie cutter nuclear family homes, and overall different quality of life. I digress…

Joel and I are driving through the Kitsap Peninsula, the weather is perfect! We stopped to dine for some delicious food at Sully’s Bistro Bar.  Sitting out on the deck looking at the peaceful water and boats drifting by made me want to know more about the Suquamish Tribe and their rich culture of Seattle and decided to venture to Chief Sealth’s headstone, whom the city was named after, but not before walking our dinner off by the dock where the crabbing was in full swing.

I am so glad I brought my Rollei loaded with Provia film and captured the work it takes for this feast!
