Trip to Lexington

Upon arriving at the farmhouse outside Lexington, KY Rachel's dad pulled out his huge jar of home made pickles and began making his famous bourbon balls.
Out the window above the kitchen sink, one looks out at the barn and the acres of rolling fields covered in white snow contrasting with the black fences that trace the contour of the land.
Out front, the bare trees cast long shadows over the frosted lawn and across the house.

Sketch of Bremerton's Harborside Fountain Park

A crisp Autumn morning above the Harborside Fountain Park in Bremerton, WA. My fingers were frigid despite the glaring sun over head. The fountains take turns erupting violently with water, shooting fifteen feet into the air, and then collapsing over the top of the fountain. The ferry to Seattle pulls in every hour or so and the small foot ferries to Port Orchard depart more often, taking passengers on the short dash across the bay.

Sketch of Manette Bridge

Twice a day the Manette bridge, east of downtown Bremerton, WA, has millions of gallons of sea water rush under its arches. Filling and draining Dyes Inlet with the rising and falling of the tides caused by the gravity of our orbiting moon. Don't get caught up in the current as you do not have a choice in where it will take you.

Morning fog in Bremerton

Not only is the sky still, noise travels softly, and people walk more slowly. The fog brings a light that is not often seen.
