Photos of the Week: Aug 13

The bad news is that time flies. The good news is that you are the pilot.” – Michael Althsuler

Seafair in Seattle – an incredible show on a beautiful day. (Anyone that wants to see the Blue Angels’ farewell flyover video I captured see my instagram @wynneleon)

Also spotted at Seafair – a kayaker with a dog wearing googles. Nothing more Seattle than that!

Mr. D practicing his breakfast chef skills. Buzz Lightyear and the fire truck are there in case something goes wrong.

I don’t think I’ve ever gone to the Seattle beaches as much as summer of 2022.

This sign reminded me of Julia Preston who is always luminous but was especially so this week.

What lit you up this week?

  1. First, may I say that I LOVE the photos, especially of Mr. D and his buddy Buzz watching over him as he practices his breakfast skills. LOVE the Blue Angels—have had the pleasure of seeing (and hearing!) them during Naval Academy graduation week here in Annapolis. So thrilling to see! I also LOVE your photo captions (again, especially Mr. D and Buzz), and was delighted to see one about reflecting the light. Thank you so much for helping to spread the light, dear Wynne. You are a walking lighthouse!

    1. The Blue Angels are amazing, aren’t they? I’ve been lucky enough to be out on my brother’s boat in the middle of the course for many years – and still get a thrill every time!

      I saw that church sign yesterday and had to loop back to take a picture – because the first thing in my mind was Julia has to see this! You are indeed shining amazing light and I can feel it all the way on this side of the country!

    1. Ha, ha, Dr. Stein. Maybe he was trying to get an early taste of the food. 🙂 I’m laughing about the working hours. Yes, “to infinity and beyond!” for us all!

  2. So much fun! We have an annual Labour Day air show downtown that can be heard all across the city. It also signals summer is ending. Sigh.

    T and I are also making pancakes this morning. And he and Mr D have similar Buzz toys. Made me smile.

  3. Love the update – and all of the photos. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen a kayaker with a goggles-wearing pooch/sidekick, but I like it.
    I’m also wondering about the kayaker’s headgear. Is that a helmet with a sunshade? I know nothing of these things!
    What lit me up this week? The lovely WordPress community, and you, Wynne, for being the light (as Julia said). 😉

    1. That’s a good question about the kayaker’s headgear, Vicki. I think your guess sounds right on – that isn’t a common Seattle thing that I’ve seen before.

      What a sweet comment about the WordPress community. So glad you are wading in to join us!! ❤

  4. Thank you for sharing your adventures and lovely photos!.. Mr D becoming another Emeril Lagasse perhaps?.. what am I up to this week, only my heart knows the answer… 🙂

    Hope you and family are having a wonderful weekend filled with happiness and until we meet again…
    May the sun shine all day long
    Everything go right, nothing go wrong
    May those you love bring love back to you
    May all the wishes you wish come true
    May peace be within you
    May your heart be strong
    May you find whatever you’re seeking
    Wherever you may roam

  5. Kids always make life more interesting and adventurous. Love your photos. I’m enjoying my 2 year old grandson and the adventures I’m having with him. He loves firetrucks too…

  6. I love that parting question! The answer is right in front of me: A letter from author Dav Pilkey to my younger son. He has yet to open it, but I imagine the opening, too, will be a light-ful moment.
