The beach tonight

It's 8:35 pm
The sun is not setting yet. 
People are playing at the beach. 
High tide, walked to the end which wasn't very far and there was my treasure. A nice piece of molded ridged glass, washed well. The ferrys horn like a heartbeat when it sounds.

My reward for not finding much glass, is, 'found art', complete with trees and stones below. Enjoy...

Garden stuff and timber bamboo and stuff.

The timber bamboo grows slowly. This year 6 or 7 shoots came up.
 Some were very large in diameter. So only half made it. 
Maybe they need food? 
One of my little hand made birdbaths. I have 5. 
The birds love them.

MT Baker, North Cascades

Nooksack River
Tree of Life

MT Shuksan with Reflection Lake melting

MT Shuksan is the most photographed mountain in the world.
You'll see it on many calendars. 
The lake provides some beautiful reflections, once it's melted. 
I thought this melt was very lovely though. I was drawn to the melting ice 
The various  colors. In many ways it's still reflecting the mountain. It's revealing the same melting process.
Anyway beautiful.
 MT Baker is up the hill towards Artist Point but road is closed and it's snowed in.
The ski area is here near Shuksan. 
It's a favorite mountain for snowboarding.
