Puget Sound Where

Puget Sound Where
Puget Sound Where,
originally uploaded by Mad Shutter-bug.
Each year for the past three, I've been invited to the Washington State Council of Perioperative Nurses, a state group of my professional association. I nearly always try to build some photography time into these trips; this is a series of shots from that trip. This first one is of one of those handy 'informational' map-signs the park services put up. "You Are Here."

I left my hotel after breakfast and doing some organizing from previous day's business & photos, and drove to the west looking for lunch and photo-ops. Following lunch, I found this small state park; this is the view across the Sound.


Pretty much only myself wandered the park that day. One fellow walked his dog along the shoreline, and another couple came and sat in their car. There's an area for camping back away from the beach, and some folk were there. Otherwise... could well be off in the wilderness.

Strolling along the gravel/sand wasn't so bad, but crambling along the rocks became interesting.


However, turning to the south, toward Tacoma, it became pretty obvious this location isn't off in the wilderness after all, but in an area fairly well populated.

Why the note now? Oh, just wanting to get some work up on the Internet Place.

They may have thought I was a hunter, Smudge. Which I was. Just using a camera.

It scares me that I first read this as, "Puget Sound Whore."

Now part of my mind is tied up on wondering what, exactly, a Puget Sound Whore would do.

Why, the same thing Peugot Sound Whore would do!

No, I don't think a Peugot sound is the same thing as a Puget Sound.

The latter is not as sharp but much bigger.

Do you know Alki Beach? We should go there for pics if the weather's decent.

Poop...I'm going to be doing the day hospital program on the east side while you're here, so I won't be able to meet up with you 'til 3 or 4 pm, though. If it's sunny we should still be able to get some photos in someplace scenic, though. I should email you re trying to make some plans.

Nope, don't know Alki, except through word of mouth. Yes, you should, though I've also figured (in my planning) that there are other things going on for you. :-)
