Frye Cove, Olympia, Washington
How beautiful the Pacific Northwest is.
Last summer, I had quite a few chances to spend evenings "out on the water," thanks to a friend's move to a waterfront home.
She and I also did some exploring of the surrounding coves, bays, and inlets.
I even went out on a sailboat for the first time in ages, and learned how to passably paddle in a canoe.
I suppose if I had stayed in Olympia, Washington, the water would be a big part of my life.
Now, it's just an occasional, summery feature -- one that, for some reason, I'm missing today.
