ADDING SOME COLOR TO THIS DRAB DAY

A while ago I posted something about meeting Shawna driving her Grandpa’s old car with the big white wall tires. I had done that loop many times, but now I have named it the “Shawna Loop” and added a couple of short roads to it. This would be my route today. I knew of a photo for the day that I wanted to get for the challenge.

I started in mist again, at 8:45 this morning so to get home in time for the Storm (Seattle Women’s Basketball) game scheduled for noon. Turned out that the game got cancelled because there are ‘inconclusive’ Covid test results of one player. We can only hope that all turns out well, and we know that cancelling today’s game until more information is available, is the right thing to do.

Back to the misty morning. Today’s mist lasted longer than it had yesterday, and it was a bit colder, I suppose due to the overnight rain. I did stop to put on my ‘portable’ rain jacket this time and that warmed me up right away. Within about 45 minutes there was no trace of rain, but the clouds stayed where they were even though the sun tried its best to part them. Filtered sun followed me home, but never really parted the clouds until well into the afternoon.

Found a few more arches…

I know I showed this one for a different challenge in the past — ‘the Quonset hut’ — but this is taken on a different day for a different challenge ;’-)

I did get my photo for this day, but will wait to post it with others at the end of the month. But I WILL post these as they bring such great color to a dull day. 

There were other decorations at this house but were not very accessible to me as they were down some steps to the entry way. But fun things to add to my ride.

    Lots of great color!
    And, good to see the quonset hut again.
    From Wiki:
    “Hundreds of thousands were produced during World War II and military surplus was sold to the public. The name comes from the site of their first manufacture at Quonset Point at the Davisville Naval Construction Battalion Center in Davisville, Rhode Island.”

    I love all the colour – and glad you are getting some moisture. My dad says you can never ever have enough c-clamps… even on the side of a building, I guess!
