Enchanted Walk

Living in the Northwest, a simple walk on a local trail can feel like a fairy tale...

Every fairy tale needs a damsel in distress...enter Shelab...
 She's really a baby...and I mean in age and temperment.  She needs some socialization, as she is afraid of everyone and everything we see on the trail.  "Shelab, c'mon that squirrel won't hurt you."  Isn't she pretty, though?!  In the magic of the woods, she becomes "Beauty".

Follow this stream to a castle where it is said there lives....a Beast.

On the way to the castle you must cross over this bridge...
  I hear there are three Billy Goat brothers that help people over the bridge.  I don't know why.  It looks like a harmless bridge to me.

You might think these are logs, but don't dally to long in the forest or you might get tired and lie down....

Now I know this is not a "photography blog"  and I am not a photographer...but admit it - you loved the pictures!  Stay tuned, we'll be back to your regularly scheduled programming shortly!

Ok, ok, since you more...

If this isn't "Happily Ever After" then I don't know what is...
The feeling I have out on the trail reminds me of this quote:

"Every day I see or hear something that more or less kills me with delight, that leaves me like a needle in a haystack of light.  It was what I was born for - to look, to listen, to lose myself inside this soft world - to instruct myself over and over in joy and acclamation..." Mary Oliver


  1. I love the pictures. Appreciate you sharing. Blessings.

  2. I grew up in Woodinville and spent a lot of time in those woods. Some good memories in those photographs. Thanks.

  3. Just Be Real...thanks! Blessings to you as well.

    Flannery, thanks! I'm glad I could help bring back some good memories. We could all use more of those!

  4. Looks like a lovely walk. Spring is my favorite time of year for walks, and it is certainly lovely in your area!
