These kind of sunrises only happen this time of year...makes it worth being such an early riser..this home was built for just this sort of morning.

24 Nov, 2008

 

Wow :o)

24 Nov, 2008

 

Beautiful.....

24 Nov, 2008

 

WoW, it looks like a painting..

24 Nov, 2008

 

I hope I can get a crimson sunrise for you all someday...they scream out of the east and jettison a strip of crimson red on the water that will knock your socks off...you have to be on the beach for it though and at just the right moment.....the first time I saw it, it was by accident and I have not been there at the right time again. That was over 20 years ago....I still think I will make it one day so keep trying...maybe I am asking too much to be gifted twice by such glory, especially when I have this much now.

Agree with Ydd exactly what I thought it was - a painting spectacular.Sure youll catch it again Cj if anything like me when you least expect it either no camera or battery flat !

Thank you for the encouragement BB...I will keep at it... :)

Thank you Gloria....We are lucky to live where we do aren't we.

Gorgeous photo Cat. Makes me miss the coast.

25 Nov, 2008

 

Keep trying Cat I know you can do better - I hope - I suppose it is alright if you can't sleep on the beach but where are the plants? I thought you prefered the beach to the mountains - we can't see the beach and it is a long swim to the mountains! Is there something wrong with your camera - the sky looks a bit too red! Truly Magical - makes me want to be there.

What you see is what you get GF...I am just above the beach here..trail to the beach is short distance down the street..not in favor of taking trail with dogs or alone..real live cougars have been found to abide there(honest truth)...I would not be swimming to the mountains...cannot get there from here by water...LOL....the dragon garden to be reborn is in the dark of this picture cannot be seen at this time of the morning...LOL..so the plants are there..and if you come, please bring your work gloves and a goat or two...much work to be done.

Apologies to you also Pollyanna thought Washington Pennsylvania a long way from Washington State !

Just for future reference could you add State to your addresses as google Washington doesnt mention Washington state.

Lucky YOU.....! This is amazing !

I just talked to a realtor about putting my home on the market...going to be closing Mud Cat after January 1....going to be having a going out of business sell for the month of December....have e-mailed my landlord for the store space to let them know that I want the lease terminated at the end of this month...It has been a long time swimming up stream against a very wild current..I am going to learn how to float down stream for a while.
I woke up with this desicion firmly in mind this morning...discussed it with my loved one's and I feel a huge weight is lifting now that I have come to this desicion...I am looking at some property with a small home on it tomorrow. It is next door to where Flash is, the property actually butts up against my friends property ..if I can manage to get that and have my horse and a garden...and possibly some sort of partenership with my friend to do some stabling and horse training & a tack shop..I would be very pleased...send me good wishes please and I am sure all will be well...xxoo's ~Cat

29 Nov, 2008

 

You are taking a big step and I for one wish you every success and happiness. Go, girl! I am glad you can see the way forward so clearly. Hugs. XXXX

29 Nov, 2008

 

Thank you Spritz...exactly the encouragment I need. Squishy Hugs & kisses...the kisses by the way are not squishy...eww...LOL..~Cat

29 Nov, 2008

 

Oh, Cat. Such a big decision to have to make. Good luck to you in your real estate deal. I'll have my fingers crossed for you that you get it. I'm sorry about your shop. It looks a lovely place. It's a shame that I won't be able to see it in person.
I hope your new plan for the horse training and tack shop etc works out. It sounds like that is something that would be right up your street!!! I hope it works out for you.
Sending all my good wishes. xxoo ~ Gilli

29 Nov, 2008

 

Thank you Gilli..I will miss all the people who have become such good friends here at my Mud Cat...I am going to be putting up the signs on the 1rst of December..it will cause quite a bit of upset amongst my regulars...I will still be in the area though so if you come this way you will get to come to a horse ranch instead.! ..LOL..could be even more fun! Thank you for your good wishes...xxxxxx's oooo's too! ~Cat

29 Nov, 2008

 

~so sorry Cat! I suppose it doesn't help that everyone seems to be spending less because of job and mortgage worries~if you feel that sense of relief then you are doing the right thing~no use banging your head against a brick wall as they say!
All good wishes for your next venture ~it sounds right up your street and if you can get the property next to your friend where Flash is, that sounds ideal! pity we all could not pop over to send you out with a bang!
love and best wishes
Arlene

You will be with me every step. How could I do it any other way!

Thank you FC...Had my first day of Sales went well...I sent an e-mail to a Seattle TV station...KOMO 4 news..they called and did an interview for their radio show over the phone and then the TV station e-mailed me...they are sending a TV crew to my store tomorrow morning to interview me....they interviewed me 3 or 4 times last year when the ferry dilema first began and now with me closing they are saying it is a compelling human interest story and it will be quite an inteview if I have my way...wish me luck ...I am an old hand at it by now but it is always a bit nerve wracking... ~Cat

Oh I'm going to get up early and catch you on tv CJ!
To let you all know I am going to Port Townsend the 15th & 16th of this month and I'm going to get to meet CJ and shop in her store!! She will get to meet my Bruce too! Excited!!! I want you all to know that I am going as an ambassador for all our friends on goY! I will be thinking of you all and I will be giving CJ all your hugs and best wishes in person! :)

2 Dec, 2008

 

It may be on the evening news Gloria...and am so looking forward to seeing you and meeting both you and Bruce...this is going to so nice..meeting my first full fledged goy member in person....! I am Excited too!...Hope my store still has enough stock for you to shop in....LOL...I don't know..maybe I don't...want it to sell but will be fretting as things sell out from habit...LOL...~Cj

2 Dec, 2008

 

~go for it!, Cat~tell it like it is!You probably wouldn't have to go if things had remained the same?

2 Dec, 2008

 

No..I would be fine there....economy and gas prices would hve slowed thing but nothing that would have stopped me...I was in this spot through another recession..slowed but did not stop..I was here with 911 ..it did not stop me...thourhg my husbands cancer and death...blocking up the roadway that carries so many peole from all over the worls is what did it..and the state, our city, the ferry systems have failed me ...I do not feel that I have failed at all. No I would have finished my contract,and sold my business when I was ready. Right now..I am just getting out while I can without further destruction of my financial situation.

Congratulations on your being a 'compellingly interesting human', Cat! Sounds like the ferry company have shot themselves in the foot - fewer ferries = fewer tourists = few businesses like yours = fewer tourists = fewer passengers. Of is that just my fuzzy logic again....?

2 Dec, 2008

 

Yes Sid they and the city, the state all of them..have gaping holes in their feet...I am disgusted with all of them..I have started a blog to try to keep from having to scroll so far will try to make the blogs work for keeping track of what is happening up until closing etc. sure appreciate your thoughts and support...~Cat

I feel like I am in the middle of a fascinating journey ! It's like reading a book, where you're desperate to turn the page to see what happens next !!!
