My Year In Pictures: August Week 2

My photos this week are a fun blend of hot colors mixed with cool mountain air and ocean breezes.  It’s finally started to feel like summer again even though there’s a heat advisory in place we’re spending as much time as possible outdoors, enjoying every minute.

Sunday afternoon we tried to walk on this pretty Edmonds beach but the slippery green seaweed was just too much so we turned around, bought some ice cream and explored the marina instead.  Monday’s photo was a surprise when a plant we’ve had on our deck for years suddenly decided to flower and Tuesday I stopped in front of this dramatic outdoor mural to capture the mountain peak.  Wednesday was Ryan’s final Orthopedic appointment and the official word that he’s truly healed from his January injury.  Yay!!!  Thursday is a close up of these lovely flowers from John celebrating our anniversary and Friday I learned the Vans shoe company is celebrating their 50th Birthday this year.  I think Ryan needs a new pair as part of his back-to-school wardrobe. 🙂  Saturday evening I only had to look up for inspiration and this was my view of the sun through our umbrella.  Hot August nights indeed.

I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest adventures and if you’d like to follow along in real-time don’t forget I post my daily photos on InstagramTwitter and Facebook.  If a once-a-week (or two) blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.

  1. hey – hot August summer nights here too – love the Umbrella shot – and vans turn 50? wow – I like the style pictured here – when we lived in San Jose CA – I went to the vans outlet a few times and once found some silver skip ons for me – bought two pair and had them for years – anyhow – have a nice week !


    1. You’ve been hotter than us, Y but tonight is just about perfect here. 🙂 I had a hard time thinking about Vans being 50 too… We usually have at least one pair in the house and silver sounds like a totally fun color!

      1. yes – we have been hotter -but seems the summer heat is widespread – oh but tonight is a little better here as well!
        and my silver Vans were actually kinda ugly – not the typical slip ons – they looked like they had two straps that opened – but were slip ons – and think they were discontinued – but the same vans quality was there – even if the design style flopped! and one of those pair were garden shoes for a while – funny the items we remember – 😉
