I’m not sure why, but the photo of the flag really speaks to me. It was taken outside a fire station right after sunset.
The swans we saw were amazing. I had no idea that swans (in huge quantities) migrated through this area. WOW!
The last photo is a Madrone tree. I understand (from my friend) that they only grown on the west coast and they are nearly impossible to transplant. This particular photo almost looks like skin with veins.
