sunset picnic

beautiful days here. unbelievable how the wild beauty of the pacific northwest becomes illuminated when the skies are blue. and how the misty rain always brings out this moody ethereal atmosphere. it is february, and it is spring in western washington. cherry blossoms are  blooming, we have sunny days with temperatures in the mid to late 50s and even breaking 60 in the afternoons. we took the opportunity of this great weather, early still that they can be awake for sunset (545pm is when it goes down). nick shared with the girls of the crabs that like to hide under the big rocks. veda loves to skip stones, or dunk them :)
