Morning on Discovery Bay


Our family spent Thanksgiving with our daughter's in-laws who live on Discovery Bay in Washington State, right across the bay from Port Townsend, in such a lovely setting, as you can see from my sketch. I cherish my memories of waking up very early when the light was just beginning to separate light from dark, when all the world was in silhouette, and all was quiet. I was told that there's a single loon living there, one who's lifelong mate has died. I've felt sadness in the call of the loon, and especially with this one who's now alone for life.

  3. Beautiful Jo.

    I love that time of day as the light begins to chase away the darkness and the beautiful sights are revealed.

  4. Oh goodness ... this is just so beautiful! I love nature, and the quiet reflective times in it. This watercolor is so cool the way it appears to have the binder spiral built in.
