Ocassionally we find hidden coves along the Washington coast and my mind always drifts toward, “If only we could stay for a spell…”

Usually I envision myself perched on a rock, drawing or painting my surroundings, something I never take time for. At Dead Man’s Cove, I imagined myself taking up poetry writing. Such an ominous name begged for words. 

There’d be so much time, no distractions…

Then hunger called, and the kids remembered we had a yurt waiting for us and we would build a fire.

Goodbye, friend.

    Beautiful pics. And wonderful writing. Amazing how these old names stick, though the dead man himself is long forgotten…

    This is an area of the country I’ve always wanted to visit :)
    I know what you mean about wanting to linger a while a particularly beautiful places and write, sketch, or just meditate for a while. We so seldom get a chance to do something like that…
