Flyover country......

8:29 am - Thursday - August 20th - Coupeville, WA - 63° F, 84% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the east by southeast.....partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 70° F.  A small chance of rain today, however, it rained most of the night, and early morning.  The view this morning.....↴


......on this day in 2013 we were in Salt Lake City, UT attending the wedding rehearsal dinner for my brother's (Dwyer) daughter Ingrid.....here I am with 3 of my 4 siblings......↴

Left to right: Philip, Hilary, moi, and Dwyer....the father of the bride

For our second walk in as many days we walked out the back of the property and up to Morris Road to do a 1 mile loop.......


....it wasn't long, but it involved a lot of up and down.  We spied a very cool tree house along our walk path.....






....and an interesting chain saw sculpture of what is either a small scale orca, or a full size dolphin.....



....we finished with the long climb up Bob and Karen's very long, very steep driveway......

 
......once we were back home I got dressed in my weed whackin' clothes and spent another couple of hours cleaning up that same long, steep driveway.....


....I now have about 1/2 the driveway cleared, as well as the lower parking area, and sidewalk, as well as all the long grass cleared.....I should be able to finish the driveway Thursday, or Friday....depending on the rain....


.....about mid afternoon after I went out to the 'Lido Deck' to read jets from the nearby Naval Air Station Whidbey Island began to practice 'touch and go' maneuvers, which took them right over Bob and Karen's property.  TLE captured this video......


.....this went on with one pass after another for over an hour, and the sound was deafening!

Around 6 pm we walked down to Bob and Karen's rear patio for snacks, and drinks, then retired to the deck for our first fire of our 2020 stay.......
