Pikes Peak As Seen From Our House

Wednesday, May 29, 2019


Here's a Skywatch Friday photo from a recent visit to downtown Boston.
And here's a bonus photo of the 15 inches (38 cm) of snow we got at our house here in Colorado last week.

Lake Ashi

After visiting Mount Fuji, our tour took us to Lake Ashi.
The setting was gorgeous and there were some interesting ships on the lake.
We took a cruise, but on a smaller boat.
The beauty was uniquely Japanese.
Next week I'll show you the final sights from this tour, when we went up a mountain.

New York Sunrise (2)

Here's another Skywatch Friday shot of that spectacular sunrise over New York City, taken when we flew through Newark.

Sandwich, Massachusetts

The town of Sandwich, Massachusetts is famous for its boardwalk.
Settled in 1637, it's the oldest town on Cape Cod.
The boardwalk goes over this inlet, and the area has a unique beauty.
This lovely beach is at the end of the boardwalk.
We didn't spend long here because there was rain on the way.
But I'm glad we made the small detour to see it.
We certainly don't have terrain like this here in Colorado!

Hyannis, MA

We recently spent a couple of days on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. We stayed in Hyannis, a coastal town on the south side of the Cape.
We spent a little time at Kalmus Beach as we don't see things like this in Colorado.
It was quite cold and very windy so we didn't spend long there, but I did take a few photos.
Despite the weather I enjoyed the scenery  here.

Studious Laika

Even when I read, little Laika loves to hang out. Socks is right behind her too!

Peak Moods (16) - Lovely

Peak moods is my series of photos of Pikes Peak as seen from our front porch. This shot was taken on Friday, after a couple of cold days. We even had some May snow flurries at our house!

Mount Fuji (2)

At the fifth station where the road ended we found the Fujisan Komitake Shrine.
As you'd expect it was beautiful and well-kept.
There were also some lovely views from this area.
As you can see the clouds were moving in. From here it was off to another scenic area, Lake Ashi.

New York Sunrise

We flew through Newark Airport on the way to Boston recently, and the very early flight rewarded us with this spectacular New York sunrise as we were waiting to board. The tall building must be One World Trade Center.
