One of the fabulous things about living near the beach is you never know what’s going to happen. During a recent storm the water came up above the seawall! Ted and I had to make a run for it. Here’s Black and White, Number 33- the Statue of Liberty at Alki Beach in Seattle.
About susan sheldon nolen
It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
what a beautiful shot Susan – I like the splash to the right – and you can feel the two of you moving away…
also, speaking of Ted – I am going to be back later this month to give you my review of “Ted’s Day Out” – I got a little behind on my reading, but am getting caught up now.
have a great day 🙂
Thanks Prior! Ted likes to walk close to the shore line, but on that day, the entire walking path was underwater! He would have loved it…me? No way! I so hope you enjoy my little Ted Story. I should write up the back story to it. It has a special place in my heart. It was the last bit of writing my Dad got to read before he passed away. All good memories! Ted of course thinks…well if this conversation isn’t about him, then let’s move on! 🙂
Great photo, Susan. I didn’t know there was a Statue of Liberty in Seattle…
Hi Tom. Thanks! There is a small version of the big girl on Seattle’s only beach. The early settlers were planning to create a west coast version of New York City but the winter was too rough. They left Alki Beach after that first winter to settle in the Pioneer Square area of downtown. I was very surprised to find Ms Liberty gazing out towards the water!
That just makes me miss living in West Seattle. Love the picture.
You should stop by and grab a cup of coffee!!
I’d love that. Perhaps after the holidays if you’ll be around.
Let’s make that a plan! Be good to see you again!
I’m in! I’ll send you an e-mail after the New Year’s so we can coordinate.
