It is an absolutely perfect day today, sunny, warm, clear skies with mountain vistas in every direction. I know in many other communities school has already started, but our kids don't head back to classes until after Labor Day (and Bumbershoot!), and our colleges don't begin fall quarter until late September. So we have this gift of time and lingering summer. Many folks head up to one of the islands to enjoy themselves and wring every last moment out of vacation. This is a place I love to go, the picture perfect little town of Coupeville on close-by Whidbey Island. So picture perfect, in fact, that a Sandra Bullock / Nicole Kidman film was made right here, using the fabulously delicious Knead & Feed Bakery Restaurant as a movie set, and repainting most of the vintage shops along the waterfront street. This family was taking in the view of Penn Cove and Camano Island from the deck. Then above their heads in a knot hole of the wall I noticed a family of another sort moving about. This fledgling is milking it for all its worth, still getting parents to bring it some grub. I thought of Brookville Daily Photo's Abe Lincoln (yes, he IS related to THAT Abe Lincoln) and his beautiful bird and backyard wildlife photos when I came in close for this shot. Hope you like this, Abe!
