Cuthroat Trout lunch

Matt and I were out taking pictures today of a seal that was hanging out on Ray Nash Bay….. when much to our surprise an Osprey dove about 30 feet from us and hit the water hard. Making this spectacle even cooler was that the Osprey came up with a decent size sea run Cutthroat Trout. We both were had our Nikon’s blazing. Here are some shots.. (most of these were taken by Matt...but I am not bitter)

Livin the Dream, take 2

...UPDATE since this post yesterday...OK, so the Mariners were getting killed by the 5th inning so we took our sunflower seeds and headed off to the Rainiers game...turned out to be a much better game even though we froze! Here are some shots..

Matt and I are hanging out together while the women are headed to Leavenworth for a Women's retreat. We are livin the dream sitting on the couch eating sunflower seeds and watching the Seattle Mariner's whoop (OK, we are losing 3-1) on the Rangers.... We practiced this tradition since Matt was old enough to eat solid foods....

Here are some shots from this afternoon from our deck and on Spadoni Hill off of Ray Nash Drive...
