Wish I Had My Camera!

How can I explain the incredible vista my friend and I saw for a brief moment today?

I will try.......

Olympia, Washington is blessed with many waterways. If you look at a map you will see all these fingers reaching towards Olympia from the Puget Sound. The waterways are an asset to our city.

Elaine and I were taking a walk on the Percival Landing boardwalk in downtown Olympia. It is a scenic walkway interspersed with art with a glimpse of the Olympic Mountain range if you should be so lucky as to have a day without rain.

Today was one of those days. As we came to the view of the Olympics covered in snow, there was a break in the sky which created a pattern of light on the mountains. It was dramatic and exquisite. A couple of people had their cameras in hand and I wish I had had mine. We all stood there in awe and the sunlight danced upon the mountain range for a short period of time. And the show was over. Need I say, it was AWESOME?!
