Washington State International Kite Festival

The beach and the sky are both filled with the most colorful kites at the annual WA State International Kite Festival in Long Beach.  This photo of a handful of the Revolution style kites as the fliers get ready to beat a world record with over 80 Revolution kites in the air flying in formation.  It was the most spectacular sight!

Water Lillies

There are some absolutely beautiful gardens in Oregon near Eugene.  Their ponds were full of blooming water lillies which reminded me of being at Monet's Garden outside of Paris.  The garden looked just like the paintings he is so famous for.

The sight of these swans in a Pond near the Columbia River was just so beautiful this early April Morning in Oregon.

Cherry Blossoms in Bloom at UW campus

The sight of the Cherry Blossom trees on the campus of the University of Washington is just breathtaking every April.  The entire mall between the buildings was just soft and pink with the blossoms from the very old stately trees.

Standing on One Leg

I didn't even realize this seagull was standing on only one leg when I took the photo.  I know that I practice balancing every morning on one leg and it can be a challenge.  When I look at the stick this gull has for a leg and the size of his body in comparison, it appears to be quite a feat.
