I’m at the end of what has been a very busy week. You see we traveled all over WA starting last Monday. My Mother in Law came in on Sunday evening, which just happened to coincide with my Hunny’s last week of a month’s leave. So, we saved everything we wanted to do before leaving this winter for her visit. Monday we hit the beach at Westhaven State Park, and visited the little seaside town of Westport, WA. Where we watched some surfers, waded around in the surf and got sand in our flip flops. (click to biggify)
Tuesday we took the day off, and Wednesday we hit the POint Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Reston, WA. (Click to enbiggen, full photoset from Flickr is on the sidebar)
Thursday, we embarked upon a trip to Mt St Helens National Monument. I have never, even in Alaska, seen anything so Amazing. We drove to an Altitude of 4000 feet and crossed bridges that made my heart jump to my throat. The path of destruction is clearly visible for miles, and you can see nature still surviving and regrowing.
I think I printed out over 100 photos for Mom in Law, so if I ever become a rich and famous photographer, she can say she got my first prints. She left very early Saturday morning, and we all loafed the day away. Sunday, I redid my blog. Which is originally what I wanted to blog about today. I tweeted that I needed a new layout. And Jaedia The Lazy Sniper came to my rescue by suggesting the Mystique WordPress Theme. I liked it at first glance, but the more I worked with it the more I found to love. It has some lovely widgets and headers included, it’s easily customized, includes a lightbox effect so I can post thumbnails and not have to fiddle with a lightbox plugin, I just adore it! So come look dammit! And I found my lovely new header in this Article from Smashing Magazine.
