The summer of 2020 is either one that will be remembered for a long, long time, or one that we will all forget as soon as possible. I honestly don’t know on which side of that debate I’ll land. The only thing I do know is that the COVID situation has most definitely ruined most plans that I had for this year.
I mean I really don’t have anything to complain about — my wife and I are both working in good paying careers, and the pandemic has changed very little about our jobs other than how we are interacting with others. So far, (fingers are crossed) we are both healthy. But, even though we have been incredibly lucky through this whole mess, this summer has been a real big bummer. Sheri has done no horse shows; I have exhibited in two car shows, and we have traveled – nowhere.
So, I thought I would quickly post a photo of place that I really love and that always brings happy memories of summer. Here is the photo.
This is the Chittenden Locks in Seattle, Washington. These locks connect Lake Union and Lake Washington with Puget Sound. I took this photo a few years ago while in Seattle visiting some clients I have there. It was a warm, pleasant August morning. These boats are preparing to leave the locks and travel out into Puget Sound. The Pacific Northwest is one of my favorite places. I love the sea air, the mild climate, the fresh seafood, the relaxed atmosphere (OK, Seattle traffic not included), the water, the mountains – well everything. So this photo just brings me back to a happy time with fond memories.
I hope that this photograph gives you all some smiles and triggers some pleasant summer thoughts and memories for you. What are some of your favorite summer places?
Best wishes to you all and stay happy and safe, and thank you for visiting my blog.
