Nature can surely frame a pretty picture, and last Sunday, friends and I discovered the subtle beauty of one place where each step afforded a new work of art: Fern Cove and lower Shinglemill Creek. This chartreuse leaf caught the eye and imagination of my friend Mary Ann and lead me into the cold creek to catch a closer look and try to capture its artful pose. Nature cooperated handsomely.
Fern Cove, Vashon Island (low tide)
The Vashon Park District just completed the restoration of the Belle Baldwin House , which guests can rent weekly. The 1912 house is located on the beach above, about 40 feet to the right of the driftwood.
