Hello friends

It's Friday once again.  Don't you just Love Fridays.
Even though I really don't work anymore, I always remember how
excited I would get when Friday rolled around.

 I am playing along with random five Friday once again.
Just some randomness that happen during the last week. 


The Campground has been pretty quiet this week.
The last couple of days have been cold and windy.
But I am not complaining after seeing what the rest of the
country had been going through.



We made it to a couple of museums this week and they are both right here at Ft. Worden.
The Commanding Officers House and the Artillery museum.
I really enjoyed seeing the Officers House.
 It's fun to imagine them living here back in the early 1900s.  
The Artillery museum was all about the Guns they used here at the Fort.
Something that I was not to interested in, But my hubby enjoyed it.



We also took a little road trip to a little town called Bainbridge.
On the way there we notice a street vendor selling these yummy treats.
She called them Lumpia.  They tasted just like an Egg roll to me.
So yummy.



We really enjoyed Bainbridge. Lots of cute little shops and cafes.
And while we were there we strolled down to the marina.
A cold but beautiful day.




It has been crazy windy here the last two days and we have been stuck inside a bit more
than usual, So this is what hubby has been doing to keep busy.
Kinda scary I know.

Well I do hope everyone is doing well.
And for those of you stuck in the Arctic polar blast I do hope you have a
little relief by now.

I got some exciting news yesterday.
My Daughter is letting me steal my Grandson for
a whopping 4 days.  Yes I am excited.

Till Next Time.

Hugs~

Hi Linda :)
Loving that leaf in the wirefence photo-and the beautiful house is so grand-I imagine it would have been quite a place to live back then.
Wrap up and stay warm my friend and enjoy your time with the little man:)
Hugs,Nessa xx

Always love your randome five Linda!:) I also like the leaf photo, and the close up of those pastries makes my mouth water.
Hubby did a good job with the little shirt, it made me smile.:)) Enjoy your time with your grandchildren Linda,...cos they grow up so fast.
Take care.

Lisa Graham Art said...

How fun you get to keep your grandson! Looks like you are still having an amazing tour. I always look forward to your posts and pretty photos. xo

Carol Blackburn said...

How nice that will be for you to have your grandson a whole 4 days. He might get the traveling bug too. Could you imagine a summer escape with him along? At least your hubby has found a good use for a dollar bill because there is not much else you can do with it these days. Safe travels!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Enjoy your time with your grandson! :)

S. Etole said...

Sounds like a fun four days ahead. The water looks so cold but maybe that's because it is cold here. Always enjoy your photos.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Nothing better than to have fun with grand kids!!! Love the origami $
And those treats look scrumptious. And the Marina image...I'm in love with that scene.

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

Beautiful photos to go with your 5. I love Bainbridge -- could walk and walk. Your photos brought sweet memories to me. Stay warm, enjoy your grandson!

Barbara said...

Blogger is having some problems trying to load my comment so trying again. Grrr. I was saying love these, especially the leaf in the fence and the Bainbridge shots are wonderful indeed. Gorgeous places you are staying and seeing while there. Have a wonderful time with your GD.

W. Latane Barton said...

I don't think I'd be too jazzed about going to a gun museum, either. However, the rest of your trip sounded really great. Glad you had a good time even though it was cold weather.

It's me said...

Your week sounds like it was a great one, Linda, and how exciting to have Myles for 4 days!!! I just know you will have a wonderful time.

Have a fantastic weekend, my friend. xo.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

These are beautiful!! I have had Lumpia before, and I agree they are like eggrolls! YUM!! And yayyyyyyy for the upcoming 4 days with your boy!!!

Sylvia said...

Beautiful as always, Linda, sorry you are experiencing some cold! Don't you think there ought to be a way to Hawaii in your camper? LOL! We are finally at a balmy, rainy 63 this morning...the 20's was getting old! Have a wonderful Friday...I am like you Friday is relief after a longish week even though I am no longer employed...notice I did not say work!

fantastic photos-you do, do your camera proud. One of the best food things at one of my jobs was having a group of Filipino women co-workers that brought in their version of the Chinese spring roll, they were as good as your photo! Plus having your GS for 4 days, what fun!

Audrey Pettit said...

Always love your photos, my friend! It's so fun to visit places I've never seen through your camera lens. A couple of my old high school friends now live in Bainbridge, so it was super fun to see your photo of the marina. SO pretty! And SO glad you get to steal your grandson for a few days. Enjoy!

Robyn G said...

Linda,

Glad you are enjoying your trip. Nice set of pictures today! The boats at dock is my favorite image.

Grandma time, yeah for you.

Our polar blast is past us. Yesterday was in the mid to upper 30s. Sounds like more nice days ahead.

Pride In Photos said...

I have Bainbridge on my bucket list...so I really loved the image you showed. I sure hope I live long enough to see it all. But on to more important topics...you get your grandson for four days...now that is a reason to celebrate!!

Kathy McB said...

Oh wow...I am so taken with that first shot. The simplicity of that single leaf caught in the fence speaks volumes to me!

Love the leaf photo! And I enjoy visiting historical sites. They are always fascinating to me. We are due for a bit warmer weather over the weekend. Can't wait for spring!

TexWisGirl said...

your photos are all beautiful. and the dollar origami made me smile. :)

Kim Cunningham said...

I love a Friday myself, even though I work at home! Just such a sense of freedom about the promise of the weekend ahead! Love your images, and the lumpia does look like a spring roll! I bet it was great!

Gail Dixon said...

Yay for grand kid visits! Nice image of the boats. Enjoy your weekend!!

Sarah Huizenga said...

Love that shot of the Officer's House.

Love that shot of the Officer's House.

Deanna said...

Looks like you have seen some wonderful sites on your adventures. And yippee your grandson for 4 whole days, how fun!! Love all your shots but the boats stole my heart!! Hugs!

Inger said...

What a neat name you have given your blog, I love it! The picture of the marina is gorgeous. Boats were such a big part of my life until we moved here to desert mountains. No water around here.

Ida said...

May I just say your photo's this week are exceptionally wonderful. So loved the shot of the Museum and the Marina.
I know "Guns" aren't my thing either but I do think it would be fun to tour the museums.
Origami art is fun (although I'm not good at it)looks like your hubby is though.
Have fun with your Grandson.

Rose said...

We are getting some relief from the cold...love that shirt your hubby made. And enjoyed your randomness...always fun to see what goes on in everyone's world.

Love that dolla-bill shirt! How'd you do that? :)

Gayle Price said...

All such beautiful photos Linda. Love sharing your travels with you and seeing where you have been and what you've been doing...even if it is money "folding"...better than money "laundering" I guess. How lovely to get Myles all to yourself for a while, I know you will have so much fun. Safe travels xx

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I am definitely happy that Friday is here! I think it is my favorite day of the week. Bainbridge sounds like a neat place. That food looks delicious! Yum! Hope you have a good weekend and have fun with your grandson :)

Davi said...

Cool photos love the lonely leaf stuck in the fencing! What fun to explore all the cool places. Oh what you lucky girl, getting to have sweet Myles for a few days. I know you will enjoy that time my friend!

Hi Linda, I always enjoy my visit - your photos make me feel as though I'm right there with you. Have fun with your Grand! (Buy some origami paper for that man of yours!)

Ros Crawford said...

Beautiful shots ... I love how you captured that leaf ... you inspire me to take photos ... What great news that you are getting little Myles for a few days!! I can see you smiling all the way to the UK!!

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Gorgeous set of photos Linda, telling of the ups and downs of your week. Looking after your grandson will be a treat to look forward to.

Becca said...

Glad you got over to Bainbridge Island again, we love visiting there. Hope you'll get to see it in the summer sometime. It's quite the summer harbor town! Hey, did you know that the town is actually called Winslow? The lumpia is SO good, our Filipino neighbors in LV would occasionally make some & share with us! Hope that crazy wind is over! I bet you'll have some nicer weather days when Myles is here! Chat with you later my friend! Cool leaf shot!

Becca said...

Just me again...tell Bruce I still have a dollar bill from years ago that my dad folded into a ring! I keep it in my jewelry box. ��

Bunch of Barrons said...

Love that first shot of the leaf! Glad you get to spend some time with your grandson! :)

Catherine said...

How wonderful that you get to spend 4 whole days with your grandbaby! I am sure you will have a wonderful time.
We had the freezer last week and today the snow is melting. Honestly.
Happy week Linda!
xo Catherine

Beautiful, beautiful pics. (as always!) Love the subject matter you choose, and how you edit them with filters (I'm presuming). They have a great softness.

Your hubby makes a mean dollar bill shirt! LOL
