Peace and sunshine

Strong winds overnight blew out the clouds and brought blue skies to Gig Harbor today, along with a Peace Bus. The Feet & Forks struck some poses by the bus this morning during our walk through the harbor.

We stopped at this peaceful viewing spot over Crescent Creek, where recent restoration has succeeded in taking the creek back to a more natural state.

Back home, the sunshine still held and I took more photos of colors glowing in the low fall afternoon light. Our tomatoes continue to ripen, yielding bowlful after bowlful every day. 

"Nature's peace will flow into you
as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

Have a colorful day

The peace bus is cool! I wonder if someone lives in it...

We wondered that, too. The back windows were all covered.
