Today I'm thankful for illusions -- shimmering, sparkling water reflections and shadows of my friends and me. These illusions mean the sun is out, and for that I'm always thankful.

Earlier in the morning, our bay was fogged in, and as the mist lifted and sun broke through it turned the fog a soft shade of pink.
An hour later, I was down in the harbor with the Feet and Forks looking at this incredible tree sculpture at Crescent Creek Park burnished with late-autumn sunlight. Another illusion -- Northwest animals of the sea and sky emerged from two cedar stumps.
The masterpiece is being created by Gig Harbor artist Jeff Samudosky of J.M.S. Wood Sculpture from the 20-foot stump of twin cedar trees that had to be removed because they were in danger of splitting. The 150-plus-year-old trees had been cabled together for years. Jeff is a world-renowned wood sculptor who is self taught. He took up carving after a snowboard accident ended his career as an outdoor adventure guide.

Have a colorful day
