Mother's Day weekend was all about the water this year, with two ferry rides, a hike around a lake and a stroll along the bay in Bellingham while visiting our daughter.

We watched Mama Duck shepherd her nine babies through the reeds while Papa fended off some encroaching males.
The next day, Mother's Day, we walked with throngs of other people on the boardwalk that runs along Bellingham Bay, where we saw bigger boats:

The submarine, center in the photo above, was being escorted by two naval vessels. Minutes later we turned the other way and saw a huge white cruise ship headed toward us, glowing in the sun.
This last photo has nothing to do with the water but everything to do with why we went to Bellingham for Mother's Day!
Have a colorful day
