Doesn’t seem like we’ve had much of a fall this year, in fact, the weather, with its cumulus towers and thunder in the distance, feels more like spring. Certainly the colors are here, but I just haven’t felt any of those cool crisp mornings you associate with the coming of winter.

Puget Sound

Just north of Steilacoom where this photo was taken, is the new Chamber Bay Golf Course and before that it was a sand-and-gravel quarry, with bunkers and docks for loading the gravel on barges. Prior to the golf course going in, I used to paddle up here specifically for the beachcombing.

I grew up in a wood cabin on Puget Sound in Manchester, Wash. My family taught me to appreciate the arts and the outdoors, and I still yearn for the absolute silence I experienced there when I was young. – Steven Holl

With almost no foot traffic the high tide mark was a treasure trove of collectibles; not so much these days, but the views are as awe-inspiring as ever. The sound was named by Captain Vancouver in tribute to his Third Lieutenant Peter Puget. I wonder what Puget would think of the place now?
