Respite from the blistering heat of another summer day where everything moves slowly, even the sun as it lingers on the horizon before it melts into the edge of the sea.
High tide laps lazily against the boulders and Slate blue waves ripple in the sunset shimmer
The schooner Zodiac plies slowly along in the last moments of daylight
Framed by Lummi Island she is majestically poised for a perfect sunset
The breeze rewards her crew with perfectly filled sails as seagulls loop and dip along the shore
Speedboats are the only quick moving thing as they race for the harbor as a fishing boat moans and rumbles along the shore
Hazy thin layers of far away forest fire smoke hang over Orcas Island creating a mysterious mood over Mt. Constitution’s towers
And filters the sunset into an artistic filtered hue
Another beautiful, lazy summer evening on Bellingham Bay.
