Salty Dog | Entry to @Axeman’s Seascape Contest

3년 전

The picture of happiness - a salty pup smiling by the Puget Sound. In this snap, Cash and co. are perched on a series of cliffs on Orcas Island in the San Juan’s.


This has become one of my favorite photos, and I thought it would be fun to toss it into the mix of @axeman’s Landscape/Seascape Contest - which ends today. (It's a recurring contest, so head on over to @axeman’s page for more announcements.)

There’s nothing finer than the smell of salt water, would you agree?

Getting out to these islands is a bit of a trek - about 5 hours from Seattle including traffic. That being said, it’s always worth it. Time moves slower on-island and it’s always an amazing opportunity to unwind and disconnect. The San Juan’s are literally the jewels of the Pacific Northwest and I’m always delighted when I get to spend time in this amazing archipelago of over 170 islands!


May all your adventures be accompanied by a smile as big as this one. Who’s your favorite travel companion?
