Kah Tai Dawn

Early morning at Kah Tai

Dawn comes at about 5:30 this time of year. Sometimes I wake up with the light and can’t get back to sleep. This time I decided to just go with the flow. I  grabbed the camera and headed down to Kah Tai Nature Lagoon to catch the first light of the sun as it popped up over Morgan Hill.

Duck Crossing

Normally I try to avoid photos of Mallards. The ducks are photogenic but become very tame very quickly. The ones in Port Townsend’s Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park will swim up to the shore, hoping for food. I have dozens of Mallard shots, so it takes a reasonably unusual situation to induce me to photograph them. I do like these two ducks framed by poplar reflections.

Picnic Table

Behind Dragonfire Video on the corner of San Juan and 19th Streets sits this forgotten picnic table. Before the video store occupied that location, we had Provisions Deli. On a lovely spring day like today it was a treat to grab lunch and eat it here. Looking west offers a delightful view of Kah Tai Lagoon.
