In Celebration of Earth Day

Sunset over Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound
In commemoration of Earth Day, 
I want to share with you 
the beautiful sunset 
over Puget Sound, here in
the Pacific Northwest - Washington State. 

Vashon Island Ferry along Puget Sound in WA State
Earth Day was started in 1970. 

20 million Americans took to the streets
to rally for a healthy, sustainable environment.

The 1st Earth Day led to the creation of the
United States Environmental Protection Agency
and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water,
and Endangered Species Acts. 

You can read about the history
of this movement Here

Washington State Ferry disappearing across the Sound
Earth day is now celebrated
in 190 countries around the world. 

Seeking a healthy environment to raise 
a family, we moved to Washington State in the early 80's. 

Washington State is known for its environmental 
activism and pristine beauty,
but like all places on Earth, 
it takes each and every one of us
to care for this beautiful place
we call home. 

These photos were taken at Redondo Beach
last weekend. 

Thank you for coming along with me,
Dear Friends
to enjoy the pretty sunset 
along Puget Sound. 


Wishing you lovely sunsets, too, 
as we celebrate this special day 
honoring our beautiful home.
