Riding The Ferry

My parents moved up here to Washington from Mendocino, CA in 2003, the year I got married.  They live on a cute little island northwest of Seattle.  It's not far from my home, just a quick drive, then a short ferry ride and we are there within an hour.

My boys and I go over at least once a week while Alex is working.  We love riding the ferry!  Here are a few shots from this summer's rides on the ferry.

Summer is moving right along, school starts in a few weeks.  We're soaking up the time as much as we can.

Mendocino August 2015

Digital cameras are very, very intimidating to me; so many buttons and settings and modes.  I'm a proud manual film photographer.  But I've been wanting to become more adept with my digital camera.  For my birthday last month my husband bought me an upgraded lens, and it's awesome!  I took a stroll through my hometown last when we were visiting California.  I snapped a few photos along the way, these are a few of my favorite.  The entire album can be viewed here.  I edited these in Lightroom with the VSCO presets.  Enjoy!

(How many hours did I spend roaming the streets of this town, holding hands, kissing and goofing around with my boyfriend???  Such good memories.)
