Here There and Everywhere

Sequim and Dungeness on Google

I know you guys explained in detail how to post maps. I know you even used small words, easy words, but somehow, I can’t make it work your way. I guess I need a workshop or something.

But I CAN go on GoogleEarth and SaveImage. It works for me, and I can use it here to share with you where the prior photos are taken on the trip to Sequim and Dungeness.

This is the map of the Sequim/Dungeness area. Dungeness is the spit up at the top where some of the sweetest crabs in the world live and die to feed our hearts and souls. If you ever get a chance to drive on the Olympic Peninsula, you will want to do so. It is not crowded, and the scenery is totally awe inspiring. There are Indian reservations selling Indian art, fields and fields of lavender, fresh fruits and vegetables, farms of all kinds, and views of the Puget Sound. Even in rainy weather, it is gloriously beautiful.

  1. I love the GoogleEarth! I think it’s great! My husband is obsessed with it! 😛

    About me visiting Kuwait is a long story!! Cut short; won’t be before 10 more years or even more! 😦 I might post about it some day, but not anytime soon!

  2. NoraCassandra – GoogleEarth is AMAZING. I have a book on how to use it, and I have barely scratched the surface. Can you see your house in Cyprus?

    I am sorry if you are not able to visit Kuwait for a while, but we will try to keep you up to date. 🙂

  3. One of the amazing things about Sequim is that it exists in the rainshadow of The Olympic Mountains. They get less than 15 inches of rain a year, which is pretty amazing considering it’s the Pacific Northwest.

  4. You are right, Earthling. Imagine, fields of lavender, grown in the hot southeast of France! I was surprised at how very flat it was, too, relative to most of the topography in that area.

  5. I’m glad you had a chance to visit Sequim. This is where I live and I was thrilled to see your post. I’m going to go and explore the rest of your blog.

  6. Welcome, Cindi. I think there are some lavender field photos here, too, from our trip there almost a year ago. What a glorious day! What a glorious place. Oh, and I love The Three Crabs!
