One of the trails to reach the 3.5 mile trail on the high bluff then ending along the beach at Ebey’s Landing is a one mile hike across Ebey’s prairie. Along the trail are a variety of wild flowers, tall grasses, wild roses and spectacular views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Olympic Peninsula and Olympic mountain range. It was a hot day on Tuesday plus I had to carry all the tools to sketch wild flowers growing along the edge of the bluff. I found a comfortable spot in amongst the tall wild flowers for sketching.
Thank goodness I remembered to bring my hat for protection from the sun but being that it was getting very hot sitting in the sun and the dry air was dehydrating the water from my paint pan, I left for the day. But the experience was being outdoors painting the fresh flowers in their true colors with bees and butterflies collecting pollen.
