Clouded Leopard Babies

This pair of babies is about 10 weeks old. 
The Pt. Defiance Zoo is one of three U.S zoos
 breeding endangered clouded leopards.
The other two are the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.
 (part of the Smithsonian) and the Nashville Zoo.
Tacoma's clouded leopard cubs, born June 14,
brought the total number of cubs
born in the U.S. in 2011 to 8.

Gig Harbor Arts & Crafts Festival

Just a short ride away
across a graceful suspension bridge
that sits next to her newcomer sister
you'll find the lovely village
of Gig Harbor.

And if you're so inclined
you can browse the booths
of the Arts & Crafts Festival
sponsored by
Peninsula Art League.
Runs through Sunday,
so don't delay.

Cape Intrepid and Cape Island

The blue skies of the past few days
have abandoned us
for the time being.

But I'm hoping for a glimpse of blue
between the clouds
even though the weather forecasters
are talking white. . .  again.
