The late harvest grass
Basks in the Washington sun
Autumn is coming... #fivesevenfive #poetryguy

  • This photo does not adequately capture the beauty I experienced this weekend. Not only are the San Juan Islands home to some of the most awe-inspiring horizon lines and landscapes, but they're also home to Mother Nature's celebrities-- #orca whales. Seeing these magnificent creatures up close in the wild was something I will never forget, and will serve as a constant reminder that we humans have a compulsory responsibility to SHARE this planet and RESPECT all life. Huge shout out to J Pod for showing us what freedom really looks like, and what family really means. #sanjuan #whalewatching #orcas
