Calm, dry and gray until early afternoon. A good winter day for an outdoor work session. Temps around 50° F.

Took care of a few minor cleanup chores in the yard. Many more similar days and we’ll be all caught up.

What Puget Sound area grocery stores have the highest turnover (freshest dates) in the beer section? Need to learn more. Hate to spend $10 on a six pack & find out it’s not at its best.

Used to buy German Pilsner at Haggen. No longer seeing it. One of the most difficult styles to find.

Why is the can in the photo sealed?

Because sometimes, it’s windy here and an empty can will get tossed around during the photo op.

Alpine, Wyoming is the home of today’s brew.

Right on the Idaho border.

I’d reach for this one again.

Probably some of this going on too.

Make happy mushrooms at Fort Ebey.

 

For scale:

The wooden sign at Libbey Beach is gone.

Something with an industrial look has taken its place.

A Favorite Spot

 

A beer that brings little in the way of flavor or alcohol content.

Maybe just right for when Seattle temps push into the 90s. You can always add a kick with the tequila of your choice.

A little cooler closer to the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

First time out to a new trail today at Fort Ebey.

A couple of eagles watched over the beach during our visit.
