A Washington state ferry coming in to the terminal.

Would you like to take a walk with me today through one of my favorites places here on Fidalgo Island, Washington? God's fingerprints are all over here! I took these photos this morning during a 2.2 mile stroll along what is called the Loop Road through Washington Park. This 220 acre park sits at the most western edge of the town on Rosario Strait just past the place where the ferries leave for all of the San Juan Islands and Victoria, British Columbia (Canada).

It is so quiet in this green santuary except for the sound of birds chirping, the seagulls calling and the waves striking the rocky shore. I missed taking a photo of a bald eagle coming in from sea to roost in his nest mistaking it at first for a lowly seagull (sorry seagull, I know God made you too!). Oh, well maybe next time. I also did not see deer today but we often see them grazing in the meadow.

growing by the shoreline.
A carpet of ferns. So many shades of green in the forest.

The 2.2 mile "loop road" takes you in a circle around the perimeter of the park. There are some great hills to give your heart a little workout

You are rewarded at the top of this hill with a gorgeous view of Burrows Bay.

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Thank you to Pampering Beki for hosting this each week! Everyone is welcome to join. To see how to join, as well as find links to other Fingerprint Friday posts, visit Pampering Beki's blog.
