The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

Can you guess what the above image is? You normally wouldn't see these creatures in this form. They are even less recognizable because we were at the tide pools on a cloudy day. Both of these images are very monochromatic for that reason. 

These are sea anemones. The name "anemone" even made the "Most Beautiful Words in the English Language" list. Normally you see anemones as beautiful flower-like creatures in an underwater setting. The above images show the anemones as they appear in their shrunk-down state when the water has receded from the tidepool.

Because of the cloudy skies, the full array of color is absent in the above tide pool image, but if you look carefully you can see that the anemones are turquoise in color. I hope we have sunny skies for our future treks to Point of Arches.

Have you seen my other blog, Bron Smith's Flights of Fantasy?

Also, I was able to reach him in the baby bassinet quickly
when he awoke making it less of a distraction to my husbands sleep as
he unfortunately had to be up by 4:30 am. You can choose to purchase complete infant bedding sets,
which include the fitted sheet, quilt and other accessories to enhance the beauty of the room.
A toddler bed is often used when the baby gets a little bigger.
