Well, I wanted to keep my car story in one place and I do enjoy recycling threads.
It has been unseasonably clear and cold here recently, so I've had the opportunity to drive quite a bit with the top down. Just awesome. Butt warmers, FTW!
This one is on Tacoma's glorious waterfront. That is Commencement Bay (part of Puget Sound aka the Salish Sea) in the background.
On New Year's Day, my son and I went for a ride towards Mt. Rainier. We only went about 20 minutes from home to get great sunset views from Orting (which will probably be buried by a lahar someday).
Better shot of The Mountain. Crappy camera phone. Foreground disstractions uncropped to retain scale.
But, I don't fly an airplane for a living or have a boat, and sunset is at about 5:00 pm.
