Friday Feets - Trav's Walk-about Adventures

Posted: Friday, May 08, 2009 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to Chapter 3 of my new feature. I'm on a quest to fight the crippling effects of chronic pain from an old knee injury by getting out and walking. You can trace my journey by clicking here.

Some days, just turning my head from my computer screen will earn me a glance at something amazing. The other day it was the sky that caught my eye. So I walked over to the pier

I love how there are different textures to the clouds. They can be wispy or puffy, all in the same sky.


  1. travis those are beautiful!

    sometimes I can just sit and watch the clouds change...sigh

  1. Thom says:

    Isn't it amazing what the sky can do with clouds added in. Beautiful Travis

  1. Those pictures made my feet stop hurting!

  1. Bond says:

    You have a beautiful place to enjoy while at work.

  1. Marsha says:

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    Ocean & blue skies will always put a smile on my face :o)
    Have a great weekend, Trav!

  1. barb says:

    How wonderful to have such beautiful views within walking distance, Trav! I am always amazed how there never seems to be the same sky twice! Happy Weekend!

  1. Jeni says:

    Loved these pics, Trav. Thank goodness for bloggers like you and many others as I am getting a royal grande tour of the world through the lens of many cameras!

  1. Linda says:

    Clouds are amazing things, aren't they? They look like they should be solid and yet we know they aren't but don't you just want to go up and be able to sit on a few and watch the world from an angel's view?

    Great pictures and I'd have taken a walk to the pier myself with that kind of view to look at!

  1. Lana will love these shots. She's a big fan of clouds, and we have amazing ones down here in Louisiana.

  1. Travis says:

    Katherine: This is such a windy place. I can get mesmerized easily because the cloud patterns change so rapidly.

    Thom: I like a clear blue sky, but it isn't nearly as interesting as when there are clouds.

    NNG: Well that's a good thing!

    V: That I do.

    Marsha: Days like this one make up for all the gray days we have.

    Ivanhoe: It's a good combination.

    Barb: Even when it's raining you can still get some spectacular views.

    Jeni: We sue do get to visit some great places through the camera's eye.

    Linda: I like to grab a sammich and go sit out there for awhile when I have time.

    Charles: I love Lana's pics of the sky down there.

    Akelamalu: On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say I'm 100.

    Lois: My pleasure!

  1. cool, trav, neither warm nor dry enough here yet for long walks :(

  1. I love the second one from the top the best. And I just love your new feature!

  1. Kanani says:

    It's so pretty there. I'm hoping one day we get posted to Ft. Lewis.

  1. DrillerAA says:

    Very nicely done. I can see how those views help ease the pain.

  1. Special and beautiful! What a wonderful walk-about. Thanks for taking us along. I look forward to this feature every week. You have such a great view from your workplace.

    Have a great weekend!

  1. TopChamp says:

    I love how detailed and vibrant the sky is against the grey-blue water.

  1. Julie says:

    OH yeah! Very expressive looking sky!

  1. Travis says:

    Laughingwolf: It can still be a bit chilly here, and it's supposed to rain in the next few days. But when it's sunny, we have to get out in it.

    Julia: I'm enjoying this too. I'm finally getting out and enjoying this wonderful area.

    Kanani: The museum at Ft Lewis is on our list of places to go.

    Drilleraa: It's definitely helping my attitude.

    Mimi: I've got a really good one set up for next week. This place will be overloaded with pics!

    TC: The colors are amazing around here, especially after a few days of gray skies.

    Julie: We watched those clouds roll around and change shapes all day.

  1. gonna stay wet all week, with nite temps at or below freezing :(

  1. Lovely shots! Yesterday kinda petered out on us down here in PDX but I am looking forward to summer big time now.

  1. I'm catching up on posts here; the water shots are always so lovely. Thanks for sharing. It's been brutal temp-wise here already, so the water scenes are so appreciated.
