Streamliner Diner cooks

This morning I bicycled 16 miles on Bainbridge Island, then went to breakfast at the Streamliner Diner. I watched the cook make my "Morning Saute"...tomatoes, mushrooms, green onions and spinach over two poached eggs and toast. Scrumptious. He threw the vegies in a black frying pan and swished and flipped them over a high flame till they were steamy and soft, then he carefully dredged two eggs out of the hot water. Mmmm.

After I ate my breakfast, I sketched the cooks at work.

Bremerton shipyard

Made this quick sketch of the Bremerton Naval shipyard from the ferry yesterday as we left the Bremrton ferry terminal.

Beach log at Point White

This morning I took a 16-mile ride around the south end of Bainbridge Island. Afterward I drove back to Point White and made a watercolor of this drift log on the beach. The colors are light, so it didn't scan very well.

Hi-Lo Cafe

This morning I rode my bicycle up Central Valley Road almost to Poulsbo and back, and went out to breakfast at Hi-Lo's Fifteenth St. Cafe in Bremerton afterward. Sketched these guys at the booth in the back.

Tracyton Public House

Katy's away on a visit to her sisters, so after an 18-mile bicycle ride, I had a burger and beer at the Tracyton Pub down the street.

Homeless portrait

I was struck by this photo of a homeless man by stoneth (Tom Stone) and thought I would sketch his strong face.

Bainbridge sidewalk

Today Guy and I went to Bainbridge Island for an errand and stopped at Blackbird Bakery for a cup of coffee. We sat outside on the sidewalk benches and I made this sketch of Guy.

Streamliner Diner

The Streamliner Diner in Bainbridge Island has excellent food, great atmosphere, and usually a long line of people waiting to get in.
