Final Day in Seattle: Disc Golf and Bubbles

With my guys, disc golf is just a given in their lives. They usually carry a few discs with them just in case the opportunity to play presents itself.

Being in Seattle meant that the guys could play disc golf in a different state. How great for them! Of course, because Sunday was our get-away day, there wasn’t time for 18 holes (especially since we had to check the infamous garment bag). Still, we found the North SeaTac Park disc golf course near the airport and played six holes among the beautiful pines.

It’s too bad that we didn’t have enough time to play the entire course. It was well-marked and challenging.

What I liked best was that it was almost chilly! I just loved those temperatures in the low 60s, especially knowing that later in the day we’d be sweltering back in Houston. The woods did make shooting conditions somewhat difficult for me and my Nikon D300 and Nikon 105mm lens—at times my shutter speed was too low to stop the action when the guys were throwing from among the trees, and I wasn’t quick enough in increasing the ISO.

I failed to stop the action of the #1 son's throw, but I like the almost abstract nature of the photo. (1/13th of a second, f/2.8, ISO 400)

After the boys finished playing, they decided to get rid of the bubbles they’d been saving from their cousin’s wedding ceremony. I guess it doesn’t matter how old you are . . . it’s fun to blow bubbles!
