It's getting chilly here in Sequim. Not nearly as cold as Alaska usually is (though not this year), but cold enough that we're forced to turn on our new propane fireplace. I wasn't so sure about giving up the woodstove, but this new unit is clean and when I want some heat, I simply throw a switch. I like that! Not one to miss an opportunity, my camera-toting husband spent an evening this week lying on his stomach, gazing though his lens, and snapping away. The result is something both beautiful and interesting. I like the blue glass on the bottom of the fireplace, since it adds an unusual quality to the flame.
