North Vancouver Day

Today, I went to North Vancouver (over a bridge) to have lunch with friends.  Since I was over in that part of the city, I decided to have a walkabout in Deep Cove and Cates Park.  I saw birds, totem poles, frost and ice, crabbers, and very brave souls who were kayaking and paddle boarding…

Walk to Kits Point

I’m really lucky, I have this week off work.  Double lucky, it is sunny and cold and is supposed to stay that way for a few days.  The snow on the mountains north of the city looked pretty this morning from our deck.  And there was a big cloud that looked like lips.  I bundled…

Home after the holidays

We had a REALLY nice Christmas break at my Mom’s in Victoria.  It was a little hard to leave today, but we had to head back.  Maybe not forever, but for now.   Before we left, Mom and I ran a few errands.  In the grocery store, I saw a grumpy potato, we saw some…

Oh deer….

Not a whole lot to share today.  It’s been a day of visits, and some relaxation.  My Mom and Neva are now a team in the kitchen (ha!), we saw so many deer (all male, with antlers) this afternoon, then we went and visited our friends, their kids and their dog.  Lily (the dog) and…

Boxing Day Photo Dump

Happy 26th.  Today, I just have a few shots from last night, from my Mom and my little shopping trip out this morning, some deer and birds in the neighborhood, shots from a walk I took this afternoon (strange fungus’) and lots of inflatable decorations on lawns.  Coincidence that every Santa I saw had fallen…

Christmas Photo Dump

To those of you who celebrate, Merry Christmas.  I’ll just share a few photos from our trip from Vancouver to Victoria yesterday, our Christmas morning, and a walk I took this afternoon (the deer were out walking too).  Enjoy, and wherever you are, I hope you are enjoying the season too!  Happy Holidays!  

Just a quickie

I spent the day at work and running errands, so don’t have many photos of note today.  I did however, attach my elf to the horse’s a%$ trophy we have at work.  He is Centaur Elf. This sign is misleading, there was no snow or ice… I think I found a friend for Elf, in a…

Birds of a Feather

I went to a bird pond during my “get away from your computer for an hour” walk during my lunch hour. And saw lots of birds.  Funny that…. Not sure why Spongebob was there.  🙂 The last of the fall leaves piled up, with some mushrooms, a squirrel and a very odd “Christmas decoration”. Self…

Exciting spotting today

I took a walk at lunchtime, just to get away from my desk.  I saw a really interesting deck tree…. Fairly standard birds…. I saw a pretty amazing mural…. …and some evidence of beaver activity at a pond in the park…. I saw some excitement and a group of people taking photos…. …and voila.  An…

Walk around Lost Lagoon

I escaped from the weekend before Christmas madness, and went for a walk around, what my husband Dennis calls it, my “happy place” – Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park.  It is magical there, please come with me… There were the standard ducks, and divers…. ….swans with attitude….. …herons with intensity… ..oh look, its Russell Crowe,…
