Beautiful Day on Vancouver Island

Hi from my Mom’s place in Victoria.  It was a gorgeous, sunny spring day, and my camera and I saw all kinds of bright and interesting things.  Come with me…

Here are some shots from the ferry crossing this morning…..

…after lunch, Mom and I ran some errands and went for a drive.  We saw neighborhood deer who were enjoying the sun, standing under blossoms, and waiting for the #27 to Downtown. 🙂 …..

…we drove by a little farm that has sheep I’ve seen before, but I wanted to see how big the babies are.  They are officially getting quite big.  Awww….  They were VERY chatty, and one had a ladybug land on it.  Lucky!……

    What a wonderful weekend with your Mom. We had temps to 70 degrees yesterday, this morning with the wind chill it feels 24. Spring is so cruel in the midwest!
