Richmond Farm Day

Yesterday I ventured about half an hour south of Vancouver to Richmond.  On the way out to the farmland for berries (I’ll be making jam later today), I stopped at the Nature Park, a monastery, a village with deserted boats etc, and the petting zoo at one of the farm markets.  Here are some of…

Vitamin Sea

I am so lucky, the weather for my staycation days has, so far, been perfect.  Today, I took a walk along Jericho Beach.  I dipped my feet into the water, and the vitamin sea was good for the soul.  VERY cold, but still….  We also have crows hanging around on our deck and just outside…

Yesterday and today

I have the week off work.  I’ll just be staycationing, but its nice to have a little time to break the routine, relax and recharge.  Today’s photos are from my Victoria afternoon yesterday, our amazing cloudy ferry crossing back home, an upside down seal, and today’s walk around Lost Lagoon.  Enjoy the shots, and enjoy…

Happy Birthday Dennis

Hello from my Mom’s place in Victoria. Dennis and I are here celebrating his birthday with her. Here is a mishmash of today’s photos. Enjoy them, enjoy the rest of the weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday.    

Catch Up

I ran out of steam last night, just didn’t get to the photos I’d taken that day.  So without further adieu, here are some photos from my walk to Olympic Village.  As well as a few shots around home.  (the crows are on the power line right outside out home, and they are driving Neva…

Summer Solstice Gathering

Today’s photos were all taken last night.  Dennis and I went to the Gathering Festival, which celebrated the arrival of summer with a party in the park, a walk through a neighborhood and a performance at the end.  (Our friends Alex and Carmen are involved with the organization hosting the festival, and we were happy…

Bird Pond Action

After work tonight, I went to our little garden via the bird pond.  There was all kinds of heron/duck/gull/turtle action going on.  I also took a couple of flower shots today, some pictures of my frog Peggy, Neva, and some random dogs.  I’m happy to share my Monday here.  And I hope all of you…

Weekend in June

We’ve had a full weekend here in the land of Lens3.  Yesterday, I ran some errands then went for a walk at Trout Lake.  I saw a bunch of acrobatic yoga students perfecting their skills.  They made it look easy, but I’m sure it isn’t.  Last night we went to our friends Lindi and Jeff’s…

Friday at Last!!

I’ve had a very very busy couple of work days.  Between that and record breaking rain yesterday, I didn’t get out and take any photos.  But after work today, I did a quick walk to my current favorite park.  Not only did I see probably the last of the large gosling groups of the year,…

Flowery, Feathery kind of day

Nothing too earth shattering on today’s post, but it MAY cause you to say some “awww’s” and “oooh’s” . Come on along to Hinge Park with me….

Sunday and Monday combined

I’m quickly sharing pics from yesterday and today.  Yesterday, while I was with my Mom, we went to Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria, I went for a rocky beach walk, we took a drive and I took some pictures on the ferry last night.  Today, I went to our little community garden plot via the bird…

Over at my Mom’s

Hello from Victoria, BC. Today, I’m sharing just a few pictures from the day which include beautifully illuminated Neva taken in this morning’s sunlight, ferry crossing shots, photos taken some farm lands where we found stellar farm eggs and the first strawberries of the season. (as well as some amazing asparagus, which was picked today) Mom…
