Uncover Your Creeks

This morning, I volunteered a few hours of time and did some event photography for Evergreen, the national non profit organization that connects people in urban settings to their natural environments within the city.  They work in conjunction with municipalities and parks departments and provide education and volunteer opportunities for folks of all ages. Here…

You Otter Dance!

That title is a groaner.  I was off work today, but had a busy day nonetheless.  I was over in North Vancouver, in Olympic Village where I saw a gorgeous little otter, I had dinner with good friends visiting from out of town, then saw a group of dancers on the way home.  The head…

A small little album for Thursday

The only walks I’ve taken in the last couple of days is to and from work.  As a result, there aren’t many photos to share.  BUT….I’m off work tomorrow so normal posts should return soon.  In the meantime, voila…my little neighborhood (and my gorgeous Neva).

Mishmash of Photos

Here is a group of photos from the last couple of days.  Sunsets, twins, frogs, squirrels, birds, reflections, turtles, flowers, street shots and my artsy fartsy series called “men on scaffolding”. (ha!)  Enjoy!!

Garden and Granville….

…Island.  Today, I reseeded at our little garden plot, went to Granville Island, visited Cousin Helen and prepped meals for the week ahead.  I also had a close encounter with a hummingbird while I was having coffee on our deck this morning, and also found a snail shell.  Enjoy my Sunday shots, and have a…

Saturday Scene

I’m on my own today, Dennis is visiting his family for a week.  Neva and I are holding down the west coast fort…..and one of us had a big bath today.  Nice tongue Neva. I watched birds from my chair on the deck…. After some housework and kitchen prep, I ventured out to Commercial Drive…

Out and About

Today, I’m sharing a few photos that were taken on the road close to my hairdresser’s salon, at my little community garden, of the frogs in the workplace aquarium, a hummingbird, and of course, Neva stretching like a supermodel.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

The Last Couple of Days

The baby crows are still squawking around our neighborhood (and entertaining Neva)… ..fall colours already?  No, just a Japanese Maple tree… ..one of the last of the ducklings of 2017…. …lilies are everywhere right now…. ..bath time at the bird pond…. …and sunbathe time too…. …LOTS of dragonflies at the bird pond too…. …flowers in…

Get Ready for AWWWW!

Today, I have a whole whack of awww worthy pictures to share today.  Our vet is working with a kitty adoption agency, a pregnant mom was brought into their care, and a couple of weeks ago, 4 little grey kittens arrived.  I’ll be taking their photos every Monday until they are adopted. (likely when they’re…

Sunday in Victoria

Today’s post is a recap of my day in Victoria yesterday.  I had a morning walk on the beach at Mt. Douglas Park (and as you can see, I came across quite a few creatures….), Mom and I saw some deer, and we went for a photo drive around Victoria.  Finally, there are shots from…

Quickie from my Mom’s House

Hi from Victoria, BC.  I just a few photos to share today, mostly from my ferry ride today (and the baby seagulls that were at the ferry terminal) and a few other shots taken while we were out and about.  Also, you can see Neva was keen to be packed in my suitcase  before I…

Garden on the roof and Jericho picnic

I, and four colleagues, have made a rooftop garden at work.  We are growing veggies to give to a local women’s shelter.  The veggies they can’t use (since everything comes at once), will be sold to our other colleagues with funds being given to the shelter for their use.  Here are some pictures of our…
