Yaletown and Lost Lagoon

I’m so lucky that the sun is shining on my days off, and the weather has returned to being summer.  Today, I ran some errands then went for a soul walk around Lost Lagoon (via the Yaletown area of the city)  Here are the day’s pictures.  Enjoy!

Sunday with Mom

Back home from another lovely weekend with my Mom.  I have this week off of work, its time that we all start taking vacation days that’ll need to be used up before the end of the year.  It is a rainy Monday morning here, and I have some housework to do, so I’ll just upload…

Not many words, just a few photos

Hi from my Mom’s house in Victoria.  We’re about to have dinner, so just a quick upload and I’ll call it a day.  Hope everyone’s weekend is going well.

Beav is back!

Yesterday, my friend Laura and I went for a walk at Olympic Village after work.  We saw not one, not two, not three but FOUR beavers!  So exciting.  Two were adults, and two were tiny babies.  The dusk light made photographing nearly impossible, but I did get a few photos of them individually.  Baby beavers…

International Talk Like A Pirate Day

ARGGGG!   Hope you all had a chance to ARRRG in honor of ITLAPD.  Neva celebrated in style. Ha! Today started out POURING with rain, and cleared when I got home from work.  Neva spotted crows (lots of crows) in the tree by our deck.  They’re having a feast on the berries.  Those photos and…

Twelve and Counting….

Yesterday, Dennis and I celebrated our 12th anniversary.   Amazing that 12 years has flown by so quickly.  We went out for breakfast to start the day off celebrating, we ran some errands then opened a bottle of bubbly and sent out for dinner last night.  It was a good day.  It was a very…

Catching Up Again

This has been a very, very busy week so apologize for the sporadic postings.  Quickly catching up tonight….photos include some shots from downtown, my aquarium, Neva, and a cooking workshop that I was volunteering as event photographer for.  Bonus….I got a great vegetarian Indian meal.  Enjoy the shots! Hopefully this coming week more regular posts…

Tuesday and Wednesday

Today’s photo round up includes shots from yesterday and today.  Yesterday, I took a lunchtime walk down to Olympic Village.  Today, on my way to work, I found a Tarzan toy (that was well hung on a tree…you’ll see what I mean by that.  wink) so took him for a photo walk tonight.  I walked…

Yesterday and Today

It is catch up time.  Today, I’m sharing photos from a drive my Mom and I took yesterday, and a quick walk after work to harvest the last of our tomatoes.  It is a pretty birdcentric post actually, but there were all kinds of sights to see. (love the Birdman of Victoria)  Have a wonderful…

Not many photos, lots of raindrops…

…and boy oh boy, do we ever need this rain!!!!  I’m over at my Mom’s in Victoria.  I didn’t take many photos on the ferry crossing, and we were out and about at appointments and running errands today, so there are only a few deer photos from the day.  I did photograph a snail on…

Busy Friday but with a little time for me

The last couple of days has been a little crazy. (involving downstairs neighbors, plumbers, landlords, visitors, strata councils, wild work, haze, smoke, rain, more plumbing, and some errands)  I took a little breath in the middle of the whirlwind and took an hour to walk around my long lost happy place Lost Lagoon.  It was…

Hazy Days at the Bird Pond (and in my neighborhood)

Wow…the smoke and haze from various wildfires is sitting like a brick over the city.  That said, I’m not complaining at all….our home is in tact, our family and friends are fine, and we are also not in the line of “fire” of a hurricane.  My thoughts are with all affected.  Today have been a…
