A Walk in the Park

July 8th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 8, 2016 - The weather was warm today and it seemed like an excellent day to go get lost in the cool forest just two blocks from home. Capilano Regional Park, and the river and canyon it contains, is a jewel in our backyard. It is also home to the Capilano River Salmon Hatchery, [...]

July 1, 2017 - Happy 150th Birthday Canada, I am so grateful to call you home. Today, for Canada Day, for Canada's 150th birthday, we decided to celebrate by trying something new.

"You put the cone of shame back on me, you aren't going to put your motorcycle helmet away. That's how this game will be played….." Poor Loki, he looks like a lamp again.
