A Walk at the Beach

July 15th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 15, 2017 - A sunny Saturday, a slow start, seemed like a good day for a lazy stroll on the beach. We live in such a fabulous place, close the the forest, close to the river, close to the beach. Just a few minutes to any of these and it’s good to enjoy them [...]

Happy 150th Canada Day

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. Paddleboarding….because it is hot and I'd rather fall into the cold ocean on a hot day than a cold one. And I was [...]

A day in the mountains

May 7, 2017 - We are lucky to live where we do, not a day goes by that I don’t recognize that fact and feel grateful for it. And living between the Pacific ocean and the coastal mountain range is something that we are always only to happy to share with others, if for no [...]

Sail Past

April 16, 2017 - The weather has just been atrocious so far this spring. March was officially the gloomiest on record with only three days free of rain, and April hasn’t fared much better so far. Honestly, I don't mind the rain, but it's just been a bit much this year so far. It reminds [...]

Anna’s Hummingbird

February 3rd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

February 3, 2017 - Vancouver has a population of Anna's Hummingbirds that overwinter here. They are tiny, have high metabolic requirements, and feed is presumably scarce at this time of year, so I try very hard to make sure the feeder is always out, always contains food, and stays thawed out. It's a pretty neat [...]

Day 352 – Almost Spring!

December 17th, 2016|Photo a Day - The Rest of 2016?|

December 17, 2016 - Vancouver is such a challenging place to live, the horrible winter weather we have to endure? I mean, we had snowfall warnings for accumulations of 5cm last week, then this week the thermometer dropped to -8C and we had windchills warning for as low as -18C!!! And the snow didn't go [...]
