Beach Day

Spent a wonderful day hiking in and out to a number of beaches.
Take the walk along with me.

It was a long day and we finished up with dinner at The Coastal Cafe in Port Renfrew where the food was fabulous.

Spot the Hummingbird

Not sure how we even saw it.
Considering I was a couple tequila shots into the evening I think I did rather well.

Be sure to zoom in you’d never know the bird is there it camouflages well

Not often you see a hummingbird sitting still

The area of the tree where it was sitting was dripping sap it just flew in sat down and ate for awhile. It was the coolest thing.

Series Two of Thru the Window

One might ask why so many photos?
My answer would be love. My man has health concerns and can’t travel, this way he can take the trip vicariously thru me and I can relate the trip as we go along.
This series is dedicated to him.

Series Two of Thru the Window
Photos were taken using my PENTAX Optio E90 pocket camera.
The majority of photos I took on this trip were with this camera so I have divided the slideshows by day. Enjoy and remember if you click thru on the slideshow you can see a larger version and slow down the slideshow.

Day One
The fireworks here are horrible I know but it was Canada Day and I was on a moving train. They were in Mission.

Day Two
This was where I woke up around 6am just out side Kamloops. Arrived in Jasper at 4pm our time. The ride was awesome.

Day Three
Met my Friend in Jasper and we drove to Clearwater and camped on the North Thompson River

Day Four
We started our day waking up next to the North Thompson River and we ended the day camping in Sasquatch Provincial Park. We didn’t see him though.

There is one more set of photos to come of this trip from yet another camera.

Stay tuned…

Recycling at its finest

We needed a new screen for our front door to keep the bugs out.
Here's what we came up with items found around the house.
Almost finished...

Thru the Window

This is the first of my Thru the Window series.
I went on a small trip took the train to Jasper, stayed over and the next day my best friend picked me up and we drove back to the Island and went camping for a couple days along the way.

I used three types of cameras and Series One is done completely on my ASUS Tablet.
When I did have wi-fi I shared a few picks on Facebook.Cool feature of instant upload of photos. If the train had wi-fi I would have blogged all along.

These are all photo of the way to Jasper.
Sorry the slide show is a little fast I can’t figure out how to slow it down yet

But if you click thru you can look at them slower if you like.
More photos of each way are on the other 2 cameras.

I will be posting those soon…
