Sun and Douglas-fir makes a Christmas tree, from in fornt of our house during last month's foggy spell
Merry Christmas to all, islanders and those from away, who read this blog. Thanks for joining me here for another year.
Here is a shot of Bowen I took today on a float plane flight to Victoria. You're looking across the mouth of Howe Sound to Cowan Point, Apodaca Ridge and Mount Gardner.
Click on the photo to have a peek at the whole set of shots I took as we cruised over the Strait of Georgia in the late afternoon sun today.
This is the ONLY way to travel the coast!
Our little celtic music session at The Snug is going well. Every Friday, a group of us gather to play tunes, learn tunes and generally make a small group of listeners happy. We have a good time down there, and this is what it looked like a couple of weeks ago when we were joined by Keona and Neil of Cleia on a rainy Friday night.
Come on down and join us if you play Irish or Scottish tunes, or if you just want to listen to a bunch of islanders banging out the tunes.
Ann Mann photgraphed these Salmonberries along Miller Road, and Finn and I came along yesterday and ate them, our first handful of the year. Seems a little early for them, but we aren't complaining.
Lots of warblers still around, including Wilson's and Orange Crowned spotted at the Cape yesterday.
We have a humming bird nest in the back yard. It sits and shakes on an Ocean Spray bush as the little ones wriggle around within.
