Steveston Excursion – Part 3 – Snow Geese

All photos taken on October 23, 2022. The delta of the Fraser is typically teeming with birdlife throughout the year. In late fall, the primary species migrating through tends to be the snow geese. A few years back, we were able to walk through huge groups of them on Garry Point. On this visit, theyContinue reading “Steveston Excursion – Part 3 – Snow Geese”

4 & 20

All photos taken on October 22, 2022. This post titled itself, as our day went on. No, not a reference to cannabis. There were blackbirds and there was pie (pye). It was a more low key day, after all the biking and walking we had been doing the past few days. We hiked to TartineContinue reading “4 & 20”

Take a Gander at This

All photos taken on October 6, 2022. We were headed away for a road trip the next day and opted to take a spin around Beaumont on our bikes to see what was shaking, flying, landing, splashing, etc. The Canada Geese are still enjoying their daily routine of fattening up on spilled grain, practicing flyingContinue reading “Take a Gander at This”

Golden Time – The Gathering

All photos taken on September 26, 2022. If the weather throughout September has been nothing less than startling, then, the last week has been magnificent. Cool mornings but no frost and days warming slowly to record temperatures for this part of the world. We have been outdoors as much as possible, on foot, on bike,Continue reading “Golden Time – The Gathering”

Autumn’s Flying By

Photos taken on September 23 and 24, 2022. I know autumn only started at 7:03 PM on September 22, 2022, but it seems to be flying by, as strong autumn winds sweep colour leaves from the trees and keep the Canada Geese grounded. It has not been a real treat for our bike riding adventuresContinue reading “Autumn’s Flying By”

Dewy or Don’t We?

All photos taken August 23, 2022, during our weekly forest walk. Yesterday, our area was infiltrated by wildfire smoke for the first time this summer. The AQI was an 8 and not recommended for outdoor strenuous activity. So, we complied, while we looked for the best timing for this week’s Bunchberry walk. The 23rd wasContinue reading “Dewy or Don’t We?”

Making the Rounds

All photos taken on August 21, 2022. We alternate between rural and city rides, depending on the day and time we have. This day was an in town ride and with a few zigs and zags, we managed to pedal 25 km. (15 1/2 miles) in about 90 minutes. And in the time and space,Continue reading “Making the Rounds”

Calm, Cool & Connected

All photos taken on August 18, 2022. In the middle of a hot spell, we pondered what to do to get out and about. It would be too hot and sunny in the late morning/early afternoon to walk or cycle far, but, we couldn’t just sit around all day, avoiding this spell of good weather.Continue reading “Calm, Cool & Connected”

Sharing the Road

All photos taken on July 15, 2022 during a short cycle around the ponds in our city. A heat wave (for Canadians) has arrived in the area. Temperatures around +30 C (86 F) with a humidex of +35 C (95 F), not a breath of wind and the hot sun beating down did not enticeContinue reading “Sharing the Road”

Lazy Sunday….

All photos taken on July 3, 2022. ….was what today was not. After breakfast, we set off for a walk to the North side of our city, basically on the edge of the country. It was a cool morning, but we soon warmed up, as we walked. The walk was short, only 3.5 km. asContinue reading “Lazy Sunday….”
