Photos taken on October 24 and 25, 2022. Checked into our hotel, we set off to accomplish some errands, gas up the car and grab pizza and wine for supper in the room.

Not Leaving Under the Best of Circumstances

All photos taken on October 24, 2022.

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”

All photos taken around my yard on December 2, 2022. A recent bit of snow coupled with high winds and some mysterious humidity created a frosty winter display of hoar frost rime on this morning. The frosty look matches perfectly with the frost temperatures of late – 26C (15 below F) feels like -34C (29Continue reading “Rime Time Hoar Show”

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”
