Hot Wheels

All photos taken during a brief early AM bicycle ride on June 30, 2021. We were in the middle of an oppressive heat wave (they call it a heat bubble). It started out on the West Coast, where Victoria was up to +39 a couple of days ago and has been slowly sliding into ourContinue reading “Hot Wheels”

Land Ho

All photos taken July 24, 2021 With about 30 minutes to go in the crossing, we were soon asked to return to our vehicles. There was still a ways to go before landfall, so we watched the scenery pass from the bow. It was somehow quite relaxing. Land Ho © Back down below to ourContinue reading “Land Ho”

Shadow and Light

All photos were taken during our June 23, 2021 walk at Bunchberry Meadows and Tuckers’ Field. With the week of June 21/21 promising hot, dry weather, we opted for an early morning walk here, this week. With temperatures around +15-18 C and winds of 19 k/h gusting to 34 k/h, the timing seemed perfect. OurContinue reading “Shadow and Light”

Home is Where the Heart Is

As I mentioned in the first post in this series, the main reason for this trip was to visit with an ailing parent, a niece, grand-nephew and son and daughter-in-law. Without going into the details, our short time was fraught with many emotions. The home referred to is not any particular place, but just anyContinue reading “Home is Where the Heart Is”

Time Passages

Remember that old album and song from 1978 by Al Stewart? Life kind of feels like that these days and these time lapse sequences of our favourite spots in Bunchberry Meadows and Tucker’s Field epitomize the theme. The longest of these sequences starts February 24 and ends on June 23, 2021. In my last blog,Continue reading “Time Passages”

Red Sky

All photos taken on July 20, 2021 in Kamloops. After a fitful night’s sleep, during which semi trucks seemed to be rolling through my head and applying Jake brakes, we “awoke”??? to another red sky day. We only hope we were driving onward into clearer air. Was your area affected by forest fire smoke thisContinue reading “Red Sky”
