Hi from my Mom’s place in Victoria. Neva didn’t come with me (nor did Dennis), but she did a fantastic cushion/hovercraft imitation as I was packing to go. Oh Neva….this isn’t particularly flattering, but you still look cute!
Before I get into the day’s photos, I’ll share a couple of my photo group shots.
I posted this one, taken from the ferry this morning (it was cold but GORGEOUS), on the 365 Days in Nature site.
I saw this deer this afternoon, flipped the picture to black and white and posted it on my new “Only Shades of Gray” group.
As the title says, the other pictures from the ferry include many gull shots. They were EVERYWHERE, and many flew along with the ferry all the way from Vancouver to Victoria. (the trip is about 90 minutes) Cue the old (and terrible) joke – “I just flew in from Vancouver….and boy, are my arms tired”. (insert groan here)
A passenger was doing a “king of the world” from Titanic imitation. And as you can see, the wind was blowing….
Very exciting again, whales were swimming by. Today, there wasn’t much fin or tail to see, just water/air blowing upward.
Can you imagine living here? I can…
Seal alert! :)
Birds on a log, then taking off….
My Mom and I were our running errands this afternoon. Awww! Look at these little beauties! They were at an “adoption drive” that was being hosted by a pet food store who partner with a local rescue agency. AAAWWWW!!!
And this little guy was in a car parked beside us. He was SO friendly…
…and really wanted to get to know me better.
I took a very quick walk before dinner to get some exercise. As I mentioned earlier, I saw a deer…
….a tree with another tree clinging and growing on it. (and it was so much easier to see now that most of the leaves have fallen)
…and another tree that caught my eye.
A mossy tree stump with LOTS of rings….
…and heart shaped moss! <3
White berries that the birds are going to town on….
Today was a banner day for my Mom. It was the first time in her life that she had painted toenails. Woo Hoo!!!! Go Mom Go!!! :)
Mom and I had this for dinner tonight….chicken, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, whole wheat pasta in light alfredo sauce.
That’s my day. I’m not sure I’ll be posting tomorrow, that’ll depend on what time I get home tomorrow. If I do post, “see you then” and if it’s Monday, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
