We took a little trip....


Nah, just kidding!

We came across this place in a little town in the mountains of Colorado.

I just wanted to get Q in the mood for his sailing trip that's coming up.

Reflections or...


... a room with a view.

We came across this "cabin" on a lake near Evergreen, Colorado while we were there. It's a very large space set up for rental if you want to have a large gathering or wedding. The area where I was standing to take the photo is the building's dock on the lake.


This is a view of the lake from the dock and what is reflected in the windows in the first photo.

Banner year!


It's been a banner year for Blackberries and fish over here on Northern Vancouver Island! I managed to pick well over a 5 gallon pail of Blackberries and have them stored in the freezer, probably going to make Blackberry jelly out of allot of them but save enough to have with ice cream and on pancakes.

I must admit it always makes me a little nervous when Mother Nature decides to provide a bumper crop of anything. Past experience tells me this abundance usually precedes a nastier than normal Winter... So just to be safe I've cut an extra couple chords of firewood, forewarned is forearmed as the saying goes!

One Day!




If I able to go to Kauai few trips out of a year, maybe I will surf like these guys in next lifetime!

Field of Dreams

 
We came across this "park" while in Evergreen, Colorado last week. They have built hiking trails through the grass lands for all of the healthy conscious people.
 
I was tired just walking the 50 feet to the spot where I took the photo!

Catch of the day...


Oh well, at least I didn't get Skunked!

Let's go fishing!

 
That sounds better than spending all day at work doesn't it?

The Super Moon



It was cloudy here all day yesterday but just as the sun went down and the super moon came up the clouds disappeared allowing Aaron and I and my grandson to get a few shots of the big ol' moon.

Full load!


Looks like fishing's been good for this "Dragger" judging by where the water line is anyway! Snapped this picture with my cell phone today while fishing down at the docks in Port Hardy.

Bones!


While exploring a beach several weeks ago I came across this interesting group of bones. Obviously someone had taken the time to carefully lay them out in this arrangement. I'm thinking these were likely from a large Seal or small Sea Lion.

Foreshadowing...


I was moving some pictures off of my cell phone and onto the computer and found this picture of the frost on the windshield of my truck from last January... Burr!

Soak in as much sunshine and warmth while you can, the Old Farmer's Almanac is calling for colder than average temperatures for everything east of the Rockies this coming winter.

Kansas Fireworks


Been waiting all summer long to get the free time to go out and do this and tonight was the night!!!



6 shot composite.

Aloha!





It's for sale!

 
If you've ever wanted a monstrous house by the ocean then here's your chance. The yacht club is for sale. It looked like a very nice building, right on the beach with it's own pool and smack dab in the middle of the hurricane zone. You better buy it now because when the next hurricane comes through it probably won't be there anymore.
 
Sounds like a good investment, huh?

Otters


I found this mother Otter and not so small baby Otter down on the docks this afternoon and was able to get a few nice pictures of them before they got shy and swam away.
