Cee-BW-Challenge-Murals

~~~~~

Don’t know what happened last week. 

Honestly thought Murals was this week.

As we left Vancouver Island…

we stopped at the town of Chemainus…

to view its famous Murals.

….before catching a ferry to

the Canadian mainland.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Tender-Moments

~~~~~

From all over this week.

Not sure if this is a ‘tender moment’ or

a power play in the

Chobe National Park,

Botswana.

I choose to believe it is the former.

Mother gently reminding the family to keep up

in Geelong Wetland..

Horse and handler in Victoria,

British Columbia,

Canada.

My final tender moment at

the Port of Vancouver.

Log cabin style accommodation

greeted us at…

…the Mike Wiegele Blue River Resort

in British Columbia.

Comfy and cozy is an apt description for this accommodation

which came equipped with a huge fireplace if required.

And note the view out the window.

it is real and not a painting.

Just stunning, gorgeous…or

a superlative of your choice..

The Butterfly Gardens…2Victoria…

Vancouver Island…

British Columbia…

Canada.

I think the Butterfly Gardens are

an and ideal addition to your

Butchart Gardens visit.

 

Situated about 5-10 minutes by bus from Butchart Gardens

the Butterfly Gardens provide a different experience.

Also a half hour or so is all that is required

to wander the comparatively small Butterfly Gardens.

Some unexpected moments

from 2018.I rose with the sparrows and drove 45 minutes

to Point Lonsdale for a sunrise shoot last March. 

Expectations were high. 

Results were low. 

And after being blown around by a chilly breeze

I decided to pack my gear away and head home.

I had walked about a quarter of the way

back along the pier

when this rainbow appeared above the lighthouse. 

I had no more than two minutes

to grab a camera and capture some images…

then it was gone as quickly as it appeared. 

Unexpectedly.

Also this time last year I had no idea we would

celebrate our Wedding Anniversary with 

First Class Dining in a private cabin

aboard the Q Train.

June in Canada and we did not expect

to experience falling snow….even on

the Columbia Icefield.

 

This time last year we did expect a trip

to Auckland for an engagement party. 

However, a wedding date had not been settled upon

and so our September/October trip

back (to New Zealand) for the

wedding of Number 1 Son

to Number 2 Daughter-in-Law

was unexpected but enjoyable.
