Glacier Blue


Some of out Blue gums


Surfboard blue

Sea green

Green fields…blue sky.


Blue River with a tinge of green.






My surprise post…

…comes from Blue River,

British Columbia

in Canada.

As we were getting fitted out with our safety gear,

MGW looked at the girl fitting her,

the girl looked at MGW…

…and both came to the realisation that there

had been student/teacher relationship

a few years earlier.


Word of the Day Challenge:  Surprise



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..


Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge: Comfortable-And-Cozy



North American blues this week.

Our verandah view at the

Mike Wiegele Resort,

Blue River, Canada

We had a wonderful visit to

3,700 feet high Grouse Mountain…


where blue skies and icy snow packs gave us

something unusual to photograph.

We had been told of Beaver Tails so just had  to sample.


Although a cardiologist may not agree.

A few weeks later were soaring into the wild blue yonder

as we departed Fairbanks, in our bright blue plane,

crossing the Arctic Circle on our way

to Wiseman, Alaska.

Stunning in colour or black and white.


Cees-BW-Photo-Challenge: Open Topic





During my working life as a Professional Woolclasser

one of the main things we focussed on…

was how a fleece ‘handled’, or how soft it was.

The softest and best fleeces were branded AAA.

Those not so soft were branded AA, and so on.

I could guarantee that every fleece in every bale,

with a AAA brand on it,

would be one of the softest handling fleeces

of the clip.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Handle



The third or fourth night of our Canadian travels… 

was spent at Mike Wiegele’s

Blue River Resort

in British Columbia.

The resort’s accommodation

is set in idyllic surroundings.

And this was the view as I stepped out

the front door of our cabin.

Breath taking…in my opinion.
