When I'm Lazy, I Post Pictures

I was up at my favorite spot (Garry Point) the past couple of nights. Here's what I see when I'm there (click on the pics to make them larger/better):

I think I live in one of the most beautiful spots in the world...nights like this are special here.
This piece of driftwood reminded me of some sort of dinosaur.

I stopped at Dad's on the way home and took more flower pics...unfotunately, he'd just picked about 40 of his lillies to take to our doctor (his wife loves them)...this is some of what was left.

I took quite a few more pics - some good ones of herons and geese and a few of the rising river that, at the moment, is behaving. I'll post them tomorrow. For now, here are some "action" shots......

These two nutballs (Ty & Fiona) decided, out of the blue, to have a race. "On your mark....get set.....GO"
They also played hockey because, when you're Canadian, that's what you do when you're bored. We're never too old for a game in the parking lot. Ty's giving Fiona a few pointers on wrist shots here.
When the ball went between the fence into the neighbour's yard, I tried for several minutes to get it out and got it right up to the fence. It was at that point that Ty insisted that "this is MEN'S work" and took over from me.


After unsuccessfully trying his (better) way, Ty deliberated for a minute and then came up with.....











...... "aw, screw it. YOU get it Fiona."

Fiona had her gameface on. You just don't mess with a Canadian girl when she's playing hockey, o.k.?! (Click on this image to get the full effect of Fiona's fierceness!).

I'm glad you understand ;)

(oh, btw, I never ever did post those fantastic aerial shots you sent me...I'm so lame that I didn't know how to get them from my email to my blog. But I really loved them...just thought you might wonder why they never showed up. It's because I'm still in internet kindergarten!)

You told a nice story with the pictures. And yes, it does look beautiful out your way. Keep it a secret, eh?

Are those foxgloves growing in a pot field?

Fiona sure does have her game face on! I'd want her on my team.

Nice pictures Deb. Tried taking a picture of Mount Baker again today. Still no mountain in my picture! How ever did you do it? I'm going to have to scroll back through you old posts and find that picture. I want that picture.

busterp...thank you. Oops, guess I'm letting the cat outta' the bag, aren't I?

kelly...that's Fiona for you. She's a great sport and I just love her for that.

Allison...I just love that beach. Hard to go wrong when taking pictures there.

Barb...I'm laughing because I thought it looked like pot too. Being in Steveston, wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Mel...thank you. Ty & Fiona are great subjects - they're so animated. They keep me entertained when they're here.

tc...Mount Baker is a tough one. We're not too far away here, so that's probably why I can manage to capture it (slightly). You'll notice it's kind of faint in my shots too though.
