Fish Tales



At the "tail end" of my 3 months in British Columbia, Canada,
I discovered this amazing aquarium at YVR (Vancouver International Airport).
What a wonderfully soothing way to bid farewell to my all-time favourite part of the world!







The Vancouver Aquarium, within Stanley Park, was also an amazing
experience, but more of that in a future post.

Dusk at Goose Spit


Goose Spit is a narrow coastal strip of land at the end of the Comox Harbour.
It is a popular area for a variety of activities - walking, kite sailing, beach barbecues in Summer and the steps (100?) satisfy the needs of those more athletic individuals.

Looking across to the Beaufort Ranges

This is one of the summer barbecue pits


Here are the steps for those wanting to keep fit!

. . . but I think the dog's expression says it all !  ("Are we there yet??")

Thank you, James, for hosting
and happy weekend to all

Mt Washington

A foggy day on Mt Washington - no chair lift ride today!




. . . so another visit to Paradise Meadows followed instead
(more pics to come on another day)


However, several weeks later, with no sign of fog, another trip to Mt Washington had the chair lift operational and the following views were ours to soak up . . .



This is one of the ponds in adjacent Paradise Meadows


 
Looking down at the Alpine Ski Resort


Is that a quill pen I see, coming from Heaven ?!

With thanks to Alan for hosting
and wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Adventures in Canada

Arrived home (Adelaide, South Australia) a few days ago, after another wonderful adventure on Vancouver Island, British Columbia in Canada - this time for an amazing 3 months.
Since it wasn't easy for me to post photos to my blog site, thought I would begin playing "catch up" now. 
It was Summer when I arrived in Comox - 26C 

 Sunset from Goose Spit a narrow waterfront park at one end of Comox Harbour

 Comox Lake and Glacier

 Entrance to nearby Lazo Marsh woods

 One of several trails through the woods


 Another section of the trail

 I continue to be fascinated by the erectness and height of the trees!

 Signage at the entrance

 A pair of Bald Eagles adjacent to Lazo Beach

 A pretty growth of Poppies on a property fronting the beach


I anticipate resuming regular blog posts again, so you too (hopefully) can share in the delights of Vancouver Island, BC

With appreciation to the faithful team who keep
up and running !

Fun with Fog


After a couple of spectacularly gorgeous Autumnal days here in Adelaide, South Australia, this morning brought in a significant amount of fog.
The opportunity to get out there and capture some foggy shots was too good to miss, so headed off to local Wynn Vale Dam with my photo friend, where we spent an exciting couple of hours.  Following are the results - hope you enjoy them and are able to capture the atmosphere.
























 On our way back to the car, we spotted this Koala dozing way up high



What a delightful start to the day - which went on to become another glorious expression of Autumn "down under".

Joining in the fun at
