I have just returned from the most extraordinary, wonderful, experience of my life -
a 3 week house exchange to Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Talk about filling up the senses (not to mention camera memory cards!)
The single digit temperatures suited my metabolism perfectly, especially on leaving
behind temperatures in the +40C degrees - apologies to those who endured it.
Anyway, before getting more carried away, this photo is of an American Robin,
many of which frequented the property in which I was living (which happened to be
located on an inlet surrounded by a bird sanctuary - could it get any better?!)
