Creek Side Village


Creek Side Village. Recently took a cruise to Alaska, Ketchikan, AK was definitely my favourite place to stop. Wandering across town I stumbled upon the creek side walk looking for the salmon ladder. What a tream to find this quaint little fishing village lining the river absolutely jammed with salmon..

Hidden Cove


Hidden Cove. After a treacherous "slip" down into the gully of the cove, I was rewarded with this beautiful tree reaching out of the cove for the sunlight. Sadly, again the sea otters wouldn't grace my picture, intead I got the Canadian Geese..

HeadSpace Spot


HeadSpace Spot. I spent a lot of time running through Thetis Lake Park here on Vancouver Island. I usually run with my GoPro and on this particular day I got lost and found a lovely waterfall. If I wasn't on a run for exercise, I probably would have done some headspace mediation at this spot. Would you?.

Tide Changes


Tide Changes. On a hike earlier in the year I took this picture at Witty's Lagoon. I was wondering what these upright logs were for. The lagoon almost completely drains, so it's likely not an old dock. Do you know what they are for?.

Bridge over Troubled Water (Landscape)


Bridge over Troubled Water (Landscape). Took a short hike today down the otherside of Witty's Lagoon trail, it was quite nice and I got a few water falls out of it. This particular one was captivating, and I ended up spending 20-30 minutes crawling around on the rocks and logs at the bottm. Managed to avoid a soaker as well!.

8 Maids a Milking


8 Maids a Milking. The Buchart Gardens really does a magical transformation of their gardens into a Christmas wonderland this time of year. So much so that the park is more packed after 5pm than it is before. For the kids, they have a scavenger hunt to find the 12 days of Christmas. I thought the "8 maids a milking" looked pretty ghostly under the tree branches. What are your thoughts?.

Token Red Tree


Token Red Tree. Ah the fall colours in BC, the ever-green province. One thing I miss from living in Ontario is the plethora of fall colours. But here in BC you get the ocean, and a single red tree with a crisp breeze (not pictured ;o) ) to indicate fall.

Square Junction


Square Junction. Again at the Forest Discovery Centre this steam engine caught my attention. Engine #25 was never really far away on this figure-eight track with this square junction right in the middle..

Ready for the Wedding


Ready for the Wedding. Inside of Hatley castle there are some gardens, and low and behond a place for poeple to get married. This walkway veranda was pretty awesome. Who wouldn't want to get married here?.

Steel and Steam vs Wood and Green


Steel and Steam vs Wood and Green. Today we visited the BC Forest Discovery Centre, which featured a steam engine that we got to ride on. I personally enjoyed trying to capture it as it cut through the green forestry. Star Wars, the original series, had natural colours as "good" (The Rebels) and hard metal colours as bad (The Empire). Kind of the same here. Which is good and which is evil to you? Or is it just a train?.
