Life's a beach

On Sunday we went to the beach with the dogs - the first time since winter descended upon us in BC. Not a soul was about and yet it was so very beautiful - blue skies, snow-capped mountains across the water, calm sea and rather a lot of ducks (yes ducks on the beach?!) and the obligatory seagulls. The last 2 feathered features were what impressed our guys most and lots of running and swimming was order of the day. Except for the boys, who prefer more leisurely pursuits these days and they went fishing ... which means patrolling the shallow waters for signs of the little minnows that flit about ... pounce, pounce, splash, splash ... fishies beware, the ginger gang hunt fur, feather AND scales it would seem. But I didn't get any photos folks, so sorry about that. Here's one I made earlier (last summer), just to give you a taste.


  1. The snow persists, albeit in piles here and there. Our property is almost clear, but some areas still have quite a lot on the ground. It's actually been pretty dry since the snow storms of Christmas and New Year, but the temperatures are so cold that it's barely getting a chance to melt. The mountains look stunning though!
