never taken for granted

What better way to start the BC Day long weekend than walking in the majestic Pacific Spirit Park on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We never take for granted how fortunate we are. Have a safe and sunny weekend and if you are working for us all my heartfelt thanks as always.

hold your breath

barking up the right tree


 

 
Walking in the Pacific Spirit Park on a rainy Saturday afternoon and enjoying the beauty of nature’s “canvases”, which never fail to inspire, as these mossy, craggy tree trunks did today.
 

farewell to a hero


 
On a day when the Pacific Spirit Park sparkled in its beauty at every turn I would like to remember my amazing brother-in-law, a veteran, who left us today surrounded by his wonderful family after 98 years of a life that inspired all of us who knew him. We will miss him but his spirit will never leave us.

raising spirits


 
These views walking in the Pacific Spirit Regional Park yesterday raised my spirits. I hope they raise yours today, a day in which Canada came together from coast to coast in support of those grieving in Nova Scotia.🇨🇦

in this together

 

Written in chalk beneath a rainbow on the entrance to Tatlow Park here in Vancouver these words are perhaps the perfect way to recognize this 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. We are indeed all in this together.

Since this is also National Park Week, and following my look back to Antelope Canyon, I thought I would re-post our visit to magnificent Bryce Canyon five years ago today together with the painting that it inspired.

From the wonder and awe of the magic of Antelope Canyon to the breathtaking majesty of the vistas of Bryce Canyon. It has been another unforgettable day and once again I will let the pictures do all the talking…

…the final shot at the end of a perfect day.
