Our much loved @CFSnowbirds performing a fly-by over Oakville-Trafalgar hospital this afternoon at 1:07pm as part of #operationinspiration.  A cross Canada tour to lift our spirits as we wait out the worst of COVID-19, while paying tribute to all front line employees who are working right now.  It absolutely is motivating to watch the squadron approach and do a loop around the hospital with wings tipped.  We got this!

Vancouver Sea Village Featuring Houseboat Homes Along False Creek

People’s houseboat homes along Vancouver’s False Creek

Time to begin virtually traveling the world while we all take a pause and self-hibernate (sometimes I do feel like a bear hanging out in his den waiting for spring!) First stop is beautiful Vancouver and a look at Sea Village, a lifestyle community of houseboat homes along False Creek. These folks have the best of both worlds… living in the city and on the water. I gather keeping 6ft apart while walking on the dock to get groceries is difficult, however picture sitting at the end of the dock in front of your place watching life slowly pass by!

Day break over 16 Mile Creek

We are a few minutes after 8am on Saturday October 26, standing on the Dundas street overpass looking south down 16 Mile Creek. The sun came over the trees about 15 minutes ago, slowly bringing light and life as the birds got going. Mist from the creek rose and a sun haze stretched out across the tree canopy.

Canoeing With Your Smartphone On Canada Day… it’s a good thing!

Good for them! It’s Canada Day and this couple went for a paddle and some fishing on one of the lakes, and she brought her phone. Nothing wrong with that (unless you fall in!) as long as you are outdoors and soaking in what mother nature has to offer 🙂

This is Clarkson Cup pre-game warm-up for the Calgary Inferno (red jerseys) and Les Canadiennes de Montreal (white jerseys) at the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto yesterday. A one game winner takes all featuring the best female hockey players in the world. Calgary went on to win the Cup with a spirited 5-2 victory in which both teams demonstrated incredible skill. The women’s game is so fluid and fast paced, making it a ton of fun to watch!

Birch trees mixed in with the requisite vibrant fall colors on echo lake this past Thanksgiving weekend. Though never taking the change in colors for granted, it still is fun to see tourists arrive by motorcoach to look at what we Canadians see every year!

Sweeping sunset across Conger Lake while kayak camping early September in the Massasauga Provincial Park with one of our daughters. Two excellent days with sun, mid-teen temperatures, card games, good food, campfire, and these fantastic skies after the sun went down.
