Vaughan and Rita joined us for one night, they took the spot across from us, and all six of us enjoyed a campfire, lots of goodies, marsmallows!!!!!! i had not eaten those for at least 25 years!!
What is not better then good company, good food and friendship!!!
ocean swell rolling in,down below the bank
blowing a NW er, hard,a cold wind
but we have the fire going ,the four of us
moods are mellow,life is good.
wildflowers are abundant,giant Cow Parsnip
its huge white flowers unfolding as if coming out of a package
the big flowers made up of a multitude
of little white ones
underneath on the forest floor
hundreds of tiny daisies,opening to the sun
then closing again at night
i wake up in the morning,at first dawn to the songs of the robins
then the chicadees and wrens follow
soon the eagles cry out to each other
hunting for their young ones,crows call last,
mischief coming for sure
but oh so very smart and cunning,
they find their way,having fun while doing it..
across the campsite
a dead maple, just its trunk standing,
bird holes all the way up and down
second hole from the top houses a family of
woodpeckers, mom and dad flying in and out,
this goes on all day
little green hummingbird finds my feeder
but sees me hovering nearby with my camera
she comes back, over and over again,
until she forgets about me,
and i can take some shots….
To take a break from all the work to be done, we went camping with our family/friends Roel and Ineke, to French beach.
Its beautiful out there, to get there you drive past Sooke, then you pass Shirley Delicious, a wonderful little coffee shop , with incredible, gluten free goodies, and the government campsite is just a bit further down the road, right at the ocean.
We took two spot next to each other, the weather was clear, but oh boy, was it ever cold!!! A NW wind blew right off the water, and we didnt bring big sweaters, but Roel made some very nice camp fires, and the four of us huddled around it, till evening and then played our favourite card game,”skip boo”
