. This afternoon I took Noni to the lake for swim.

it was too cold for me to make the plunge today. Yesterday was perfect - hot, calm, and sunny - not today. Today was windy, overcast and a chill in the air.

On a positive note I found my sunglasses laying in the muck where I put the kayak in yesterday.

The season keeps crawling forward.. I do have a good front of the house coordinator now but the dishwasher boys are driving us all crazy. There is hope of improvements- when is October?

I had two days off together with my wife and we left camp and went to our condo. Today is my mothers birthday so we celebrated it with her.
Yesterday we drove to Vancouver and watched Tarzan, I enjoyed it.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend..
mom is 80

Noni made this cake

BBQ











Well 165 hungry campers are arriving tomorrow for the next two weeks.. Back to the grind.

Spring contract is ending - phew I survived the most stressful season yet at camp for me -- Monday summer season begins - hopefully it is better... But first I must survive a BBQ Thursday for 175+ and another one on Friday for 350+ . There is a weekend off the last one Noni and I have together until --- whom knows when.....

Sunday was my turn to work - Noni was off... I was to have the whole day off on Saturday but I couldn't leave Noni all alone so I worked in the morning to help her out then I went to the Vancouver area... Sunday after lunch was finished I was off, so Noni and I went to Stanley Park to ride together.. Surprisingly what one can do with your free time if you actually get moving...

So yesterday I took Noni up to the highlands where Dalhouise and I had hiked at the beginning of February. We did the same rout s without getting lost this time. What I noticed was it seemed so much shorter to reach the end point then when I did it the first time. Much more comfortable hiking in known territory then going into the unknown.

So these are our signs of Spring bursting upon our beings, and take note of the Dalhouise wallowing in a little creek bed..

This days was the first time this year that Noni came out riding with me. I'm sure it won't be the last, but our days are numbered for the freedom to just drop everything and go out to enjoy the sunshine and warmth. Camp season for me begins in about 15 days and 20 days for Noni. I really hope that this year I do get more opportunity and have energy to go out riding / walking / hiking more during the summer then I have had in the last few seasons. Still trying to figure out why my handheld GPS and computer won't work together - haven't geocache in so long now which makes me sad.

do you ever feel like your just an old rusty body of rusted pile of nuts and bolts?

The picture is very cute. We get great tits in our garden! I was thinking it might be a nice project to do with the kids, making a nest box, although perhaps we've left it bit late for this year.

I know what you mean. I get intimidated by the serious types! Some people instantly frown if I take my children into a bird hide, even though the kids know to be super quiet and well-behaved when there are other people in there. My little girl loves birds and can recognise many by sight. I wish I had learned more about birds as a child. I only really got into it in my 40s.

Beautiful pictures. The crocus remind me of home. I do not think they gfrow down here maybe in the higher elevations. In NJ I had a gorgeous Spring garden .It was 82* here today. I hope it is not going to be one of those crazy hot Summers here.

Motivation to get outside







Not sure what the plan is for today yet. First we have church, then there is a church fellowship luncheon - then it is unclear. Was talk about us going to Vancouver- but I think we will do this Tuesday- so we might go explore a trail this afternoon if the rains hold off.

You see such neat things on your walk. The house is lovely I can see why you would like to have it.Never say Never you don't know what is around the next corner .
I will make you laugh I have tried to grow dandelions. They greens are so good for you. I can never get them t take in the garden. My grand father probably rolls in his grave every time I try to seed them emoticon

. Let's hook up Dalhouise



So on Monday we celebrated Family Day Holiday by heading north 45 minutes to go see a water falls we heard about. On route we stopped to let Dalhouse out to get some exercise and we ended up snowshoeing. We heard dogs barking just up the road so we went exploring.
( left Dalhouse in the car at this spot - worried he would be dog food for these other working pups..

I wish I could post a video - it is so adorable Dalhouise eating from the spoon.
My FB and instagram has a video.

Noni wanted to give Dalhouise the left over rice from our restaurant meal ... I say he won't eat it. She mixes it with the beef juice and a couple of beef chunks and we get our doggie container. Well here is the proof - I was wrong - first time in my life honest......
Dalhouise did eat all of it but only after she fed it to him from the spoon. When we offered the container he just turned his nose away in discuss

Beautiful pictures as always. We had a dusting of snow overnight. I am glad it is gone. It was a bit warmer with the sun out. I stacked some firewood. We had a couple of cords delivered the other day. I also got in a few extra steps chasing my falcon away. At least he is polite he was sitting at the table eating a junco when I got home from work this morning . SIGH I guess I will save money on bird feed emoticon

This day began alittle dreary, I didn't have too much motivation to get outside.. Dalhouise didn't care about this mood - he wanted his walk. After Noni and I did go to the swimming pool - the pool felt cold today. The hot tub seemed extra hot.

Hope your back is feeling some better today . I find sitting makes me feel worse usually. Unless I hurt from doing to much then I need to rest for a bit before I continue. This getting older stuff is for the birds ;)

We didn't build - just saw it and took picture

Today woke with a sore back, sat around for awhile, but finally I ask Noni if she wanted to go out.. Out the door we went. I parked the car at a different entrance to walk around Nexen Beach and some of the Estuary - took longer than I planned but it was a good time out.

Great pics!! Does he not like the snow? My corgis are not crazy about it. But my bigger dogs loved it when they were still with us..
We only got a light dusting of snow and it is much colder. A lot of people in the state are snowed in and roads are closed We lucked out big time . Off to work with me :)

We are having some snow. I take Dalhouise outside. We walk on lease until we clear civilization - I let him go free and he turns around and head backs home.. I catch up replace the lease and continue on our walk. Half way around the pond walk I let him go free again.. We walk enjoying the snow till we get to the turning point.. One way is a long way home and one is short... Dalhouise takes the short trail..
What a funny dog !

The wind is picking up and I can no longer see the foot hills. I am guessing it won't be long before the weather gets here. I have all the feeders filled and my chores done ;) Left extra food for my client so I am ready .

Thank you. I am sure we will be okay. If the roads are bad I won't go out and I have plenty of fire wood,propane,and candles . I think they are only talking 4"-8" They are just not real good at snow removal around here .We are on a private road and the road off the highway is maintained.I have a low paying job and work 2-3 hours a day so it not worth wrecking the car. I will just leave my client with extra food just in case .

Forever spring, I am not sure about that but it sure smells that way today. We had -2c degree temperature for a couple of days and now that it is plus 5c the ground smells of life and earthly things. You know that wonderful odours that occur after a rainfall.. Forever spring

he must be getting tired..he is actually sitting





Did a natural workout this day.. Hike 2 km up hobbled 2km down and about 1.5 km around the lake.
The original plan was just to hike around the lake, but once I started on the trail I figured I would take Noni up the "hill" where I was a couple of years ago geocaching. At the top of the hill are towers that you can see for miles around - so I thought i would take Noni there so that whenever she seen these she can say I was up there.
Dalhouise was just happy to be outside on this brisk -2c degree sunny day.
