Touring MY Islands (WPC: Tour Guide)

This week the Daily Post for their Weekly Photo Challenge is asking us to be a Tour Guide by sharing images of where we live. Driving the children to school, I found what could be many captures to highlight our small town. Then the sun came out…

Although we’ve had no real snow of late to talk about only rain, just outside our town has had a surprisingly lot of snow in just the last week alone. In fact our highway, the only way in and out of town, was closed for 24 hours due to a high avalanche risk.

When the sun broke through the clouds yesterday morning, this short respite in weather allowed the highway to reopen thus allowing our life to continue as scripted. It was like watching the heavy stage curtain rise to reveal the performance behind!

Morning at the Marina (MM2-15)

 

Wow, with summer now here and summer vacation just weeks away for us, it’s incredible how quickly the weeks are already flying by. Almost time to begin thinking about Christmas cards, lol!

Until then though, time for another Monochrome Madness from Leanne Cole Photography and once again, here’s another I’ve my rejects from her water themed week at the beginning of the month.

Morning at the Marina MM15

The resort we stayed at may not have been all that salubrious, but waking up to this each morning in Ucluelet more than made up for this. And although not crystal clear reflections, I still like the “feel” this image portrays.

What I particularly like though with converting this photo to black and white, it disguises the hideous bright red coke machine that resort across the water has near its front door. Of all the places why there I wonder.

Oh… My… Gosh!

Something we haven’t experienced for quite some time now… low cloud cover and rain… what a wonderful way to greet the morning… LOVE IT!!!

Well, it was a lovely way for ME to meet the day at least. Miss Nine slept until 11.40am with Master Eleven breaking all previous records kept by anyone of this house-hold by not waking until 1pm! Miss Nine and I were soooo very jealous (me incredibly so). After the clock chimed midday Miss Nine kept looking at Master Eleven’s bedroom then me asking… “mum, how much longer?”
