The great advantage of living so close to the water is that you never know what you’ll see when you look out one of the windows.
Sometimes it’s a fishing boat heading out to fill its nets, sometimes it’s a ferry taking passengers down to Vancouver Island, and sometimes it’s simply a digger floating by at the end of the day!
A Setting Sun + A Body Water = Glorious Views!
The Weekly Photo Challenge from the Daily Post this week is H2O.
This week’s letter from Lori Bravo’s 26 Weeks Letter Challenge is the Letter T. With so many glorious sunsets this summer there was no shortage of Twilight shots to choose from.
To join in the fun of this challenge simply create your own interpretation of Lori’s letter of the week with as many photos you like then title and tag your post with 26 Weeks Letter Challenge.
Thanks to low cloud cover Saturday you would never had guessed that the sun is now rising earlier and setting later. Consequently at 5pm as we drove to Terrace it was reasonably dark. A cruel twist of fate one might say. Why you ask? Well…
Initially I wasn’t going to take my camera but when Hubby exclaimed to me in one of those “but you’ve paid so friggin’ much for it why not take the darn thing” kinda voices, he had me reconsidering my decision. Then I’d actually taken the camera out of my bag, sitting it on my knee after noticing Bald Eagles were sitting close to the river, thinking finally I might be able to get “the” natural shot of an eagle.
How cruel it was then to have my camera poised ready yet due to this lack of light result in my dismal, yet very pretty in a technicolor kind of way, photo of a “sleuth” of bears!
Can you believe that in an area which is often to referred to as “Bear Paddock” there were at least six, if not eight, HUGE big black bears looking like Angus Bulls from the roadside? Or as Master Twelve preferred to say that they looked like and were indeed rocks. That was until one suddenly moved causing everyone to shriek, “they’re bears, they’re bears“!
Honestly, you could have slipped in the sarcasm that was dripping from my reply of, “oh really?”
Seriously though, these bears were HUGE and they were out in the middle of January, what’s with that? Do they think winter has been and gone, or were they still feeding in preparation for something we don’t know is about to come?
So as our snow once again begins to fall I’m considering in future when it comes to winter and snowfall advice perhaps I should be asking Mama Bear… “mum, how much longer?”
And there wasn’t a vampire or werewolf to be seen anywhere. It was just my boy and his fishing gear!
Even his mates were flying in to be with him!
Yep, if my son is going to have an interest I’m more than happy to support this one.
Twilight on the river tonight, just glorious. And as the last of the sun’s rays disappeared I was anxious for Young Sir to ensure all his gear was packed away safely, nothing left behind.
That and the Thai take-away dinner that I’d ordered for us before joining him should have been ready for collection so… “mum, how much longer?”
