We left Coeur d'Alene, Idaho early this am and headed to the Port Angeles Ferry in Washington. Nice highways. Long drive. Took the ferry back to Victoria - nice to be back in Canada.
Long day!

361/365 Road Trip Day 3

This is why we stay at B&B's

Because Mr. Ramada and Mr. Best Western don't personally cook us a gormet breakfast and then wash the car for us before we head out on our next day!
Panorama is beautiful and if you are looking for a great B&B with wonderful hosts (Phil and Clair)and fantabulous food stay at Earl Greys B&B
I will be posting more photos of our brief stay in Panorama on the reg blog soon but right now I am stugging with this slow pc of my sweethearts. I think I need to by him a Mac Book Pro - what dya think?
Arrived in Coeur D'Alene Sunday afternoon. On to Victoria Monday night.

He lives in our back yard and he is the friendliest guy - always smiling, never a mean word.

351/265 It ain't Shakespeare

I bought tickets for the gang to see The Merry Wives of Windsor tonight at Shakespeare on the Sasktchewan.
Unfortunately my inner ear had other plans for me today. I hope they all enjoy the show.
This too shall pass...

350/365 Vase

I stopped in at a new flower shop today. It is called Essence floral design and it is on 7th ave at Princess. Very cool stuff in there but don't buy the big lime green vase that sits on the floor because I want it.
I did buy this funky little vase and tonight I cut a few flowers from the garden to put in it.

348/365 Bee

I love how soft and cuddly this stingin' bee looks all covered in the fluffy purple pollen

My 70-200mm lens really made me grin today.
Oh yes... worth every hard earned penny!

Love it when there is a crowd round the dining room table. I am completely exhausted, but I love it.

344/365 Rain

Rain, fog...we seem to be having quite the weather systems this summer.

If you were anywhere near downtown at 4 pm today then you were caught in that huge downpour.
I thought you would like to see just what that storm system looked like from Warman.

The skies just opened up and poured. I drove through it about 15 minutes after this shot.
My wipers had a little aerobic workout.

343/365 Fog

Unusually but beautifully foggy on the way to work this morning.
Shot this with my Canon Powershot while crossing the Circle Drive bridge.
While wishing I had my 5D mark II, a tripod, a place to pull over and a boss who wasn't expecting me in 10 minutes.

342/365 Maple

One of the best decisions we ever made (post kids and dog) was to put in maple flooring. Loving it just as much today as when it was installed over 2 years ago.

Hoping to get some photos of the Northern Lights tomorrow night ..... if I can wait up until it is dark.

341/365 Light

Saw the setting sun coming in the kitchen window and shining on the fireplace. Liked the colours. Took the photo.

340/365 Beans

From our neighbour...
Enjoying the abundance of the first fruits of harvest.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

339/365 Stagette

I had two photo shoots today.
One was a big family celebration in the country filled with outdoor fun and games and family photos.

The other was a stagette filled with very young glamorous and wildly crazy beautiful women  also playing games..... and laughing hysterically! It was actually a whole lot of fun but I think it didn't really get going until us grandparents left.

Let's just say things have changed a tad since my wedding showers 31 years ago. :)

335/365 - new perspective

I am sick - the room is spinning.... photo of the kitchen light - lay the camera on the table.
That's all I could muster...
Good Night

334/365 Light of the World

I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. (John 12:46)
