Monday & Meeting a Blogger Friend

Today is a beautiful, sunny day in Vancouver.  Though there are some grey clouds around it is a bright and beautiful day.

Taken Monday from my balcony.

Yesterday, it was so lovely to meet Kay from Medicine Hat and her Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel blog.  Kay came into the city while visiting family and friends in the Lower Mainland. We had a chance on Grey Cup day to meet and get to know one another over coffee.

The coffee shop was jam packed with students studying and cramming and people watching the Grey Cup game on the courtesy screens. At times it got a little loud, but we carried on talking over the din.

Kay and I have a mutual blogging friend, Jo, and that is how we came to know each other's blogs.  Kay has a kind heart as she was one of the people who contributed to help this little boy in Kenya.  We didn't get a chance to take a photo together.  Perhaps next time.

This is Kay.
 Kay is such a world traveller and we had a lot to talk about.  If I keep on travelling perhaps I can catch up to her journeys and perhaps some day we will have another chance to meet again.

I'm happy because this is the second blogger buddy I got to meet in person.  Both experiences have been wonderful. I hope I get even more opportunities in future to meet more blogging friends.

 To cap off the day, the BC Lions won the Grey Cup!! Yeah!!!

I was pleased to see I had captured seagulls in flight in both my photos today.


  1. Have just caught up with your blog Penny - that chocolate 'thing' (brownies? pudding?) looked to die for. Fancy living in a location that has such a knockout view from the window... mountains are by far and away my favourite type of scenery, and I could sit and stare dreamily at them all day... And the pink flowers are so beautiful - you see the beauty in everything.

  2. Hi Caroline, so nice to see you. Glad to hear you caught up with my blog posts. I'm glad to you enjoyed the chocolate easy and so tasty! I'm very blessed to have such a wonderful view of the mountains. The view changes daily in the Fall and Winter. Hope to catch up with your blog soon. xx

  3. Sounds like good fun! :) You take the greatest pictures!

  4. It was, Mic! Thanks for the kind words :-)

  5. meeting to blogging friends are really amaze.

  6. Hello Joyful.
    Great to take one of your blog friends - yet I have never met or spoken with one of my blog friends.
    I have also just blogged since April 2011.
    Great pictures you show.
    Wishing you a good Tuesday.
    Hugs Hanne Bente ♥

  7. These are such great photos! It sounds like you had a good time. That is the wonderful thing about blogging, it opens up so many opportunities to meet amazing people.


  8. GN Shaw, yes it is really amazing to meet blogging friends.

  9. Hanne Bente, you haven't been blogging very long but you have a good following already. I think it will be easy for you to meet blogging friends, esp. there in Europe. Have a wonderful evening, Hanne. Knus, Joyful ♥

  10. LV, thank you for the visit and the photo compliments! I do love to take and share the pics. It is so true what you say about the blogging world. Have a wonderful day. ♥

  11. wow...what a perfect view from your balcony....nice shot!

  12. Thank you, Dhemz. I do enjoy my view ;-)

  13. How exciting..terrific photos Penny! The snow on the mountains below are gorgeous!! The last couple mornings its been pretty cold for us but the previous snow melted but if this keeps up we should get more.
    Wishing you a day of sunshine (hugs)

  14. Hi Regina, I'm still having to wrap my head around you getting snow!! LOL. I would love to see it up close some day. It was a beautiful day of sunshine today. I think tomorrow is rain but the rest of the week is supposed to be sunny.

  15. Penny are you kidding? there are two ladies with a checkered scarf and one has glasses so which is the blogger??
    Glad that you were able to meet up though.

  16. Hello Heidi, it might be difficult to see with 6 eyes ;-) but the woman with the checked scarf is actually shown twice in the photo. She is wearing glasses in one shot and not in the other.
