|English Bay Beach, Vancouver, British Columbia|
Joining in with Skywatch Friday this week.
Have a great weekend everyone and
a wonderful start to the month of August.
|My wonderful care package; coffee mug included.|
|Downtown in the West end of Vancouver near Davie St.& Beach Ave. People everywhere were enjoying ice cream. There was a nice breeze at the beach.|
|A view from the beach to the west. There are ships and sailboats everywhere!|
|The Honda barge being readied for the Celebration of Lights (Fireworks) competition which begins July 25/15.|
|On the map you can see Bellingham in relation to Vancouver, and also Kamloops to the north where we travelled on Saturday.|
|Big farm and silos in Chilliwack.|
|Cornfields of Chilliwack. Hot weather is playing havoc with this year's crops.|
|Rocky mountain and babbling brook between the City of Chilliwack and the town of Hope.|
|Getting close to the town of Merritt. The landscape changes to sand and desert spaces.|
|Leaving Merritt and a view of the lake to the east.|
|Getting closer to Kamloops|
|The descent into Kamloops|
|View to the north. I brightened this photo a bit so you can see the town better.|
|I took a few photos of the flora and fauna along the way. I think this photo was taken between Merritt and Kamloops.|
|This is actually a view from the mountains on the highway travelling south to Vancouver just after dusk.|
|I love the deep, rich colours in these plants.|
|Perhaps you can just make out the waterfall beyond the palm fronds.|
|Koi Fish Pond|
The tree this year is much narrower and a bit shorter so it can be squeezed into small spaces. I made these two winter scenes ...
