That’s So 2020 – Freeze Dried

All photos taken December 2, 2020 …WEEKEND WINTER Along our Capilano Park walk, we noticed that a lot of plants and trees seemed to have had their leaves freeze-dried in place or maybe they were just too lazy to fall. In any case, they still retained a certain element of beauty as the late fallContinue reading “That’s So 2020 – Freeze Dried”

That’s So 2020 -Endless Summer

After our November 1, 2020 bike ride, we stopped briefly at home to pick up coupons for Dairy Queen.

Treats collected and stowed, we headed for home for some much needed deckContinue reading “That’s So 2020 -Endless Summer”

On our October 28, 2020 walk, the water fowl were prodigious around the Terwillegar footbridge. It was like an old timey school reunion. They all seemed to have their preferred places to congregate.
