Hi, I'm Back!

Sorry to all that visit me in blogland...I've been missing.  Sometimes life gets busy...that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  January was well, January...getting over the Cmas buzz, settling in to wait out the month.  I don't ever like January very much as when Cmas is over, I'm ready for spring, but alas, nature doesn't see it my way.  Late January and early February brought us some cold weather here on Vancouver Island.  Temperatures in the minus....like -10! Yikes!!!  To folks living in temperatures of -40 and such, I know I must sound like a wuss. :)  But it is not our typical winter.  Birds didn't know what to make of it.  A couple of swans got stuck, as in frozen to the water, about two weeks ago.  A fellow took his kayak, went over the ice, and freed the birds. 

Here are some photos from our outing early last week.  Hubby and I managed to get some time where we could actually go out together, at the same time!  Found a really fabulous gal to spell us off with Front Desk.
Eagles in our trees making all sorts of noisy comments as we drove away.
Stopped for lunch at Salmon Point Resort and enjoyed the fireside.  Then went walk-about the property there and enjoyed the warm spring-like sun and clear skies.
Come summer time, their patio is a great place to spend some time. 
 Salmon Point is also home to a small marina and a RV park. 


Calm waters this day. 
Across Discovery Passage is the mill town of Powell River.  A cloud bank hides the mountains.
Later in the day the clouds disappeared and the Rockies are back in view.
Some wintery growth supplies a big of color... 

I luv big old trees, and old fences... 
Our leisurely drive home was under blue skies. 

One more picture before we go inside.  It`s been a very nice relaxing day off.  All the fresh air today will make for a good night`s sleep methinks.

Until next time, MO
