1. Birds seen October 10th, 2015 for Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday meme.
2. A recap of our day with two delightful friends, Mary and Bev.
*I've already strayed from my carefully laid out plan to spend no more than an hour writing a post. Back to the drawing board tomorrow :)
Part 1: Wild Bird Wednesday
A lone white goose hung out at Sunset Beach with the Canada Geese.
Part 2: A recap of our day today with Mary and BevMary (Lilee -Jean's grandmother) drove for over an hour from the Fraser Valley to spend time with us in Vancouver today. We laughed and laughed with her and with her friend, Bev. Our first stop was to look at the cormorants on the "Brush with Illumination" sculpture by Buster Simpson. Mary had a new and wonderful hat. But more about that later.
here about one determined young cormorant that struggled with landing technique.
earthquake last night, the first one that I remember since 2001. That inspired some shopping today to buy canned provisions. The bang was pretty frightening, but no one was hurt and no significant damage was recorded. I come back to my original idea that "we're very lucky" to live here, but no matter where one lives, making a plan for possible disaster is a good idea. Bill and I are working on it.
Bill posed with Bev and Mary inside the "217.5 Arc X 13" Bernar Venet sculpture. That title describes its mathematical composition.
Then, she totally gives in to the moment.
Brix & Mortar. The bride must have been quite cold by the time she finally walked through the velvet curtains. I hope she and her new husband will laugh a lot in their future life together.
Special thanks to Mary and Bev for sharing the day with us. Thanks as well to you for stopping by, and to Stewart for hosting Wild Bird Wednesday. His meme is well worth a visit as it will take you to amazing birds all around the globe.
