Autumn Fences

Posting to TexWisGirl's Good Fences meme today.  Thanks, Theresa!!

All these photos come from a short outing yesterday after Bill's dental appointment.  We stopped by Olympic Village Park on the way home.  Bill says that sculpture looks like a rocket taking off into space.  We've been reading Chris Hadfield's "An Astronaut's Guide to LIfe" so rockets are on his mind :)
 This little birdie on a stone fence sang a sweet song.
We can't name these, but Carol likes them and Bill says they look like a hedge fence.  :)
 I love waiting for Bill at the dentist's office because I don't have to have any work done..  yay!.. and the staff loves greeting Black Jack.  Bill hardly whined at all :)  You can see that he was feeling pretty fine afterwards as he talked to this lady and her baby daughter.  They were admiring Black Jack, but she was busy inspecting the creek.
 I think this is a passion flower.  If not, we like the name and it is in front of a wire fence.
 We sat looking over False Creek and though there's no fence here, we thought this was a beautiful Sweet Pea.
 Familiar sights..  aquabus ferry, and our much-traveled bike route across the way.
 Just two ships passing in the night  er..  day.
 More familiar sights..  skullers out skulling,
 and one new sight..  the Cirque de Soleil tents just rising on the opposite shore.
 We admired the lovely autumn reflections in the pond by Olympic Village..
 and then we passed the dog run fence as we made our way for lattés at Harrison Gallery.
We browsed an art catalogue and loved Rod Charlesworth's paintings.  This one is called "Newfoundland Coast" and its colourful fence makes it stand out for this meme.  That's it for today.  Have a good weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy fence watching!


  1. Hello Carol, Lovely series of images from your outing. I love the purple flower, it looks like our clematis. And the shot of the grasses is so pretty. Great fence finds. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. some nice fencing along the waters and love the stone wall. glad bill survived. :)

  3. Love the fencing in real and in that painting! Nice to see the familiar tents of Cirque Du Soleil. I was looking at the tickets today since I am on their mailing list. Too expensive for us at this time. I loved seeing it when I did years ago. Good to hear that Bill was okay after the dentist appointment. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Definitely my favorite fence is the Newfie one, Carol! But that's because I spent many wonderful times in Newfoundland! I enjoyed you walk with Bill and Black Jack! Happy weekend, my friend!
