~ A little Saturday Adventure ~

Had a little hour and a half along Alta Lake today … a little cloud cover, a little sunshine peeking through, a little snow on the ground and a little Donner dog for companionship! (Donner means “thunder” in german, kinda goes along with Blitz the cat. Blitz meaning “lightning”.) We walked along the valley trail towards Wayside Park, I took a couple pictures and then … Continue reading ~ A little Saturday Adventure ~

~ “Fall”ing for Whistler ~

My favourite season ….. Fall ….. Autumn ….. I love the colours …. they’re everywhere….. on the ground, in the trees, in the distance, under your feet….. The crispness in the air, the warmth of the sun on a cold day! I love venturing through the forest …. it never ceases to amaze me!!  Mother Nature is truly amazing!!         Everything seems so … Continue reading ~ “Fall”ing for Whistler ~

Again, as the Collander in Trail, we have been coming here, The Dragonfly Cafe, for 10 years, every August while we are here for the Annual Memorial Soccer Camp in Salmo, in the Kootenays, British Columbia (Canada).

~ Mountains to City in 90 Minutes ~

All I had to do was bring my Power head, for my Vacuum Cleaner, to Amine and have it looked at and hopefully repaired right there, right then. I guess I could possibly find someone else to help me out, someone in closer proximity, but I have known Amine now for about 16 years! So, I do want to continue with him, we have a vacuum cleaner … Continue reading ~ Mountains to City in 90 Minutes ~
