This is just some fun. I’ve actually been working more than I expected to the past 7 days, including over the weekend, so baking and cooking has had to take a backseat. Thank God my freezer is stuffed to the gills. We won’t be starving, that’s for sure.
Last Friday was an absolutely gorgeous day here on the west coast – kind of an anomaly. I needed to work but it was too beautiful to let it slide by when it’s been so gray and rainy lately. So I called my mom and we decided to walk the Sammy down at Mud Bay.
We were being silly and playing with shadows. That’s my mom taking the photo on the left (she has the same camera as me!), me, and Sam, not cooperating, on the far right. She took the first two photos in this post, and I took the last one.
We had a great time and I think we did about 10km. Sam slept for hours afterwards. That’s him and me… he’s my figurative shadow. Always has to be as close to me as possible.
Mud Bay is a small bay of the Pacific that sits directly south of Delta (a suburb of Vancouver) where I live. It’s one of my favourite places to walk Sam, especially this time of year. The mood of the ocean changes every day. It’s a migratory bird refuge and is teeming with birds all winter. I can’t imagine not living by the sea. I think it’s in my blood. I miss it when it’s not nearby and it calms me when I’m angry or sad. I love it best when it’s stormy and wild. But it’s lovely on a day like this:
That’s Mount Baker, just to the South East, in Washington State. It’s an active volcano and ski hill (yes, both of those things). I literally live on the Canada/US Border – good for those Target runs to get my Choxie Bars!
Back to food in the next few days. It IS Christmas after all! New lens article coming up too!
