.. a whimsical look at our world
Sculpture in the park …
Look over there …
It’s the Osprey sculpture!
Gorgeous photos-The mountain is majestic. Thanks for visiting me. So glad you dropped by.
I love the second one. That rivals a view from a beach–I can get lost in any view where I can see that much horizon. I guess I am too claustrophobic for mountains.
When i first moved here to British Columbia. I too felt hemmed in. Claustrophobic. Almost 40 years later it changes. Although the drive out to prairies, is always exhilarating. For as you leave B.C. it opens up into “Big Sky” country. Sky from horizon to horizon as far as may be seen.
The one of Yorkshire you admire was taken when visiting my relatives in 2005. My sister, brother-in-law and I. Went there to visit a dog breeder and a nice drive. Culminating in Bakewell, a Derbyshire town. Home of the famous Bakewell tart.
Lovely photos. You live in the midst of beauty/
Thank you Kitt. Too many people who now move here, complain of lack of entertainment,shops, fast food outlets, etc. I wonder why they come here in the first place? Many years ago. A friend was living in a small cottage in mid-Wales. But was wanting to move and asked me if I wanted to take the rental?
I asked, why do you want to move? He said, “When I live in town and freak out, I can go out in the countryside and everything is better”. “When I live in the countryside and freak out, I’ve got nowhere to go”. … I could see that. Thankfully it’s never affected me thusly.
Living here has been idyllic. Except too many city refugees, seem to come here with different values. Everyone wants, “the view”. When the views are all around. Everyone wants beachfront and manicured lawns. I just don’t get it? They want the frog habitat and where the herons used to fish. They are prepared to squish into ever smaller lots, just to be on the beach and so on. Like I said, “I just don’t get it”?
Lovely how you captured the light play on the bridge. In love and light Cheryle
Thank you Cheryle.
Really I had little to do with it. For it was one of those spectacular mornings in late March. Just crying out for a few snaps. … and really the photo did not do justice to the actual light play and shadow happening that day. Cheers Jamie
It is all in the eye. Without the eye you wouldn’t have seen it to take the picture. In love and light Cheryle
Great photos, and I have never ventured to want to move to another State or Country yet. IN my older years now of (48) LOL, well, the winters are bruttle…Want to move now, but looking for work. HEE hee. I wanted to say thanks for all of your helpful advice and comments on my blog. Jackie~
Well thank you Jackie!
North America is a huge land mass. Different States and Provinces, have their own flavour. I expect you’ll get your opportunity sometime?
Having been to many different countries and continents. They’re not all they are cracked up to be. If it were not for my family over there. I doubt I would have gone the times I have?
My own Province B.C. is about five times more land mass than England. I’ve really only seen a little of it. These days I’m cautious travelling in winter. For some years I used to travel throughout southern B.C.
I don’t care for motels. I prefer sleeping in a tent. These days that can be harder to do but I can still do it.
Yes, the eastern U.S. has had a couple of hard winters. The Chicago area is notorious for both wind and nor’ easters. Ever hear of the Canadian Shield? It helps protect the western side of continent. We’ve enjoyed a milder winter this year. Yet it can still be cold overnight and it takes most of the day to warm up above freezing. At least here in south east. Yet nothing like the snowfall eastern U.S. and Canada gets. Even on our worst years.
The solar system is passing across the “great divide”, of Milky Way. There’s a possibility it will become worse? Yet by 2019 we should be past the strongest aspects of it?
Lastly thank you for your support also. Congrats on your own domain. I have done similar but am moving over to WP.org. With a fully functioning theme? Hopefully not too much longer now? Cheers Jamie.
Thanks for the visit and like
You’re welcome! Mountain Bluebirds are an occasional visitor to the west kootenays. Blue would be my favourite colour in nature, too. Water and sky are both colourless, yet our eyes see it in marvellous shades. For whatever reason blues in nature resonate. Cheers Jamie.
I sent along my email address
Sent my reply … Cheers Jamie.
Hi thanks for stopping by my blog…you are tooooo kind. It’s funny how we adjust to new place, then they become old places. You said you use to be claustifopic and now look at the loving home you have made. Thanks for sharing. Jackie 🙂
Thanks, but I sold it last May and have since moved to Canadian west coast to be closer to my son’s family. Now here is new. When I get back from visiting my Mom, etc, in UK. Will resume blog and posting. With new and different scenes and takes on a newer chapter of life. Cheers Jamie!
The first guy looks like he is surfing, fully clad! (I’m talking about the sculpture.)
Yup, that looks like it. An odd sculpture.
