Saturna Sabbath

Good Morning, World...

Many of you will have already seen these photos or some similar if you follow our family on Facebook but I had to throw my day into the mix with some twists of my own...


I continue to shoot this barn/building/house/shack from various angles and one day soon I will tackle a watercolour painting of this subject...


I love it with the people in it...for me they warm up the whole story.


Even though I was having 'trouble' with my camera I was happy to be able to pull in these happy sea lions perched on a rock outcropping way off shore.  How do I know they were happy?  They would have to be happy with such a beautiful sky above, all that water around them and no orcas in sight to harass them.


We had gone, hoping to see orcas or humpbacks out there in Georgia Strait but all we saw were the sea lions and a very large container ship.

And of course I couldn't miss granddaughter's gorgeous shoes!


From every angle this little building calls to me.  Imagine living there during one of our famous wind storms!


At the head of the trail to the beach there is this modern convenience...very out of place but amusing, nonetheless...


And then there were some who couldn't stay away from danger...


It was a lovely day in all with a yummy lunch at the Saturna General Store Cafe and all the fresh air...

When we got home I captured the grandgirls and took a snap on my PhotoBooth...that is one happy grandma you see peeking out from the tangle of girls!


Wishing you all a great week...

  2. Kim, if you would look at some of the photography on the 365 Project I worked on last year you would see that the younger people are doing their photos and coming up with the artsy stuff you have been doing. I know a camera is every photographer's desire but you are doing very well on your iPhone. That Instagram program you use gives very interesting effects to your photos...keep on with your work. You have a good eye and doing a lot of it is the key to getting what you are looking for.

  3. I think the older we get the more we return to our childish ways.

    Just think what you have to look forward to!
