Being with good friends is always an amazing experience. After celebrating a life at last month’s funeral, that night we celebrated a birthday
The following weekend was warm and sunny. Tori was still in Vancouver completing his course, so I decided to take a drive out to Ruby Lake. Ruby Lake is named because the water turns red at sunset.
It was worth the hour’s drive from Halfmoon Bay – stunning views
hiking trails and a beach.
This is definitely somewhere we’ll come back to over the course of the summer.
The following weekend we took the opportunity of having Neil for the weekend. His parents have decided to move back to Edmonton, which broke our hearts. The sunny weather turned cloudy and cold, but that didn’t stop us from visiting the beach and eating ice cream
Spring has come in with a vengeance at Halfmoon Bay – the daffodils and tulips that I stuffed into a window box last September when we moved, started to bloom
So beautiful – I just adore Daffodils. Of course, they were too crowded, so not all of them bloomed. When they’re done, I’ll separate them out.
The first of the Rhododendrons – we have 4 surrounding our little cottage
and cherry trees
And then these little flowers that are dotted around all over the place
Last weekend saw us back in Vancouver for some shopping and one last visit with Neil and the family
It was Mother’s day the next day and Na-mee and Alex gave me a mug with chocolates in it (love chocolate)
The weather soon warmed up again and animals and humans alike spent many happy hours on the patio enjoying the sunshine
All too soon it was Monday and back to work. I guess Willow felt it too
Until next time …
