This was the sky last night, as I looked towards the mountains from our balcony! Note…the snow has gone! We’ve had just day upon day of great weather, and it’s really very unusual, but who’s complaining!!

Again, an amazing sunset!!! Those are the mountains in Victoria, off in the distance!



This morning, while Tom was attending his Health Heart Exercise Program, I had a little exercise of my own. With a map in hand, I set off to explore! Here’s a few pictures!

They have these painted eagles all over the city on different corners. Last year they had painted bears, that where really fun to look at, but they auctioned them off to lucky people who could afford them.



 Getting ready for the 2010 Winter Games, the city has placed this HUGE flag around a large building. The building across the road, caught the whole image.


 This is a constant reminder of how many days, hours, minutes and seconds, until the 2010 Games begin!

on the top: “Placed Upon The Horizon (Casting Shadows)

Not sure what that is suppose to mean, but it’s a beautiful building, and Tom said, it used to be the Court House.

It seems to be a place where rally’s and protest’s seem to take place and it always has many people gathered in the grounds. However, it was pretty early, but the back of the building has a few “overnighters” sitting on the steps.

I just liked the look of this clock, off in the  distance.



I tend to take picture’s of almost anything that catches my eye, and I liked this one of the kids in uniforms climbing on this tree.

When Tom was finished, we met up with Martin and Joan, Gloria (Joan’s sister) and Karen, their cousin who was visiting. Little Byron, is sitting with Grandpa and Grandma!

This is Byron and one smart little boy, who understands basic signing with his hands, that his mother taught him. It’s incredible how easy it is to understand what he wants, when he can’t talk yet, but signs instead! He’s pointing at his Nana (me), who was surprised that he knew what I’m called, as we don’t see him very often!! He’s  cutie.

Looks like he had a full belly and it was time for a snooze!

When I got home, I still had some energy left, so went for a walk and couldn’t help snapping these beautiful flowers.
