Summer Arrives!

July 14, 2012

Finally!  Several sunny days with no rain and I am wearing cool clothes instead of socks! Today I put away my socks and flannel pj’s without trepidation that I would have to pull them out again.  Since then we have been enjoying the finer aspects of warm weather.  I have made delicious strawberry jam and filled the freezer with juicy raspberries.  The garden is starting to grow, at least the parts that aren’t being eaten by slugs and squirrels.

We have made a few trips to enjoy the wonders that warm weather brings to our province.  In June we took a trip to Kamloops to visit the BC Lions at training camp.

It was Jeff’s birthday so he got to pose with a couple of cute cheerleaders!  I got to meet Korey Banks and his Grey Cup ring.  It is no wonder that he needs to rest that arm on my shoulder!

The following day was still warm so we headed  out to visit the animals at the wildlife park.

  The animals enjoyed the heat too!

  With the visit of my cousin we took a trip to Hell’s Gate, which is tourist attraction along highway one, a cable car across the Fraser River. Due to excessive rain, the river was at flood level in places.  A magnificant sensory experience seeing the strength of the rushing water while listening to the roar.

 

On a trip a little closer to home, we visited the Richmond night market.  Everything cheap that you really don’t need, and all sorts of food you wouldn’t probably cook for yourself at home.  It took us about an hour to decide what  to eat!

Today we will spend a quiet day at home, digesting our garlic squid in a cup.
