Adventures with Enid

We had the most glorious paddle on our three day weekend together so i thought I’d show you some of my fav shots from it. This Enid and I love her. We paddled on Village Bay Lakes and Main Lake Provincial parks on Quadra Island. Awesome.

how many dog photos can one BLOG have?

Well here’s 5 more! I call this installment “happy in the sun”.

Every day with Amos is awesome.

Dirty bath water

I spent the entire day thinking about putting sunscreen on. It was warm, hazy, partially sunny. Started the day in a sundress, sweater & gumboots. As predicted I was in flips by the aft. The Grateful Dead blaring on Cortes Community Radio (check it out online!).

Amos dug up his newest knucklebone ~ I thought it was a dead animal from a distance, totally gross and likely buried deep. I shared my Thai smoked salmon and beer lunch with him but not with the eagle in the tree above. I was hoping he would drop a feather, but non.
Here’s how far I got today. I also repotted & planted several things which I’ll blog another day. I’m pooped and real dirty.

Well good morning sunshine!


Sunshine and wildlife noticings from the deck, FINALLY this morning! I’m workshopping a light sweater over a sundress for my coffee with the puppy dog, but I’m confident that the clouds will burn off this aft! Just in time to dry out some earth and wood so I can work on my new wee greenhouse !

While making coffee this morning ~I noted two things. Well three, if you include the fact that I was up by 8am by choice.

We replaced our deceased after a week (they got the ick) goldfish, with two new ones. Laverne & Chiffonda are female cobra enslers (like Eve Ensler = vagina monologues). They are yellowy, see throughy, cold water, non-goldfish. All this lovely intro aside ~ after 4 days we are down to one. Sigh*. The survivor us Laverne. Maybe it’s a sign that I should return to vegetarianism?

Seconds after the ceremonial flushing, I spotted these two outside the cabin. So quiet and fluffy and peaceful. Amos was 4 meters away and didn’t even budge.
