Hello from Monday morning, since I was a complete goner Sunday night
(goner – British term for a person beyond help or recovery…that was me last night)
Hello everyone, well, I’ve had a weekend an a half! It’s been a most amazing weekend made even better, I suspect, by no computer. I forgot the charger in Vancouver and so went computer free till Sunday night. (Don’t tell Robbie I said this, but computer free is really lovely sometimes.)
For anyone who somehow missed my excitement and preparations? I spent the weekend on Vancouver Island staying with my cousin Jon and his family and visiting with my friends Nick and Joyce Bantock for a Nick Bantock workshop.
It was lovely being with Jon and Lynn and their lovely daughters Nicole and Michelle and I enjoyed every minute.
Thanks so much for your hospitality and friendship guys. I loved catching up with you and am so happy Nicole and Michelle payed piano for me. It was also good to talk about some family matters, and your Molly is so cuddle worthy it’s ridiculous.
(More about Nick and Joyce, the workshop and the outcomes tomorrow.)
PS if you enlarge the top photo, you’ll see a bald eagle sitting on the light in the right top corner.
Sharing with Judith and the mosaic bunch
Sounds like you had an awesome weekend in Vancouver Island. The photos look awesome, I love the Owl. Have a happy day and week ahead!
Could you believe that owl! There were two, but I only could photograph one. They were flying across the garden and when Jon and I went for a walk around his five acres, there he/she was sitting on that huge cedar. I felt so very lucky. (And a little worried for Molly, but Jon said she’s way too fat to be in danger…lol…I covered her ears!)
sounds like a perfect weekend getaway and i swear R will not hear about the off line time from me
Lol, good! I don;t want to make a habit of it. 😀

You certainly had a fabulous time as these pictures show….a spot I have always wanted to visit.
It’s lovely there! Sort of a rural oasis just far enough away from the mainland and the rat race to make it relaxing and bucolic. I hope you do get a chance to visit. 😀
You obviously had a great time on the island and no computer for a few days is a good thing!
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Veronica.
I did Judith, and I reluctantly agree with you…lol. Thank you again for hosting. 😀
Looks like a wonderful weekend–thanks for sharing its beauty and pleasures with us.
Wondering: what app or program do you use to create mosaics? I use PicStitch but…
It was wonderful Melodye. 😀 I only use photoshop for edits of all kinds. Chloe uses a bunch of different programs on her Mac, like picmonkey, and I don’t even know what. Do you want me to ask her? 😀 Big hugs.
Looks like an exciting and fun-filled weekend, well worthy of being lived entirely offline. And going to a Nick Bantock workshop makes it even more so!
It’s true Sharmon! Robert is always “encouraging” me to leave my pc behind and I guess this time he sort of got his wish…lol. It felt really freeing somehow, but also a bit maddening. 😀
Wonderful photos V .. Sometimes it is so nice with no computer! Glad you had a lovely time 😀
Beautiful photos. I was mostly computer free all weekend, too. Does a soul good sometimes. Glad you enjoyed your visit to our island.
that sounds and looks(!!)
like a fine weekend!
