I think I jinxed the weather!

It’s such a beautiful Sunday that I put off all my work plus put off writing the Sunday whirl and C and I decided on a little Sunday Sbux experience.

We chose an Sbux in Horseshoe Bay, West Van, got our treats and went to sit down at the shore and watch the ferries.


It didn’t take long before we, (actually our very berry coffee cake slice), was noticed by a crow.

We threw him a crumb and suddenly there was an attempted murder.

Then, someone couldn’t keep his mouth shut and a big seagull landed in front of us and looked longingly at the cake with his beady eye.


The crows, not to be outdone by the glorious snowy whiteness of the gull, showed off their cleverness by forming a five of spades thereby earning more cake.

At this point the seagull decided to shout all sorts of colourful bird expletives at the crows, (I think he may have given them the middle wing feather too), and so we left.

We drove around the corner from Horseshoe Bay to Whytecliff Park and had a good beach comb.

We did the only sensible thing on a lovely Sunday like today.

We took lots of photos and enjoyed the sunshine to the max.

    That drift wood is beautiful. Crows are super smart birds. Don’t know if it showed today, but they are.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I liked the spade formation for eating cake.

    That would be awesome! I will let you know when I’m coming next. Many moons ago I lived in Lions Bay, now I’m on the very far north in the Yukon. (No crows here but a lot of ravens…)

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful 🙂 The ocean and sunshine–can’t be beat!

    Crows and Ravens are amazingly intelligent. I’ve read so many amazing things about them, fascinating. And they like to share–they learn and then teach every other crow/raven the trick. It’s incredible. Used to watch the ravens at Bryce Canyon floating on the thermals–playing follow the leader. Love them. <3

    Thank you for such a lovely visual break–I've been reading contracts all day-about to go cross-eyed x-x
