When in doubt, skate it out

I knew it would happen! I knew if I came to the Cariboo I better drive around with skates in the car because eventually, I’ll come to a frozen, snow-free lake. And then it happened. Driving past Williams Lake I noticed people walking and…

Bluebell heaven

You know, it’s pretty rare for me to get here at the turning point of the seasons, but this year I managed just that. Four weeks ago, the trees were bare and the ground covered with frost, and today suddenly it’s practically summer! One…

Adieu April showers, bring on the May flowers!

Hi everyone, This was going to be a hello from Sunday night post, but then I didn’t think I had much to say (past the car boot sale on Sunday) and then I thought that maybe I wanted Monday to finish up some art…
