Bits of Last Weekend -1

We are always delighted when our kids and grandkids come to visit us on Mayne Island... and to have them all home at the same time is pretty special.

Sherilee, Alan and Seth arrived first and on Sabbath afternoon our walk to Bennett Bay provided many photo opportunities.

I asked Seth to look into this hollow log.

I took this shot of Georgeson Island from the point.

Looking north towards Vancouver the shipping docks and ferry terminal doesn't seem all that far away.

Everyone was into taking pictures.

And sometimes  camera's were shared.

Shirley and Sherilee were excited to see the arbutus tree was in bloom...

Have you ever seen these blossoms up close before?

Meanwhile Seth carved his identity into another arbutus.

Isn't this a lush, green time of the year?

As we were walking out the last rays of sunshine added yellow to the trees.

Looking back into the sun coming thru the trees.

On the way home we stopped at the Lighthouse Park at Georgina Point.  Seth wasted no time before heading down to the water.

While I got focused on shooting a few flowers...

And sunlight maple leaves...

Alan and Seth were scrounging for starfish and sea life around the rocks.

It was a lovely afternoon to be on or near to the water.
