The Beardies and I take a Holiday

Beardies on Mt Maxwell

To celebrate my birthday, I bundled the boys into the back of the car and took the ferry across to Saltspring Island for the day. It was a beautiful sunny day, if cold, so a perfect one for a Day Out. We took the 9:00 am ferry, got there just after 9:30, and drove to Mt. Maxwell, where I took this portrait of the boys (I took a self portrait of "intertext with beardies at 51" but it was pretty crappy so I think I'll keep it to myself!). Then we went down into Ganges (the main hub of "civilization") for lunch and a poke round second hand bookstores and other nice shops, then to Ruckle park for a fairly long hike and just made the 3:50 ferry back to the "big island" and then home for a hot bath and supper.

What a nice way to spend the day! More pics can be seen at my Flickr site.

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…
