Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog
Welcome to my blog world. This is a photo blog, poetry and short story blog about my life on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

Posting these shots for Sky Watch Friday and also for Weekend Reflections. Thanks to these memes for gathering us random bloggers together for a moment or two to share our journey.
Years ago, around 1877, there was a little cabin here and the owner Nelson Parks would distribute all the mail to the locals so of course they soon came to call the area Parksville! Isn't that brilliant!
Parksville is on Vancouver Island and is 37 kilometres north west of Nanaimo. Originally it was a logging area and now it is a tourist area with long sandy beaches. Hope everyone at Sky Watch and Weekend Reflections has a great weekend.
