Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and 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.

    1. I will be over there in a while to comment. I really enjoyed having a great look at your blog and will be looking forward to getting to know some new bloggers. I have tried to follow some of the blogs I used to follow before my followers gadget broke and also tried to find some new blogs to replace the loss of our prolific Tina. Although she cannot be replaced.

    1. Yes she published a gift everyday for us. I just thought it would go on forever. I always liked how she could find some small thing in nature and think it was so wonderful and so beautiful, like a leaf or a stick or ice or anything.

    1. I guess we all just go on blogging Denise. We have lost other bloggers along the way but I have trouble getting over this one.

  14. I just read your post about Tina. I had noticed that she hadn't been posting as I checked her posts regularly, and thought perhaps she had gone on holiday. I was shocked and so very sorry to hear about her accident. I will really miss her wonderful posts. She brightened so many people's lives. So sad.

    1. Sometimes we never know why a blogger suddenly departs from us. But this time we knew right away and it was a shock. I have found out later that some of my blog friends passed and it was still hard then because I never knew at the time. At least now we all can share our thoughts and it does help.

  19. Death often arrives without warning and leaves us as a loss for words; so glad we have images to express our sorry. Very appropriate memorial for Tina.

    1. Thanks Kate, yes this week I am scared to read the other blogs or go to them, two bloggers left us unexpectedly and some others want to quit. I was away from blogging for a while and found out when I returned several bloggers had left, many link-ups were gone and a few had passed.
