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.

Sky Water Earth


Today the sky, water and earth in photos.  The things I love the most on this earth.

The above photo is for Sky Watch Friday. I think it is Island View Beach. You can see Luna the dog in there somewhere. All photos are much larger if you click on them for the slideshow. Below is a photo taken at Butchart Gardens for Floral Friday Photos. Photo taken in the fall.



The boats reflecting below are for Weekend Reflections. It is the fish boat dock in Sidney.  I really like fish boats as my dad was a fisherman and I grew up around boats for a short while.


Another photo of Butchart Gardens for Scenic Weekend. I seem to take this same photo every year. It always feels magical to see the colors in the fall there.  You really feel like you are in a painting. Sometimes the colors are so bright I think that the gardener has painted them.


Pink Flowers for Pink Saturday taken in the fall at Butcharts.


And for the Saturday Critters we have a deer in front of someones house.  He was very alert as someone was walking a dog beside him and his lady was nearby.

Have a great weekend bloggers and birders!  Thanks so much for your visit!  I am so happy to be back blogging and to see you all.
I have a new computer and I have fixed my old computer also by myself!  If you are having trouble with your windows updates check out my page on Windows 10 Update Issues.

  3. What a great variety of photos you give us from a dramatic sky shot to the colorful Butchart Gardens and more.I find myself taking the "same" picture frequently. Where is the law that says you only get one shot at something?

  11. What a wonderful sky in the first photo.Scenic Weekend does indeed look like a painting. Some views just never get old - Monet knew that. The handsome fellow in the last photo looks so posed that he almost looks like a statue. Have a great weekend.
