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. I am also at my Facebook Page Island Rambles or Islandrambles at YouTube.

Panama Flats Pond

Panama Flats Pond:

I moved a while ago and it was a difficult move for me.  It was not far from the other location but was more inland from the ocean. This week is "p" week at ABC so will toss a few of those here and there. I will post about Panama Flats.

Great Horned Owls Victoria

Planter Box Owls in Victoria, B.C.

Only Great Horned Owl babies today.  These are the Planter Box owlets. These two shots were taken in the sun so the light was really good for the long lens.  They are so cute and seem to like to cuddle and hug each other a lot.

The Weekend After

Well it is the weekend after a sad week in the news.  Unbelievable tragedy in Boston and now the explosion in Texas.  I hope the world can just stay safe.  My heart goes out to those affected by these events. It is incredibly sad.  I feel unable to do much of a blog this weekend so just a few pictures and quotes.

The New and The Old

 Northern B.C.

 Now here we are with some new and some old, nostalgic photos from the past.  Some are taken with the new tiny Panasonic FZ200, some were taken by my husband nearly nine years ago, some taken recently by me.  Join me in my nostalgia. (using up the "N" words for ABC Wednesday). There are numerous photos in this post so I put in a break.
