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.

My Canada

I am a Canadian Blogger.  I blog from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, in Canada.  This got me to thinking I wonder what people think of when they think of Canada?  My Blogger friends are from all over the world so I will show them My Canada!

These are a few of the people, places and things that represent Canada to me.

Our Canadian Aboriginal People.

Baby Birds and Beaches

Here we are again.  I will sprinkle in a few photos around in here and dance away.  These photos were taken a while ago on the West Coast.  Some were taken on the Broughton Archipelago and some at Barclay Sound.  We are at "B" for ABC Wednesday.

Afternoon in My Garden

Come and sit with me in my garden to see the secret life of the birds
that spend their lives visiting with me each afternoon. This could be
called Afternoon Birds in My Garden. I was very excited to get the
photo below as the Black Headed Grosbeak has only come to the feeder this one time!  That is Towhee above there.

Weekend Holiday Photo Mix

Here we go again..another photo remix! These are some of my favourite photos from the past.  I am on a blog text holiday and just putting in photos as it is very relaxing. This was a Canada Day Celebration at Fort Rodd Hill above.  This guy with the hat walked into my shot....I was laying down on some rocks way out on the point with a wide angle...I like the distortion. I tried not to get wet as waves splashed over me.  I always get wet.

I think these will be good for Sky Watch and Weekend Reflections.

Dazzling Photo Remix

Well not really DAZZLING! Today I am continuing my photo review of the past year.  It is holiday time and I am away from the computer most of the time.  We are at the Zenith of our popular meme, ABC Wednesday, and at the letter "Z".

Memories of Youth

I have been thinking of my younger days and going back in time and yearning to connect with people I have lost  touch with over the years.  The letter this week at a very popular blogging meme, ABC Wednesday is the letter "Y" for my thoughts of yesterday. I will include as many "y's" as I can and still yield some sense. I am doing photo mix, a year in review of some of my past photos. We are near the end of this series of  ABC. The top picture is of Long Beach, B.C. I grew up on a beach like this.
