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.

Still Sick Weekend

Yep I am still sick.  Gotta cold and flu bug.  So I am in the mood to just put in pictures and I have no text as I have a high fever and who knows what I would put in for text....you would think I was intoxicated!!!  I am glad you can not catch this bug or virus from my blog!

Slowly Getting Around

 Hello, I am slowly getting around to your blogs.  It will take me a while as I have come down with a cold and an infection.  Just wanted to let you know that I saw your comments and loved them and will show up at your blog as soon as I can.  It is really really nice to see all your blogs and can't wait to read them. I am so lucky to have this group of bloggers.

Back With Unusual Birds Today

Today I will pop in some of the more unusual birds we have been seeing over the last few month.  It has been a great time for birders in this area as we have had several birds visit us.  We are at the letter "U" at ABC Meme and I am rather late for the party as I missed the whole alphabet this time...yikes.

Taking a Break

Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Discover Vancouver Island

I grew up in a rain forest.  Actually in a rain forest park.  I did not know anything more than the ocean, the trees and the sky then.

My eyes were the eyes of a wild child.  I felt the wonder of being free. I belonged with nature and I felt her bond with every step.  She was my friend.  My one and only friend.  I ran along white sandy beaches miles from anywhere alone and free.
