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.

For A Friend Arija

For a dear friend in blogging land.  For you Arija.  I will miss your wonderful blog and your kind and warm comments to me.  You were one of the first bloggers that I met even though you were across the world. I know I am not the only one who will miss you.

Michelle at  Ramblingwoods, Nature Notes has done a lovely tribute to Arija here.  Arija's Blog is here.
