Time for the weekly photo wrap-up....this week we.....
did so much and I have so many photos some are from the last two weeks. Ron went on another boat trip and shares these two photos with us. Top picture is the sunset over Sidney from Sidney Spit Marine Park and the picture below is sunrise from the same place.
We went up island and saw the Aerie way up on the Malahat below picture.
Ron took me to see my favorite place, Fisgard Lighthouse. This is the header on my blog also.
We went to Pedder Bay and saw two Halibut, actually the fisherman had three halibut around sixty, forty and forty four pounds.
A seal in the water was getting some of the left overs but we found out that the seals preferred the salmon.
I found a Red-tailed hawk out in Sidney but it looked too old to be Spunky the hawk, still was nice to see this hawk. It was very spooky and not tame like Spunky the baby hawk was.
Perhaps this is the hawk I took video of in 2015.
We saw the Dragon Boat Festival downtown.
This is what the original canoes in the inner harbour looked like. (From the B.C. Archives photos in the harbour).
We went to a Raven Rave party out in Sidney. The Ravens always have a party and we are invited each year. They love the corn fields and the pear trees out there. I love how they talk to each other with quite a lot of dialect and then they do that flying game where they fly together upside down. I always wonder what they are saying.
Late one evening we were in the farm fields in Sidney and so many geese came in, hundreds came in from all directions. Then something spooked them and hundreds of geese flew over us and the sound was deafening.
I missed Spunky the hawk so much and was so despondent and sad that Ron took me to the Pacific Northwest Raptor Centre in Duncan. It was wonderful there and I took masses of photos but guess what?? We have had no rain for three months or something like that and as soon as the main show started, it rained, look see the rain below. I did not even have a plastic bag or anything to cover the camera! It was hot and sunny when we left home!
