Lovely Fall Weekend

We are having a lovely Fall, hope you are also.

I took these pictures at Goldstream up by the weir.

Then we went to Burnt Bridge up at Koksilah and I used some programs on the camera. There were great Reflections for Weekend Reflections.

This photo for Sky Watch is a lookout area in Oak Bay.

Found some crows at Cattle Point.

This photo of Moses Point is for the Weekend in Black and White.

For Saturday's Critters.

She is so beautiful and lovely.

For Floral Friday Fotos.

For Pink Saturday.

Found a momma deer with two babies in the woods today.

On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I have over 300 videos on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. My Instagram is here. You can find me on Twitter here.
