Trestle, Revisited

[nggallery id=10 template=ramblerahoy]

Two weeks ago. Kinsol Trestle.

Adventures in real winter

I decided to experiment with B&W a little. Which do you like better?

We had an excellent sunset as well.

My weekend in Instagram

First weekend of December tradition

The Dark Knight is totally a good decorating movie, right?

Parksville to Port Renfrew

[nggallery id=7 template=ramblerahoy]

On the way back from our weekend in Parksville we saw: rain, sun, waves, beach, bears (4, including 2 cubs), deer (1), birds (lots), changing leaves, evergreens, and a really huge sitka spruce.

The longer scenic route is usually worth it.

Fort Rodd, Take Two

[nggallery id=6 template=ramblerahoy]


After an amazing Thanksgiving potluck Saturday night, and a pass-out sleep, we adventured to Fort Rodd! We saw some sleepy deer, a mystery lizard, and a sea lion swimming around the lighthouse. After much cavorting and picture-taking, we needed tea and pastries. Yep, must have tarts. Merchies saved the day!

I can’t believe it was almost too warm. On Thanksgiving weekend. In October. Wow. How was your weekend?

Image Explorations, Part Three

[nggallery id=5 template=ramblerahoy]

Just before going to Image Explorations, I got a new phone (the water damage/corrosion finally caught up with me). Turns out that the camera on that thing is pretty good, considering it makes calls.

Top two are with an HDR app. (Not bad…) Last three are with Pudding Camera. (Weird name, cool effects)

So, I might be a month and a half behind, but I finally made the time to put up my pictures from July!  These are from around the pond at Shawnigan Lake School, Kinsol Trestle, and the broken glass is from a junkyard :)

Fort Rodd Hill

[nggallery id=2 template=ramblerahoy]


Today we explored Fort Rodd Hill. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as we did! It was interesting enough for Eric, and had info boards in front of major buildings, and there was a lot for me to take pictures of. Too bad I forgot my second battery in the charger at home. Oops. Oh well, I’ll just have to go back :)

It’s definitely affordable, less than $4 for an adult. (A nice change from attractions downtown.) We’re looking forward to going on the lantern tour in September, and might have to check out the Old English Car Affair as well. (Might be time to go crazy with HDR. MWAHAHA.)

*Note* I’m experimenting with a new gallery system (thanks, Eric!), so now if you click on an image, it appears in a fancy lightbox! It also makes uploading way easier. Hopefully this looks the same on all computers.
