Yesterday was hot. I cloistered myself in the office at home all day, wilting with the heat from the computers, until after dinner I gave in. With the promise of ice cream, I got Eric to go for a drive with me down to Beacon Hill Park. The sun was perfectly low and golden and the temperature was finally perfect. I think a peaceful hour by the ocean is just what we needed. Though I will say I am paying today for running through the tall grass – I can’t seem to stop sneezing. I think it was worth it though.
I decided to experiment with B&W a little. Which do you like better?

We had an excellent sunset as well.
Taken around Kamloops yesterday.
I didn’t get any pictures of Canada Day – ours was pretty subdued, but still wonderful. But I ended up at the beach on the fourth of July, and I got the unexpected treat of seeing the holiday fireworks across the way in Port Angeles, Washington. :)
So, it’s been way longer than I thought it had been. Oops! I haven’t had a proper day out in a while, but here’s a little of what I’ve been up to:
The last one also shows that we just rewatched the Lord of the Rings movies (Regular, not extended cut. That will be another weekend, I think.) I definitely <3 those films. Not just because they still look awesome ten years later, but for me, it’s impressive for what went on behind the scenes. The army of crew and extras. It’s truly an epic set of movies.
Okay! Soon I will have a -related- bunch of pictures. Happy Tuesday!
