Lining up to get on board. Cruising, especially getting on or off the ship, involves lots of lines.

Over the weekend of Sept. 22-23, Ros and I joined a group of her Eric Hamber High School teachers on an overnight cruise from Seattle to Vancouver. We got up at 6 to take the bus to Seattle at 7, got on the boat at about 1 pm, left the dock at 4, and arrived in Vancouver at 6:15 the next morning. Very short but it gave us an idea what cruising was like. I think I prefer more active holidays -- it was like staying in a big hotel or a resort. Not unpleasant but not very exciting. Lots and lot of people.

The Open Road

Ah, the open road. It was a great trip, a loop from La Pine through the mountains and back. I very much enjoyed five days with my little brother.

Mackenzie Pass

Going over Mackenzie Pass. Snow still at about 5300 feet, but not on the road.

The Sisters, Oregon

Oregon was beautiful. Here, from the first day, is a picture of the Three Sisters mountains.

Hummingbird appeared on our back porch, sipping nectar. Great to see it.

My dear wife in the centre on strike with fellow teachers last March. The union makes us strong - though the cut in pay for the four days ate into our finances! Oh well...

Frankie is not sure about this business of standing or walking on his own at 11 months.

Snow for winter 2012


We did have snow this winter and some cold temperatures. Quite bracing. Now (Jan. 21) we're back to normal with absolutely no snow on the ground. Will it return?
