Forest at Blue Lake 2018.

We just arrived back home and drove our RV up to visit our friends in Boston Bar.  We used our campsite at the picturesque Blue Lake and painted the interesting forest in the back of our lot.  The subtle gradations of the greens into grays made an interesting composition as the weather this time of the year is still cold and cloudy; but the air is fresh and alive with the clean scent of nature.  We hiked the mountain trails and looked down upon Blue Lake and the views were wonderful.  The drive coming back home along the highway was long but comfortable in our vehicle and today the sky was blue.  We noticed in our garden the songs of spring so sweetly provided by the robins.

This Winters Moon Over Cape Scott Provincial Park 2018

We walked back through the forest of Cape Scott Park,
At the beautiful time of the day when dusk is nearer, 
The winter moon is serene,
For the light around is cast in blue,
And illuminating ever object the same colour.
There's that distinctive chill,
We move quicker to warm ourselves on these mysterious trails,
Along this sleeping land which earlier was warmer,
But now has become colder and silent,
The winter moon shines brighter,
Like the beacon of the night sky it will become,
Only the impressions of our foot steps on this floor of earth will remain.

The Winter Solstice 2017

We enjoyed a cold sunny day on this winter solstice in our backyard.  Some of the remaining autumn leaves glowed yellow and golden from the sunshine that is lower in the horizon.  When dusk arrived some high clouds moved in and were beautifully pink.

We're All Heading Home 2017

We moved up north for almost six months as we both had teaching positions.  Our contracts were completed and we're all heading home to our place in the south.  Our families were looking after our gardens and house and what a wonderful adventure and memories we will always have.  The trees have almost shed their leaves and last years autumn left a more vivid impression of colour.
