Welcome to my world again

I thought it would be a good idea to move some pictures from my phone to my blog and voila, today’s post.

I bumped into a friend and he asked me what have I been up to, and this is it.

Mark Twain –

“Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.”

An assortment of pictures from recent weeks.

Can you match them all up ?

  • Skaha Lake paddleboarding, the lake is so calm at 7 am and that’s my son and wife.
  • Africa the cat, absorbing some rubs while purring like indoor thunder
  • I don’t know plants, but this Cambria Lily bloomed today within two days of being adopted and brought home. Looks nice!
  • Looking down on the world, that’s my son waving through a hole in the leaves in our cherry time – and they look ready now!
  • A double selfie with #1 son in Manning Park, this spot had a roaring creek!
  • My Van Gogh son turning a river rock into a garden turtle 🙂
  • The historic Sicamous on Okanagan Lake, a parked paddlewheeler.
  • A view of the Okanagan lake, looking a lot higher right now.
  • Africa again, dreaming of the tango.
  • Another lily, this one’s a tiger!

    https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsLovely insights in your last week, Dag. A boatride on the Okanagan Lake would be great – and cool!
    Hope the new week started well for you all,

        Too hot for me, but good for the lake. 🙂 What a wonderful place! Are you a keen swimmer?

        Penticton is at the North end of the Sonoran desert, snakes and even scorpions are rare but not unknown. I found a beautiful green scorpion in my shed a few summers ago. We have all four seasons, summer heat to 41 and winter cold to minus 25. Swimming in the lake is a treat I enjoy, so refreshing on a summer day. We are a valley with lakes strung together north and south with orchards and wineries on the hillsides. My little city is about 8 kilometers long with skaha lake to the south of my home just a kilometer and okanagan lake at the North end. Population of 33000 or so. Thank you for reading and commenting.

        Gosh, it sounds like a wonderful place to be and live. To have four seasons is a blessing. 🙂 In Norway (and Scotland for that matter) two seasons in a day is normal and on very weathery days even three.
        Thank you so much for taking the time explaining, much appreciated!

    Thanks for this! I really needed your post today. I’m still up to my eyeballs in unpacking and dust. I will look for the “Twain” in my day! Did you paddle board too? I’ve surfed, but haven’t tried it yet. 🙂
    Thanks for coming to the party! Have fun meeting the guests!
