Island living

I often talk about how beautiful the Island is and how lucky we are to live here. Ms.Mamma and Minotte suggested that I take some photos of where I live and post them. Here goes!!! This is the first of many Island photos I'll be posting.

This is the Bridal Veil Falls in Kagawong. The first photo was taken in the fall two years ago and the second was taken last winter. I'll try to get out and drive around so I can take more photos soon. Doesn't the winter photo look just magical? It looks like a winter wonderland. This year, we don't have that much snow or ice....yet!

Hi Chrissy! It's bloody 7:24 in the morning here and I have to go to work. Just checking your blog on my way out. Please post more photos of your island. I'd love to see what it's like there. Who knows maybe one day you'll find Yuka and me on your doorstep! ;-)

Ya, we went there right? Is that where the salmon go upstream at the end of their run? Miraculous!

Miss Moneypenny said...

soooo beautiful! Looking forward to seeing more, Chris!

You took us there when we came up to visit and I remember walking on that beautiful trail and seeing the salmon go upstream to spawn. It was so sad when they reached the falls and had nowhere else to go and by that time they were so tired and spent that they just end up dying there. You said it's part of their cycle of life, but it's still sad! Man, those salmon were HUGE!

awesome, chrissy!

Hi Carol! We were spoiled for the beginning of winter with all the warm weather and no snow. All of a sudden, we got snow and it was -12 degrees this morning!

Ms.Mamma, there are tons of beautiful subjects for you to photograph up here on the Island! :) You and SF would love it here! LOL!

Stephen, did you know that the Island has some great bike tours (both motorcycle and bicycle)? Oh, and I'd love to see you and E again! Last time I saw you your wedding??? No...when you visited Toronto I think?? Anyway, we're due for another visit! Wish I had the chance to visit you guys before you move back to Canada!!

Karina, you'd love visiting Canada! Though like the US, Canada's really a large country so it would be hard to soak up everything. One of my friends from Australia did a North American tour and visited a few places in the US and a few in Canada. Sadly, she's seen more of Canada than I have (and I live here!!)!

J, I'll try to post more pics as soon as I can. Oh, thanks for e-mailing that butternut squash recipe!! Sure is a winner!!
