Another Amusement Park

With my Father heading south of the border for the day, my older sister and nephew had the urge to go to Marineland with Forrester’s friend Ryan. So if we wanted to spend the day visiting with my oft-not-visited family, it meant going against all my urges of supporting a Zoo (of sorts), that housed […]

Return to Burnaby

Alas, all good things must come to an end. We were fortunate to have 3 whole days on the farm midweek.

Balboa Park and […]

So now it’s time to share. I’ve been alluding to this story for ages in my blog. And here’s the honest-to-goodness non-fictional tale which won us the […]



Sadly, a garbage feeding frenzy.



Makes for an interesting ride (those prone to motion sickness need not apply!).



Just a nibble??
