A sign of the times...

Cruising aboard our classic Chris Craft  is a great way to enjoy the quiet life.
The ocean tides lull one to sleep and relaxation is a sure thing.
With plenty of time for reflection and book reading one does need to make the effort to move the body. Daily swimming, kayaking are weather dependent so walking is my favourite option.
I like to walk on the beach and explore the areas surrounding the marinas and marine parks.

I was not expecting to have my walks curtailed because of this...

I thought it might be safer to explore the docks and gardens of the local houseboats.
I'd be scared stiff to encounter a large black bear.

A sunny planting
I am particularly fond of this foliage
nature looks like she has been painting the leaves.

Any chance that Johnny Depp is about?
I'd love to catch a glimpse of him!

This industrious honey bee is collecting pollen on this allium alba.

I followed an interesting walkabout 
dotted with metal sculptures...
someone has been very crafty and creative recycling all this metal.

Have a Happy Friday
it's the gateway to the weekend.

What are your plans fro the weekend?

My husband and I are belatedly celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary 
(July 20th)
with dinner out 
which just happens to be at a restaurant with a water view
and while it might be onboard our boat
it's not!


  1. Happy Wedding Anniversary! I hope dinner is romantic and delicious and that you two get the best table in the house.

    I think that metal sculpture with the green face is cool.

    Beware of the bear or bears! xo, A

  2. How lovely to be aboard a boat, so perfect for this time of year. Glad that you stayed away from the bear, they can be very dangerous! Happy Anniversary.

  3. Hello Hostess
    I've missed your blog due to moving and internet hassles so I'll be tickled pink if this comment gets through.
    Happy belated Anniversary to you and Mr HHB.

  4. Happy anniversary! Those are some huge hex nuts in the sculpture. My plan is to stay off the computer for the weekend.

  5. Happy Anniversary! Your photos are beautiful. It looks so cool and nice where you are.
    May I ask what kind of camera you use?

  6. That looks so utterly idyllic, have a lovely anniversary dinner together.

  7. Then you will enjoy this!

  8. SheWhoAccessorizesWell- I use a Canon Power Shot SD450 Digital Elph
    it was a gift a few years ago from my husband...a gift that keeps on giving!

  9. Duchesse- Oh that is scary..."small bells and smells like Pepper"...
    I'll have to keep her out of harms way!

  10. What a great way to spend your anniversary...except for the bear. Enjoy. Ida

  11. Happy Anniversary! Looks like you're already well on your way to a lovely anniversary weekend

  12. Happy Anniversary! Being on the water is a perfect way to celebrate.

  13. Happy Anniversary...and a great way to mark the occasion. I hope you're having wonderful weather wherever you are!
