Alberta in Color~

Fall is falling in ethereal Alberta.

The Larch Trees,

are turning

glorious gold.

It snowed last night,

dusting the mountains with powder.

You can just see Jim here on the trail of gold!

Soon the larches will drop their needles and winter will arrive.

I have been surprised by wifi reception, but tomorrow we head further north and should be out of range.

Cheers to you from Alberta in the fall~

Little Cabin, Big Woods

Cozy and cute,

with an awesome backyard.

All the comforts of home,

in the wilderness.

It’s good to be,

in a little cabin,

in the big woods.

I like the neighbors!

Cheers to you from Alberta, Canada~

Note: No reliable wifi here, so bye for now!

First Day, First Photos~

It is really hard take an ugly photograph in Canada.

We came to see the leaves change,

and they are just starting.

We are in Alberta now,

heading tomorrow into the mountains where wifi will be spotty.

Will check in when the satellite enables, but until then, cheers to you from geraniums growing in the middle of a river!

Kissing Cousins~

Beautiful Maui,

has beautiful critters. (Red Crested Cardinal)

Did you know? (Spotted Dove)

Birds are close relatives, (Myna Bird)

to turtles?

I certainly didn’t know, and neither does this baby myna!

Turtles seem to know everything, (Green Sea Turtle)

so this friendly guy,

who swam right up to me, probably wouldn’t be surprised.

We even have a colony of green sea turtles living in San Diego Bay. Check them out, they’re beautiful.

Swimming hole coastal Maui. (Click/tap to enlarge).

We are flying off soon to Canada, but it is still:

Cheers to you from Maui~

Holler Blooms~

Prickly Pears,

with pretty petals.

Beautiful blooms,

on bristly barbs.

Cacti,

charm,

with catty claws.

Cheers to you from The Holler’s captivating cacti~
