Next stop Naniamo area on Vancouver Island
My wonderful niece gave us a grand tour as she has been there a few times previously, thank you Ashley. I was wanting so much to see a white raven though it was sad that the only one we saw was behind bars, I presume due an injury. I could not get a clear decent shot, so thank goodness Gerald got good footage on his mini-cam, which I will use when it comes time to do the painting that has been gestating for about a year now.
Hey let me out, I want to fly!
Turtle, turtles, we love turtles, ya, ya ya!
There is a pathway around the grounds that take you on a mini-tour past Australian black swans, turkeys and a rooster to this sweet little pond full of turles.
We got to attend a talk on Barred Owls at the centre.
They had some good displays of bird and animal skulls and birds nests but my 50D camera was still acting up since it got out of rehab so I ended up with a lot of crappy-no-focus images, grrr!
As of this point the camera is back once again for repair. Maybe I should have stuck with a Rebel as my old original one is still going strong. Or as my cuz says "should have gone Nikon"
Look at me, I can fly free!
An artsy-fartsy shot of a weathered carving.
this may be my favourite shot of the day, reminds of an Emily Carr image.
