Feels Like Summer

It's been a while since I've posted here and today is finally the day. The weather has been so beautiful and warm the last few days that it feels like summer is finally here. I couldn't resist taking my little dog out for a nice walk to enjoy the weather.

I don't know the name of these blooms but they seem to grow wild all over here.

This is half of a staircase that runs from my street, down the hill to Beach Street. I usually try to go down it but not up it.

These are Rhododendrons which also grow wild; not just here but all over British Columbia. I've seen bushes covered in blooms that were eight feet high.

I sat for a bit on a bench near the water and just looked out over the ocean to the islands. It's just so peaceful.

Here comes the ferry!

We have a very busy working harbour. Besides all of the boats on their way to Alaska, we have lots of fishing boats here too.
