Down time

A few photos posted this week from lots of sitting down time a weekend or two or three ago. This week has been busy, so I’ve kept this brief. You’re welcome!

Must be Fogust…

We are making the most of sunny days, particularly now Fogust is well and truly with us. To be fair, even when many mornings have started foggy, most days have ended with warm afternoons and sunny evenings.

Is that fog rolling in back there? No…

The work on the trail has been moving along, and we can’t decide if we like the slightly cooler damp mornings – not too hot, but the mosquitos still come out to play – or do we prefer the warmer afternoons with fewer mosquito friends, but more wasps and a sweatier environment?

No bugs! Or sun. Or horizon. Or- ok, I’ll stop now.

Ha, they’re both pretty good, so it’s not really a choice, and with the rain staying away and progress being made, we can’t complain. Those mosquitos though…

A partial harbour view

When the weekend comes around, quiet spaces on the dock or on the beach are just fine, with nothing much to bug us in our down time.

Another partial harbour view. What a sight!

Well, that was brief, as promised. Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. I enjoyed hanging around down at the docks, pc. Those fishing boats are impressive. Wishing you continued success (and no rain interruptions) on the trail work. Give my best to the mosquitoes, they all know me.


    1. Thanks, Jet! I know you have a higher tolerance threshold for our mosquito friends than I do! They haven’t been biting so much as hanging out and whining. Or was that me? We’ve been rubbing peeled cedar bark on our skin as a bug repellent the past few days, an old trick our forestry elder taught us, and it’s pretty effective, and far less toxic than commercial spray.


  2. Love the shot of the Nemesis between Scout’s ears as much as the wonderful foggy scenes! The perfect ship name for your swatting skirmishes with the wasps and mosquitos (hope they don’t bother you while you are on chainsaw duty on the trails) and while I would love some of your Fogust weather about now, please make sure it arrives without the bugs. Take care out on the trails and enjoy the Harbour View!


    1. Thank you! The bugs are out in full force – today started wet after a very warm weekend, and goodness, we had to fight them off. A chainsaw doesn’t deter them, but we run one every now and then to let the bears and the cougar spotted in the last couple of weeks know we are in the area.
      We are definitely enjoying the Harbour View, and will be doing so again soon!
