Yesterday turned out to be a brilliant sunny, clean scrubbed day. It was one of those days that you wake up, look out and know you can't stay inside. Actually, Miles had a meeting to go to in Penticton (an hour's drive north) and he made me promise that I would enjoy the good weather. I was thinking of getting out for a coffee with a friend, or a small walk but before I could decide I got a real live invitation online in a chat from my friend Becky. Becky is an avid photographer - she's organized an official photography club here in our community. She invited me to go to our local Provincial Park on a picture taking mission. How could I turn this down?
MORE THRIFT SHOP PHOTOGRAPHY
I was not sure I would be able to find more pictures at the park, as its a place I've been countless times. I prepared myself to perhaps just visit and practice some self portraits using my tripod, something I need to learn. But you always find something new... and I am sure I took over 100 photos. I will be uploading them today and I will share with you over the coming days.
We met several squirrels along the way, including one who, Becky agrees with me, is aggressive and well, ugly, and we were not going to allow him to get too close. Obviously he has been fed a lot and expects food from you. There were other nice ones that Beck managed to get a snapshot of. Thanks for the wonderful outting Beck!
We met an interesting lady along the way, a lady visiting from Spain. We chatted and she may even be reading this today! If you are, I hope you are enjoying your time here. You said you are an artist and I did not get the opportunity to find out how long you are in the area and to tell you we have a wonderful Painters and Potters group here. You are welcome to drop in and paint with us if you would like, on a Tuesday or Thursday. Please email me if you would like to know more info. My email is email@example.com
The funny thing that happened when I arrived home is that after I got settled at my computer and checked my email - I got an OFFICIAL walk invitation from Becky - her message must have been delayed. Its funny how that happens. It makes me think of the movie we watched last night. Have you seen Lake House with Sandra Bullock? If you have not, its about two star crossed lovers who communicate via letters across time. Its funny trying to wrap my head around this concept. It was really a sweet movie with a minimum of rude materials, only a bit of swearing. (not that I like swearing) Definately a Chick-Flick.
