Clearing the Head


Short photo gallery of an area once again near our house.  East in an area called the Fraser Valley.  Friday is it was cold for us…below freezing with a wicked win chill but ever so sunny.  I often post about my area mainly for those who are not from here.  There is so much to see this time of year if you like the outdoors.  Wild life, snow capped mountains, skiing for those who love to do that…still off road riding in many areas too.  No bike today, too much black ice when I left in the morning.  

So, take a look around.  I saw plenty of bald eagles around the Fraser river…many immature ones learning how to survive by the few adults who are now repairing old nests and getting ready for our 2014 eaglet season.  Many eagles down south have all ready laid eggs and have off springs developing into fledglings.  We start later up here.  February and March “N”estorations time and April egg time.

Skiing, Golf and Eagle Watching on the Same Day??


We were not able to ski today but wanted too….being on call for work got in the way but we did manage to get out for a drive.  How many places do you know where you can ski, play golf and eagle watch all in one if you wanted too?  Dec. 30th 2012 we watched skiers, people playing golf and taking pictures of the eagles that are still around the Fraser River eating dead salmon. 

Here is a few pics from a great day out!  Again, we do believe we live in such a beautiful place here in BC.  There are 4 ski mountains within an hour or so drive from our house and MANY golf courses.  Weather was bright and sunny, around 3 C or 34-36 F.
