Skywatch Friday: Who da thunk it?

In a few hours I'm jumping on a plane and I'll maybe have a view like this:




Why?

Yes, I'm going to Scotland! Woohoo!

As excited as I am about going to Scotland (and I am!) I am ooooodles more excited to be going to meet someone who has become very special to me.

And Skywatch Friday is a very fitting blog post today... cos that's where we met! Amazing! Thank you Skywatch Friday! :-)

Go here for more Skywatch Fridays... I'm going to go pack! ;-)

Scenic Sunday - Whetting my appetite

In a couple of weeks, it's the May Two-Four long weekend in Canadaland. In Victoria, there will be 'The 147th Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival.'

Yesterday there was a wee taster, a promo, held for the event; The Victoria Tartan Parade featuring a local pipeband, some highland dancers and a few heavy event athletes. I walked down to the harbour and took a few snaps.





I'm a sucker for an old pickup truck.



I liked the various cultural uses for poles in this scene.


I took a few videos too with my cheapo point n shoot and had to convert the vids using freebie software... but they're not too bad, considering.


A successful caber toss (if that's the wording?):

And the pipeband not trampling on the flowers:

I intend to checkout main event in a couple of weeks... watch this space!
