Summer Solstice

After what seems like a very wet spring “summer” is officially here. While it has warmed up it seems that things are still pretty wet. The solstice this week was a beautifully calm (and dry!) night and was a perfect opportunity to enjoy a nice fire down at the beach.

August Wallpaper

I just realized today that it is a) a new month and b) I forgot to do a wall paper for last month due to being on the road. Here is one for August!

The End of Summer (Unofficial)

For many people the labour day weekend normally marks the end of summer, the last weekend before people are heading back to school or work.  Although we have had some stunning weather this summer it seems that mother nature wanted to remind us that the summer is coming to an end and to get ready for the rain. On Friday night as the clouds where just binging to roll in for the weekend I went down to Dallas road near Beacon Hill park to take in the sunset.

Summer Storms

I was in Lantzville for the weekend and on Saturday night we had a crazy sunset followed by an even crazier lighting storm. Before the other weekends storm I can’t remember the last lighting storm so this has been a very lighting filled summer which mixed with our hot dry weather has not been good for our forests which all seem to be on fire.
