A DAY IN THE PARK

I always enjoy reading blogs where people describe an outing, they have been on....
Today, was such a day.  There is a small community, nearby where I live, that actually is quite interesting.  Today, being Sunday, is their Farm and Craft Market.  More crafts than produce, but still interesting.  They did have fresh strawberries for sale, jams and jellies, artwork, jewellry, etc.  As the season progresses they have more local produce.
I had a friend visiting so we wondered through their Museum. For a small town it was very informative about the area, and lots of pictures of times past.
While we were there, we also went to a small Regional Park, Called Hardy Falls.  It is a very interesting Ecological area, in the fall, the  Kokanee spawn there.  We also saw a bird called the American Dipper that dives underwater to find food.
All and all a nice day.

SUNNY OKANAGAN


















More Thoughts on the subject....



Quote/Poem



"I'd rather be a could-be  if I can not be an are;
Because a could be is a maybe
Who is reaching for a star.
I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been by far;
For a might-have-been has never been,
But a has was once an are."

-----Milton Berle-----

A WELL DONE MOVIE

The other day I watched a movie that I thought was very well done.

The title of the movie:  "SHINE"  made in 1996--about a pianist, David Helfgott from Australia.
