Only four days into the new year..two work days and the rest are ‘off days’…
On New Year’s day we ventured east towards the town of Deroche..
We had two reasons for going for a drive..
one was for ‘pepperoni, beef jerky and fries’..
..and the other was to look for the ever elusive “Eagles”..
We made a stop at Kilby Provincial Campground..
..there were some ‘die hard campers’ sitting around a roaring campfire!!
..remnants of ‘dead salmon’..
..no running free for the ‘golden boy’..
there were far too many dead fish..we knew it would be too tempting..especially since Tucker likes to ‘roll’ in all kinds of ‘interesting smells’..
we did find somewhere for him to run around though..free of dead fish..
Heading towards home we stopped along the side of road..spotting some eagles in the trees..
a cloudy New Year’s day comes to an end..at least we had some success..
back to work for two days..and then Saturday morning, the sun was shining..a bit chilly out but a good day for a walk on beach..
Destination?..’Coney Island?’..no not the on the Eastern Seaboard..
White Rock..we have been here numerous times over the years..and a walk along the shores of Semiahmoo Bay is always a lovely way to spend an afternoon..
quite a few people had the same idea, so we were not alone..lots of groups with cameras, and huge ‘lenses’..trying to capture the ever present ‘seagull/ pigeon?’
hey..it’s almost 12:30..time for lunch!! ‘Coney Island’ was our choice, when we first arrived it was closed?..what a disappointment..now what?
but by the time we walked to pier and back again..the gate was unlocked and the fish and chips were being prepared!!
lunch was delicious..along with the strawberry shakes!
So glad the we made the trip to ‘Coney Island’!!..a lovely ‘date’ afternoon!!
..On the way home we stopped for a few groceries and when we were putting them away, I had opened a package of ginger snaps to put in a jar..much to my dismay, more than half the box of cookies were ‘burnt?’..
..sure the box only cost us a $1 but it’s the principal of the whole process..so needless to say I sent off an email to Dare to complain..maybe there will be a few coupons in the mail from them?
It’s not the first time I have written an email to a company about their product..remember the broken milk bones?..I received $10 worth of coupons from them.
..sometimes it doesn’t hurt to complain..the ‘squeaky wheel gets the grease’ after all..
..so where was Tucker today?..well since no dogs are allowed on the promenade at White Rock..he was getting ‘de-stink-i-fied’..
..he smells wonderful again!!..at least until the next time!
Thanks for visiting…I am hoping that this year will be a ‘blog-worthy’ year!
