Rain!

Only 8mm, but still. I knew that six inch diameter spider was trying to bring the good news!

Bird Break

Made a little friend whilst impromptu-visiting Birds of Eden! It was ever so chatty, and must have been a pet at one stage because it knew quite a few phrases. Sadly I only had my iPhone on me.

Back on the Farm

Smoke from a fire in the background; still burning. 
Great gardens, nice wine at Babylonstoren.

Meanwhile…
The fire is burning behind the guava tree
And the temperature measures forty-three
There’s no water to spare
White smoke hangs in the air

Some history:

Aurora Canada!

 We’ll have to console ourselves with coffee and ice cream. And maybe carrot cake.

The Smell of Snow

Control the dogs, woman!

It’s a bad idea to get off the sled to try and sort out tangled leashes. They say one needs all five senses to be involved in a vivid memory. Taste (snow in your mouth as you faceplant, not-so-gently nudged by the butt-butting sled behind you), sound (the yodeling of some hyper-exited hounds, and your own heavy breathing), touch (phew, that snow is cold, it’s -27C out here!), sight (yep, that is golden-saffron-yellow dog pee on the snow under your face), and smell (Mmm, fresh dog poop all over the camera lense; the aroma that lingers…) We made a memory.

It was so much fun.

Hoooowl!

Luggage sleds

Glass igloos: no Northern Lights!

Let’s warm up!

Such splayable hooves!

And we’re off!

Puppy!
