i’ve added more images to my rotating header (what i especially like about this wordpress theme – aside from just a clean look). i have now 12 images that randomly rotate and appear at the top of my blog each time the page is refreshed.
each of them have a story of their own:
[edited – update] frozen – this is the newest one. i took it just this morning (december 22nd, 2013) after a freezing rain storm which has swepted across our city for the past couple of days. it finally will end sometime later today but the ice will probably remain for a bit. branches were so heavy from the ice, one of our trees in the backyard split in half and our patio is now completely blocked off from one of of that tree.
Rue D’ Baga – snapped from our Port Orlean resort streets while we stayed in Disneyworld earlier this year. the street name was called, “Rue D’Baga” which was where our room was on.
rain on windshield – taken during our little day trip to niagara falls on our 8th wedding anniversary. yes, it was a rainy day but actually, it made for a nice, quiet day since not many people were traveling through the niagara wine route.
green leaves – taken on one of our many visits to highpark.
sea shells – this was from our last full day while visiting ada and hoa in vancouver (while they were still living there). the sea shells were dangling from the deck just outside this little place called Go Fish. best fish taco’s ever!
northern california – these next two goes back to 2007 where doug and i did an anniversary trip to san francisco, monterey bay and carmel. the trip also doubled as an excuse to visit friends who just had a baby girl. the below photo is part of the 17 mile drive, followed by another taken along highway 1’s coast.
the roundhouse – another photo from our vancouver 2012 trip. we snapped this photo while just doug, chaeli and i were exploring randomly on our own through areas of downtown vancouver – gastown, water front and where this photo was taken, yaletown.
neys park – our first time using our little old trailer! we took a road trip to thunder bay in 2011, tugging doug’s late grandfather’s trailer back, while stopping at neys provincial park to camp out for one night. it was a beautiful park but way too cold to enjoy once the sun set. i was glad it was only just for a night before we drove to a nice, warm motel in the souix.
killbear park – the next two photos were taken during our summer camping trip of 2010 in killbear provincial park. hobbes was only 3 1/2 months old and had only been with us for three weeks. and what happens? he encounters a black bear!
peacocks – this particular image of three proud, male peacocks, was taken when we went to the zoo with tai, B and their kids, m & e. it was their first trip to the zoo as a family. all the kids look so different now. i am favouring this one at the moment because of the beautiful, intense blue.
