I realized when I got home and uploaded from my camera, I really didn't have much "blog-worthy" to post, but that's fine, because that wasn't my intention! We ate and drank and shopped and had a big walkabout with the dogs. We shared a lot of wonderful conversation and I came home feeling very lucky to have such good friends. Kim has much better photos on her blog, but here are a few that I did bring home as a sampling.
I took this through the kitchen window with Pete's 500 mm lens. That branch was many feet away; I've never used such an awesome piece of photo equipment before!
These two pairs of geese taunted me all weekend. I patiently waited, a number of times, for them to break out in one of many territorial spats between them, as the resulting fireworks would have made some really intense pictures. Or so I thought. I never did get anything really interesting. It seemed that no sooner did I leave my "blind" on the balcony, that's when they would decide to squabble and engage in all kinds of mini-wars.
And this is my most favourite poodle in the whole world. I lost my heart to Miss Bunny-Foo when I met her for the first time as a 12 (I think) week old puppy in October at Kim's. I went gaga for her, and was tickled to hug and be hugged all over again, and double the fun, as Bunny now has a half-sister Barbie. It was marvelous to have all that poodley fun. And one of the best things is that because they don't shed, I didn't have to worry about bringing home strange white hairs for my own dogs to be jealous about!!
