Fruits in Season




Mountain Ash Berries

Oregon Grape Berries
On our walk around today we found a few different fruits in season. We wonder if you know them. At least we succeeded in taking a nice walk and a few photos. That's what we set out to do and we managed it. Unlike Andy Murray in Cincinnati who set out to make the semi-finals but was beaten in two sets....

Hello! Wonder what's coming?

Would you like one? Yes please!

Yummy! Sweet and Juicy!

Back to the car!
On our walk around Linden garden today, Hanne discovered some lovely ripe plums on a tree. They were delicious! These photos tell the story!

Having a dip!

Help with the steps

Rest in the Shade
Even young people....
When viewing life on the beach we often see people caring for each other, mothers and fathers caring for children, children caring for pets and siblings, elders being looked after by their older children. Yesterday we saw this older couple caring for each other....
We were quite surprised when this young lady came running in from the lake after a swim and threw herself wet and dripping onto her boyfriend's knee! I think they may have just arrived by Greyhound Bus and gone straight down to the beach!

A Parade

The "Moonshriners"

Cashmere Washington

The Yoga Lady

Queens and Princesses?

Husqvarna cuts the best!
All the world loves a parade! This week-end it is the Peach Festival in Penticton, and here are a few images. Parades are many things, including a display of young beauty, a chance to dress up funny and fool around, and an opportunity to try and sell something, or promote a religion. I liked the chain saw float and the yoga and the brass bands best. Enjoy!
