Saturday again, this time no rain

Squalicum Harbor (picture by Lily)
This morning was such a gorgeous day that we had 24 walkers show up! I tried to stay up with the others so I didn't stop to take pictures, but Lily went with a couple of other ladies who didn't want to hurry, so she took lots of them. I asked for some of them, like these. Everything is in bloom!

We walked from Adagio's Cafe to Squalicum Harbor, around Zuanich Point and along the promenade that graces the harbor. A light cool breeze off the water made it seem a little cool, but really it was just perfect. Without the breeze we would have actually been a little on the warm side. That's saying something for those of us who live here. It's almost 70°F right now.
Strawberries beginning to ripen
And a little tidbit from my garden. It won't be long now before I'll be tasting these strawberries. The raspberries are still just past the bloom stage, but they are hanging heavy on the bushes. We should have a bumper crop. The bees have been working overtime out there, too. I'll be harvesting the first greens from the garden today or tomorrow and will be sure to take pictures, of course.

  2. I have strawberries in flower here, but suspect the plants are deluded.
    Love your colourful walk. And Squalicum sounds as if it should often be raining. Or is it just me who thought squall as soon as I read it?

  4. I definitely do not like hot weather. It was 30 C here today and not nice at all.

  7. Your group keeps getting bigger and bigger. I can see that taking pictures would slow you down. Lily did a great job.
    Yum, strawberries.

  12. A bumper crop of raspberries! I drool. One of my favorite fruits. And, such beauty surrounds you. In fact, speaking of record crops...24 hikers is a record too?
