Trip to the Forks….

>

This afternoon…mum and I went to the FORKS it was fun to walk around… and check out the antique store..and then sit on a bench, enjoy the sunshine(before the black clouds rolled in and we got a bit of a shower!)… I had my first icecream of the season….(hence one of the signs in the icecream shop!)
Look familiar?  I was here… in Jan…but it was a bit more ‘frozen’…and a lot colder!! The stairs I walked up..well were below water at this point!
A self portrait of us on a bench…….
A view from the bench….
..while we were sitting there a group of youth..came along.. and were practicing “parkour” this was the photo I caught of him.. but he’s basicly standing on this cement post.. that he jumped up on after ‘popping’ off the bars from the stairs…. I was waiting for him to fall and get a million and one stitches..but that didn’t happen!!

Happy EASTER!!!

It’s funny how that bunny always tends to find me even though I move around quite a bit!!  When I was up north… he even stopped in at Pangnirtung (via Canada Post!!)  This year was no different… although that darn bunny woke me up at an un-godly hour of 7:05AM on a SUNDAY..(when church wasn’t until 10am..so really I didn’t need to get off the ‘airmattress’ until 9ish…but well it was chocolate..so I didn’t complain too much!) 

The other fitting thing in this photo.. is my Costco membership.. I think I had the world’s SHORTEST membership… I am SOOOO not impressed with them… or their parking lot attendant’s that walk away from the ‘automatic’ cart collecter machine thingy… (as your car is backing up…) because apparently that might be bad news for Milo…. and who would have thought 3 scratches would cost sooooo darn much to get fixed…. argh!!!  ‘welcome to car ownership I suppose’….but needless to say.. I’m not a membership of COSTCO and NEVER will be again…. and still need to write a letter about it! (but got my membership money returned…)

Sunsets and high water….

Mom’s been enjoying the sunsets from my balcony.. and there have been some awesome ones! (even though I still need to get some patio chairs… we’ve been pulling out my kitchen table ones or just standing!)..

…pretty colours…like the sky was on fire!!
The river has been pretty high… it’s been quite fun to ‘watch’ it… and wonder how high it will go before it lowers again… there is a bit of movement…when the open gates to divert water…into the aquaduct system…that takes the water out of the city! 
(i think… i’m still not 100%..and am too lazy to google this info for you!)
..a bit fuzzy but you can see how high the water is!  (the boat that was miles from the river a week ago.. is almost touching it!)…

a sunset walk…

>Mum landed this morning…so tonight after dinner we went for a short walk… (over the bridge to the Legislative Building)…. (it’s not that far at all..but apparently was a “BIG” walk! 😉

The water is pretty high on the Assiniboine River…actually since I came home on Sunday night I couldn’t believe how high it was!

Here’s where I walked down to the ice to go on the ‘river-walk’ a few months ago… now about 1/2 of the stairs are under water!! 🙂
Mum on the bench… I joined her soon after this photo was taken… we sat and watched the sun get lower in the sky… watched people walk by… and just laughed about silly things that only a mother and daughter can laugh about!
Since I cut off the “Golden Boy” in the last photo… here’s a upclose ‘blury’ photo of him!
Here’s a shot of our view from the bench!!
A view from my balcony… you can so how HIGH the water is…. (soon that boat will be in the water… and at the end of last week it was far away from the edge of the water!)…
