I didn't have a glass of water here, and was thankful for that after witnessing Bird pull this unsanitary fast one. I doubt that water jugs like this are scrubbed with as much soapy and hot water fervor as plates and forks. You wouldn't think the need to. Until seeing this.
I imagine this ski hill in Whistler looks very different in the winter. In fact, I don't think you'd be able to see the hill as it would be teeming with people. If you aren't a skier then visit Whistler during the summer - it's probably the most pristine part of Canada, your allergies will disappear while there due to the lack of pollutants, and the money that was dumped into the town's infrastructure for the 2010 Winter Olympics helped things along in spades. As some tourists pointed out from Perth, Australia: "Whistler reminds me of Disneyland... you know, how everything is just so perfect looking. We came here after visiting Vancouver and thought that was absolutely beautiful, then we came here and it's even nicer! Bloody hell!"
Foxglove is an attractive, stately flower that grows in the wild and in cultivated gardens alike. I didn't realize that it preserves other cut flowers when arranged in a vase, and also stimulates the endurance of root vegetables like potatoes. Just don't go garnishing your potatoes with foxglove petals like how violets and lavender are added to salads and baked goods. Ingesting certain amounts of foxglove is poisonous!
This is a sign marking a hiking trail in the middle of the forest. People can't just leave well enough alone, can they? I mean, really, if you're going to go through the effort of defacing a sign then why not at least draw something funny. Drawing a bottle in one hand, some sort of burning material that's cigarette-shaped in the other hand (we can guess what that is), and putting shoes on him just doesn't cut it. I haven't the slightest clue why he's speaking the makings of a tic-tac-toe board.
There were a lot of take-offs and landings at the local water feature this past weekend in the form of the insect variety. I believe dragonflies symbolize the power of positive force and rejuvenation. Then a ladybug landed on me, and I think that means luck. I'm buying a lottery ticket this week.
We certainly enjoy the stark differences that all four seasons affords us in BC.
For example, contrast the surroundings of Stave Lake in the summer on a calm and peaceful day....
with what the surroundings of Stave Lake can be in the winter. Highlight is the "open the door" part at the end. And you thought your car was dirty....
