PARKSVILLE TRIP


We got home night before last, and I haven't had a minute to upload these pictures until now!


The Brant Festival is on right now, celebrating these birds, who stop in Parksville for a month-long rest en route from Mexico to the Arctic Circle...

A great blue heron fishing on the rocks...
Spring!
Oh, and there were some humans that interested me, too.... :-) Mischa and Joe....
'Papa' Michael and Gibson...
River and his friend, Sam, who came along...

And a good time was had by all!

Yesterday I went to my Thursday Fibre Friends spinning group, and one of them mentioned seeing this 'yarn bombing' so I followed their directions, and found it on the way home...
(Those would be large rocks covered with knitted -- or crocheted, not sure -- 'blankets.'

Knit'n'Cafe today -- knitting pics tomorrow!
