Photo Of The Day: View Of Victoria

Under the blue sky

Enjoying the view

Lounging in a lounge chair

Staring blankly

Towards the sky

Wondering what to do

For the rest of the day.

I really enjoyed reading about the behind the scenes of the movie industry in the 1930’s. This story also highlighted the sad economy of the Great Depression.

Movie Review: Animal Crackers

Image Courtesy of Wikipedia

Summary

A little boy grew up in the circus and met the girl of his dreams through their love of the circus. But, he decided to give up his dream of the circus and work at a dog biscuit factory for his father-in-law. After seven years of toiling under the critical eye of his father-in-law, he was exhausted. However, he continued to find a way to make better tasting biscuits, since he was the only quality control person tasting them….

One day, a fire broke out at the circus and his only aunt and uncle had perished, leaving him a curious box of animal crackers. Then, suddenly he ate one and something magical happened….

Conclusion

The topic of death, betrayal and jealousy could be a bit dark for younger children. However, I really liked the aspect of chasing and working towards one’s dream.

Abundant flowers

In a grand garden

To breathe in the

Fragrance

While strolling

Among the

Purple and yellow

Blossoms.

Photo Of The Day: Bunny Sanctuary

Away from the scary roads

And far from the unknown

Being rescued off

The traffic and vehicles

While weaving

In and out

Searching for the next meal

All that is

In the past

As I am safe now

In my little

Wooden home.

Camping With Northirn Overland

This was the first time that I camped with a Taxa Tiger Moth mini RV from Northirn Overland. Our little RV also had a fold-up tent on the top, so the little ones could sleep upstairs, while the adults could stay inside the RV on the pull-out sofa bed.

There was a pull-out kitchen at the back of the RV. We were able to cook with a tank of propane. Super convenient!

Since the set-up wasn’t too heavy, our hybrid car had enough power to tow it to and from the camp grounds. Plus, we all kept dry during the down pour of rain for the last two nights.

Photo Of The Day: View From The Driving Range

Look up from the sea

Of golf balls

As one swings

Their club

See how the

Clouds float by

Quietly and

Peacefully.

Visiting Fort Langley

“Fort Langley National Historic Site, commonly shortened to Fort Langley, is a former fur trading post of the Hudson’s Bay Company in the community of Fort Langley of Langley, British Columbia, Canada. The national historic site sits above the banks of the Bedford Channel across McMillan Island.”—-Wikipedia

We had a few hours to spend at this museum. There were mostly rebuilt houses from the past and one original one on site. The displays showed us how the people and aboriginals lived inside this fort back in the frontier times. Fort Langley was named after Thomas Langley, a Hudson’s Bay Company director in 1827.

The day that I was there, there were two interesting demonstrations. One was the blacksmith shop and the other was gold panning. I visited the gold panning demonstration first and found some “gold nuggets”! These were gold plated pieces that the museum left for visitors to pan and take home!

Next, I watched the blacksmith turn a piece of iron rod into a candle holder. This blacksmith then traded our “gold pieces” with iron hooks. I really enjoyed my visit to this educational museum.

If you ever visit British Columbia, Canada, you should check out this museum!
