"Malahat Morning"

A few weekends ago the intent was to travel up island from Victoria, 
check out Grant & Nixie's show in Ladysmith, and afterwards 
find a spot for a bit of en plein air painting but sometimes 
intentions go in different directions and turn into adventures, 
Linnyland painting adventures...
Part way along the Malahat Drive is one of those 
"Scenic Lookout Viewpoints" that one thinks one must spot at "sometime". 
Well, sometime turned into that day. 
And, with the "Scenic Lookout Viewpoint" view, 
it became "the spot" for painting. 
So, (with the intent of staying clear of oncoming cars 
as well as not impeding the view of 
other Scenic Lookout Viewpoint lookers) over the fence 
went the easel, the paint bag and the painter. 
With back to the fence (as there wasn't much area to maneuver) 
it was up with the easel, squeeze out the paint, brush to canvas, 
and be amazed by the view AND 
at the amount of Scenic Lookout Viewpoint lookers 
who actually pull in to stop and have a look -- not just at the view 
but at the painter on the other side of the fence. 
Before very long there was that sort of the sensation 
of being a monkey behind the fence in the zoo
 with so many onlookers looking on!

"The Christmas Day Miracle Walk 2014"

As you may recall, one of our holiday traditions 
 is the "Christmas Day Miracle Walk".
While the festive meal cooks we enjoy a walk
 where we look for Christmas miracles and most often
 discover them in nature.
For this year's CDMW the weather was sunny and 
unseasonably warm - miracle number one!
As we wander the shoreline of Saxe Point Park 
we spy a trio of otters just off shore. 
One of the otters swims towards us and comes ashore 
with a large crab in it's mouth.
While the onshore otter feasts the other two otters 
swim around the point and out of sight.

Once the meal is finished the single otter returns 
to the sea and starts to search and call for the other two. 
Before long the otter calls sound more distressed 
and still the other two otters are no where in sight. 
The single otter swims back and forth along the shoreline,
it's calls louder and louder. 

Finally the two missing otters reappear from around the point, 
the single otter spies them and calls once more, 
the three enjoy a playful reunion before they swim away.

Another Christmas, another magical CDMW!

Hope yours was magical, too!
