Eat Week

Shot with my S3 IS on 11 Dec. 1/160 sec. F/2.7 -0.67 exposure compensation.

Friends were to visit for what is becoming our annual 'celebration' week. I am calling it eat week because it seems we had some pretty good meals this week. Dinner at my place (with Ruby and Steve) on the 10th, after seeing Urinetown at the Belfry. On the 11th we went up to Chemainus and could not get into the theatre. It was pouring rain, so we just had a coffee and went on. Stopped in Ladysmith for a look at the Christmas lights, then on up to Nanaimo and stayed at my favourite hotel, the Dorchester. Nice evening meal in the dining room. After breakfast in the morning we went on to Englishman River Falls. The park was closed due to all the storm damage. We walked in anyway and got a look at main big Falls. We did not walk around as it would have probably been too dangerous. The bridge was shaking, the waterfall was roaring, mist flying everywhere. Wow, what a sight! We walked back to the car and carried on to Coombs. It was closed, as the power was out. No shopping! The goats were not on the roof but down in their winter pasture. After lunch at Parksville White Spot, we drove home with a stop at Harry & Jimmy's shop. Guy stuff! The weather on this day - 12th was better, but not great. Home in the dark and stop at Romeo's for pizza for dinner. Continued on my next post.
