And some clever quip...
Victoria For Labour Day
Our kids stayed at Grandma's house for the
week before Labour day, and then us working parents over to visit
for the second weekend. Marcus and James and their parents
came as well so we had lots of kids and lots of parents which gave
more time for activities. I've wanted to go to Whitty's
Lagoon for quite a while and so we packed a lunch and headed out!

Reifel Bird Sanctuary
Early in the Covid Outbreak, the Reifel Bird
Sanctuary closed. I didn't hear when it opened again, but
the internet told me it was now. The new format requires you
to book ahead to get a time slot so the parking lot doesn't become
crowded. It was a little rainy so we got a "short notice"
slot, but on a sunny day you might need to book in advance.
At this point, my kids are pretty good at feeding birds out of
their hands. This behaviour is widely seen - kids everywhere
are sticking out their hands trying to attract chickadee's and Red
Wing Blackbirds. On our recent trip to Manning Park, we found birds
there were looking for hand outs
, as are birds at Stanley
Park, but it's not universal. A walk around QE Park found
that the Chickadee's completely ignored seeds in our hands.
There are bird feeders around the sanctuary at various places so
it's pretty easy to spot small birds near the paths waiting for a
My bird portraiture still needs work, but
