#100HappyDays Continued – Days 223 – 229
Another week of photos for your viewing pleasure.
I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed each moment.
Day 223 – February 14, 2015: When we booked our trip to Whistler, we made the assumption that there would be plenty of snow in the middle of February so that we could go skiing. We were wrong. There was virtually no snow, so we decided not to fly our skis out just to ski terrible conditions. So, instead we decided to bring our winter boots and snowshoes. Once we arrived, we discovered there wasn’t even enough snow for that! So, we made the most of it and we found ourselves hiking in our horribly warm winter boots on trails that are usually snow covered until at least May. Today we hiked 6 km (3.7 mi) to Cheakamus Lake – the weather was near perfect and the scenery was stunning. While we had many other happy moments today, the few hours in nature were definitely my happiest.
Day 224 – February 15, 2015: After sleeping most of the morning away, today we enjoyed another shorter (3km/1.9mi) hike to Nairn Falls. We also enjoyed an evening of drinking and people watching on another patio in the main square. It was truly a splendid day. And my happiest photo goes to a piece of ice that Mr. MPB picked up out of a small puddle and suggested I take a photo of it with the blue sky and mountains in the background – it’s so random and weird that I just love it!
Day 225 – February 16, 2015: On our way back to the airport to fly home, we stopped by Granville Island to stock up on salmon jerky and we also visited the Under Water Zoo (aka Vancouver Aquarium) for a fun filled afternoon of watching cute sea creatures including jellyfish, beluga whales and dolphins. We had a great time!
Day 226 – February 17, 2015: Yesterday, we stumbled upon one of the two lenses I want for my camera at a used camera store. It was such an amazing deal that we bought! So I now have my early birthday present – the Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP A/M 1:1 Macro Lens for Pentax. And today I am super happy to be trying it out!
Day 227 – February 18, 2015: Whenever we go hiking outside of a national park, I pick up a rock from the hike. Today as I unpacked my suitcase and added my new rocks them to my collection, I couldn’t help but smile as I remembered our beautiful weekend.
Day 228 – February 19, 2015: Today felt like a day that deserved some extra happiness, so I bought myself some of my favourite flowers – Gerbera daisies (and yes, I bought them at Costco). Daisies always make me happy and as an extra happy bonus I had so much fun playing with my new camera lens.
Day 229 – February 20, 2015: What would a week be if I didn’t include a picture of some sort of food? Today, I ate the last of our salmon jerky that we picked up and I thoroughly enjoyed every little savoury bite.
Wishing everyone splendid happy moments!
