Weekly West Coast 2016 - April 18 to 24

 "Even living here, it's nice to be reminded of the beauty we don't always pause to appreciate."

The quote above is from an email a friend sent after seeing last week's West Coast Photos.  She articulates another reason for my starting this project.  We live in a beautiful part of the world, yet I don't always pause to appreciate it. Committing to sharing photos here ensures that I take a few moments each week to stop and enjoy this place where I live. This week I took about 150 photos.  That's a lot of a lot of pausing and appreciating. 

Thanks again to Hubby for helping me to select pictures for the week. 

Have a great week all! Sending you warm thoughts wherever you are!

Weekly West Coast 2016 - April 11 to 17

Look at me! I actually managed a second week of West-Coast photos.  The weather wasn't as co-operative this week.  There were times where it felt more like November than April.  But I did it! I got out there even on the days when I would have rather stayed in. 

To be completely honest, that was another motive for starting this "series".  It wasn't all half-assed altruism. There were fully selfish reasons too.  I feel better when I spend time outside, but there are days when the weather and my mood conspire to keep my in.  Committing to posting photos here gets my butt out the door.  We'll see if my commitment holds up when it's really November. 

Thanks to Hubby for helping select photos for the week, and for supplying the tulip pictures below. 

Have a great week all! Sending you warm thoughts wherever you are!

Weekly West Coast 2016 - April 3 to 10

A few weeks ago, when a friend moved to Ontario, I offered to send weekly photos from our west coast home. I figured she might need cheering as she digs out from yet another spring snow storm.  I'm thoughtful that way.

It occurred to me that there might be others out there who would enjoy the beauty of this part of the world, so I'm going to start sharing my favourite photos from the week here on the blog. 

Sending you warm thoughts wherever you are! Have a great week!
