Fine Art Friday – Sargeant Bay Provincial Park – Sunshine Coast
I know – this is isn’t quite Southern Alberta Scenery. But, it’s still scenery, it’s gorgeous, and it deserves a flashback to the glorious evening it was! Picture August 2018, a heatwave, flat calm waters and a gorgeous soft sunset. My hubby and I had been touring the Sunshine Coast for a week. Unprecedented […]
Alberta Mini Break – Waterton Lakes National Park – Day 2
Last week I shared the journey down, with the bears and beautiful scenery. A good night’s sleep in a comfy bed was followed by a decadent, and delicious breakfast at Pearl’s Cafe.

Plenty of pregnant mares, ready to drop, had been spotted on the last drive. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Despite original forecasts […]

That said, maybe now is the time, with my focus moving over to the Fine Art side of my photography while events are shutdown. […]
