I’m posting a few days after Christmas and I hope you all are having a safe and very happy holiday season. For those of you with a week off between Christmas and New Year’s Day, lucky you. I hope you can relax and have fun. Now, please join me on my photos posted to social media in the past week.


A peaceful scene…
near Abbotsford in the Fraser Valley of Canada, Springtime!

Posted on Christmas Day, a lovely Christmas cactus, a special gift to me from my late mother.

Tulip and baby’s breath. It was late in the evening when I took this photo in the gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver.

I don’t know about you but it’s chilly, rainy, and dark outside my window, so here’s a look back to Spring, and some brightness at the Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver.

What am I listening to?

Whenever I’m down, songs like this pick me up. Definitely one of my top Country songs of the year, this is LoCash and I Love This Life!



Frosted trees and Vancouver…
Although I took this photo from Mount Seymour last Spring, it looks like Winter, doesn’t it? I need to get back to the mountains soon.

Also posted on Christmas Day… Can’t see the mountains at the moment, but it’s a beautiful Christmas Day in Vancouver (this is from Surrey).

Not the best photo but can you believe a rhododendron blooming a couple of days before Christmas? This was taken along East Hastings Street in Burnaby.

About Randall St. Germain

Randall St. Germain, author of Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, is a middle-aged Canadian Boy who is passionate about nature, photography, hiking, music, and self-improvement. After the death of his mother, he chose to walk the famous pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, across the north of Spain, despite knowing little about it. He certainly didn’t plan to write a book until the latter days of his Camino. Similar to walking the Camino, writing and publishing a book was a learning experience. It was also very rewarding, and part of his ongoing journey. Please join him as he takes you along on his journey in Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, and on his blog Camino My Way.
