January 26, 2016 — Leave a comment

It’s been a crazy past few weeks for me. Between the holidays, moving, an operation, and caring for a family member who is now in the hospital, I’m behind on my weekly posts. Thats okay because my priority is my dear Aunt who I shall dedicate this post to. I show her my photos every day and they brighten her up. Now, please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media, late edition.


A whole lot of rose…
Late Spring in the gardens of Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada.

A snowy scene but can you believe this was actually in Summer?
Another view of the mountains from Panorama Ridge in Garibaldi Provincial Park, Canada. This is looking toward the Black Tusk with the Tantalus Mountains in the background.

What Am I listening to?

I saw Kuba Oms at the Surrey Fusion Festival last Summer and really enjoyed this song. So bright and upbeat! Although there is a club mix video, I am posting the official lyric video, the same version as I bought on iTunes. I hope Kuba gets more recognition for this song. This is “My Love.”



Between rows of yellow…
Along with orange and a few rebel tulips too.

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.
