I don’t remember a recent Summer on the West Coast of Canada as unsettled as the one of 2016. Well, the Autumn didn’t start off much better but we were lucky to get the odd day or even stretch of sunny weather. I took advantage of the more pleasant days with walks, short hikes, and visits to various gardens. If you like dahlias, there are many on this post, as I visited the gardens of Ferncliff on three occasions. These are my photos of the week posted to social media in September.

 

A whole lot of Summer colour and a touch of Autumn 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.

August was a very busy month for me. I didn’t travel far but had a lot of fun with walks, hiking, road trips, and dinners. I was also excited to hear from my doctor that I can finally fly again after the apparent success from my ear operation. I’m still a little nervous but will be happy to get away somewhere soon. I know I’m very late with this post so let’s get started. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media during the month of August.

 

I never will forget this sunset from my sail through the Gulf Islands of British Columbia on B.C. Ferries Spirit of British Columbia.

Well, I would like to blame the beautiful Summer weather for the lateness of this post but to be honest, there were many gray and rainy days in Vancouver during early July. Like most months of Summer, July just breezed by, and we are now facing August. I won’t make excuses for my tardiness, but will just present you with a selection of my photos and videos posted to social media during June.

 

The rose arbor was just beautiful when I visited the Centennial Rose Garden on Burnaby Mountain in Burnaby, Canada on a sunny Sunday in June.

I had promised myself this post would be published by the weekend. Of course that was two weekends ago and I can’t believe it’s already near the end of June. This is a long post so I better get to it and at it (please excuse the Stompin’ Tom Connors reference). I hope you enjoy this selection of my photos posted to social media in May.

 

Happy daffodils, along with the emerging azaleas…

As I continue to catch up on these weekly posts before taking a break from them, I published one featuring the cherry blossom trees of Vancouver. If you missed it, please read, Scenes of Sakura, Plum and Cherry Blossoms of Vancouver. I really hope you enjoy it. Now, please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media, one week behind edition.

 

On the morning of my ear surgery… I’m off soon for a long anticipated / dreaded operation on my ear. Wish me luck. I need it!

No photos of me with a scalpel operating / dissecting my ear but…
