Ocean Walk

Yesterday I decided to take Dante for a walk on the boardwalk along the Ocean. Its just a short walk from our place but so beautiful to view. From this side you can see the down town area and Fisherman's Wharf where Captain Ron and Sea King Adventures Whale Watching is set up. I've known Captain Ron since my first summer when Sabine and I went whale watching on or right around my birthday. Have gone out whale watching at least once a year since and sometimes up to 5 times. We always see whales and its such a nice boat ride out on the ocean. This is where Robert and I ended up walking all the way down town and then over to Fisherman's Wharf.

Dante and I decided to invite Patty and Gwen to come along on our walk today. I promised them both a Popsicle if they behaved and didn't whine. It's a gorgeous day out today warm but not too hot and really sunny. There was lots to see today with all the house boats, kayaks, birds and sea planes landing and taking off. I want to try and do this walk on more of a regular basis and maybe writing it on here will make me feel more obligated. Yesterday I just had my phone and posted a couple photos but today I took my regular camera. I'm hoping to finally get my new camera before we head to Ontario. Well here are a few shots from today I hope you enjoy them and while I think of it HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!

The start of our walk photo op!

This seagull is eating something in a shell!

It was exciting to watch this bird looking for something to eat!

Its hard to see in the following photo but the bird
is there in the middle of its dive!

You can see as the bird takes off it has something!

Gwen finding sea shells!

An old glove!

Today we went on a picnic Breanne, Ben, Bella, Patty, Gwen and me! We went to a water park just down the road from where the kids moved . Its actually a real nice park that I never even knew existed till recently. The only reason I know where it is located is I pass the street every day I drive a #6 bus which is 5 days a week. Bre packed us a real nice lunch and had treats and cookies as well. The water was a little cold for the kids so we ate lunch then played in the normal park. I think Ben had as much fun if not more fun than Gwen and Bella. Good for him! It was a beautiful day nice and sunny and not too hot. Its great to see Gwen and Bella getting along so well. This is good practice for when her little brother comes along in a few months. We are all looking forward to that day!
I hope we can have another picnic soon and this time we might go to Goldstream Park. Maybe we can get the rest of the family to come out and bring the dogs along. I think that would be fun. Hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I did taking them. Enjoy summer and just in case your counting, 43 days till we are in Ontario. Looking forward to seeing every one!
