  4. just beautiful! I didn't realize there were mountains in Vancouver. but then again I've never been there , but I have always wanted to go.
    I love your blog and read quite a few posts below. I agree so much about e-books, etc. everything you said. And as far as Kindle goes, I could never read a book on something like that, it just wouldn't feel "right". I have to have the actual book in my hands, and turn the pages. I get emotionally attached to every book that I read, and it would be hard for me to part with them. (that is the good ones anyway, and if it's bad, I just won't finish it and then those are the ones I can get rid of. 'Love your blog, and I will be back when I have more time to read all of it *lol* depending on how far it goes back, I haven't looked yet.
    nice to meet you!

  7. I'm loving the last photo, of the inukshuk. It reminded me, though, of an interview I just saw with someone who objected to the stylized inukshuk used for the Vancouver Olympics, because it is not in keeping with the traditional meaning of the stacks. "The Inuit make inuksuit (plural of inukshuk) in different forms for a variety of purposes: as navigation or directional aids, to mark a place of respect or memorial for a beloved person, or to indicate migration routes or places where fish can be found." I think they are very cool, though.

  9. Vancouver is a very beautiful city and I was lucky to be able to spend several days there at the beginning and end of the Great Alaska/Yukon trip.

    smarmoofus, I didn't realize there was a inukshuk controversy. I went and looked at the Olympic symbol...I don't see the issue. There is quite a variety in traditional inukshuks.

  15. gaelikaa,
    well, my father was born in Ireland, coming to the USA, so I am entitled to an Irish passport. does that make me Irish?
    While I live in NJ, USA, I love so much about Ireland, have been there many times, and part of my heart will always be there.
