canada day long weekend (part two)

Jul 9, 2013

We might have gone a little photo crazy when my mom visited us for Canada day. We were like some kind of photography maniacs. But who can resist that beautiful summer light?! On this particular Sunday, we decided to beat the heat and head to our favourite ocean-side park for an evening walk. Mom & I tried watching a movie at our place but it was way too hot. Sitting & sweating. Not good. So out we went to enjoy that delicious ocean breeze!

We did a bit of walking (my mom still has to take it easy), met a ton of dogs, and watched Scout run and sniff every corner of that park. Funny story, Scout does this thing where he'll run up to a couple and join them for their walk. He happily putters alongside them, tail wagging... and then (my favourite part) he'll stop to admire the view with them. Haha, he's such a social guy. We just hang back and laugh. Seriously, what a character!
<<< Growing up, my mom & I used to go on the most epic walks. They’d last for hours, we’d talk about life stuff... stop at our favourite deli, grab food, and then head to the park for an impromptu picnic. Such great memories. >>>
<<< Someone's got his "ready to rumble" face on. >>>
<<< And yup... there he goes! >>>
<<< Taking a little breather. Next time, we'll definitley be coming back with blankets, snacks, and some wine. >>>
<<< We stayed until the sun set. However, walking back to the car along the dark trail was kind of scary. Well, Martin & my mom were relaxed... but nope, not me. I did a light jog back! >>>

20 sweet notes:

  1. It looks like you had the most lovely Canada day weekend, V! In the summer heat, the only solution is to get outside, especially in the evening... the air cools down outside, but inside stays warm (unless you're one of those lucky people with serious air conditioners!) which means exactly what you said, sitting and sweating. Yuck. Plus, there's nothing prettier than that late evening sun - these snapshots turned out just beautifully!

  2. So glad to hear you've had such a lovely time with your mother. Fingers crossed she will just keep on getting better! :) You so look pretty in your lilac maxi, and how funny is that about your dog! It's like he's test-driving new owners or something, hah!

  3. Aw, you always look so beautiful!And im so obsessed with your puppy! i used to have a german shephard a few years ago named scout! she unfortunately passed away from bone cancer and we have a new german shephard now named lucy
    also i read in your about me that you have a orange cat named Pumpkin! So do I! :)

  4. That sounds like a perfect way to spend a weekend afternoon - and the setting is so beautiful. I'm glad you got to spend some time with your mom in such a lovely place.
