June Calendar Photo

This photo was taken June 22nd, 2021, almost a full year ago. The girls turned six months on July 4th.  Click here to read about the walk in the photo. We had travelled to the area so that Colin could do some aerial photography for the City of Vancouver. It was the first time in all the years that he has had this annual contract  ( at least 25 years ) that it was perfect blue sky.

The girls first trip in the RV was on June 8th. This was their second trip and they did very well. Later in July we went to Jasper, Edmonton and Banff. By the end of that trip they were seasoned RV travellers.

The reason for this particular trip was the aerial photography but also to see so many of our friends. Of course we were also introducing the twins to many of them. Gramma Katie and Louie were the priority. We returned home on June 25th and just a few days later we were in that heat dome, where so many died. This link will expand on the heat dome. So very very different than this June when we are wet, wet, wet and even wetter. Flowers are not growing and vegetable gardens are stunted. We have replanted our beans for the third time, neither the spinach nor the Swiss chard are growing and I have resown those seeds as well as the beets today. The carrots planted May 7th are only an inch above the soil. We are living in different times these days. Yes I am happy that there are no forest fires but the rest of the situation is unsettling.

  1. I recall watching a special where a meteorologist said they could no longer give an accurate Weather Forecast beyond Three Days. Hopefully if pollution can be brought under control it will improve.
    Be Safe and Enjoy your time with the girls.

    It’s about time.

      I believe that about accurate forecasts. Will we ever be able to change the negatives that our world is heading to?

    Great picture 🙂 The lake is rising fast, we may be back to the flooding we had in 2017 where a large section of the campground flooded.
