The end of 2014 and beginning of 2015 was full of friends, art, birds, boats, building and birthdays!

Our lovely friend Landon Mackenzie had a show at the VAG and when we went to the opening party we met her two new friends from Florence, CristiAna and Giovanni. We had them over for a Canadian dinner of planked salmon and scalloped potatoes.  She is a fashion designer and he is an architect.   We are trying to hatch a plan for all 6 of us to meet up in Florence before they move back here.

Went on a fabulous bird watching day at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta with Karli and Dick and his parents Bill and Helen.  Please note our outfits.  Karli in camouflage and me dressed for hunting.  It was my first bird watching outing!  I told the lady at the desk that I thought we were going after rabbits like Elmer!
