Some lures I have collected over the years. They are all hand carved wooden lures made by various artists and lure makers. My love for art, fishing and handmade items come together here.

Now that I have a smartphone and the blogger app I can keep better record of Natalies adventures! Saturday mornings I like to take Natalie to Stanley Park. It gives mom a chance for some quiet time and Natalie has a blast there! She was up a 5:45 am this morning ready to greet the day. We had breakfast with mom and off we went.
We headed right for the playground, and to my suprise not a soul there! She had it all to herself. We went on the slides, swings and climbed up and down the playscape.
Next stop was the garden area. We walked around, I checked out the plants and trees while Natalie explored. She picks up rocks and finds bugs. She loves playing in the gazebos. After a quick diaper change it was off to see the ducks. We walked around the boardwalk and a little girl and her grandmother gave Natalie some bread to feed the fish and ducks. She was so happy. There were ducks, swans, frogs and fish. Natalies vocabulary is getting really broad. She was saying "ducks, frogs, fish, bread, dog, bird" and pointing out everything she was saying. She is stringing words together now into full sentences.
It was a really nice morning. Tempatures in the 70's. She had a blast and was starting to get tired. I decided to head out and she is now past out in the back seat of the truck.
Well this is the first of many I hope to blog. It is great to have record of her as she grows and learns!

Maybe it was the eagle waiting for dinner, but there were very few birds flying around in the open air. I took some calming deep breathes and headed back down along the river trail
I took a few sips of water and headed off again. My goal was goats peak, but I passed the trail and ran into the Eyrie House ruins by mistake. I have hiked up here so many times and have never seen these before.
Glad I made the mistake I enjoyed the view and then explored the area.
With some daylight left I moved on to Goats Peak
I made my way to a very special place for me. The spot where I proposed to my wife. I took a seat on the bench and felt very relaxed. At that very moment my wife called to see if I had heard any news on the house. Timing is everything.
