Lens-Artist Challenge – On Display

thanks to Amy for hosting this week’sĀ Lens-Artist Challenge

On the weekend we discovered a new micro-brewery close to home. It’s called Stonehooker which refers to a boat that went out into the lake and dug up shale for the roads in the neighbourhood. It’s very clear when you walk in that the owner had a nautical theme in mind.

I haven’t been anywhere tropical in over 35 years so I wasn’t sure how many palm pictures I’d find in my archive of photos. Turns out that the zoo, botanical gardens and countries like England and Italy are all keepers of this wonderful tree.IMG-1133-2

I particularly like what you find under the palms at the zoo.

Christmas Tables

It’s been a busy week with lunches with friends, a volunteer Christmas lunch at the Inn, an open house, discovering a new brewery and Christmas dinners with old friends.qukn5u-Vk-Tu2-Z9-GBch0x-Di-A
