Sunrise on the West Coast of BC

We are going to have a beautiful day here as seen by the sunrise this morning around 630 a.m.  This is one of the reasons I am fortunate to live in my floating home along the shores of Canoe Pass on the Fraser River just outside of the small town of Ladner B.C.  You can […]

Summer Time is Salad Time !

I love this time of year when the strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries are so wonderful and abundant in my small town of Ladner.

Blueberries and Almond Snack

Wondering what to nibble on when the afternoon munchies appear ? Why not set out a bowl of blueberries and a handful of raw almonds instead of the chips or cookies. Living in and around Vancouver B.C. we are surrounded by mountain and blueberry farms.  Just travel to Richmond,  Ladner or your local farmer’s market […]
