Last Friday, David and I went on a photo walk in Vancouver, British Columbia. It has been many years since I last went there. Not that I don’t like the city — personally, I think Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been to. I used to take my kids there all the time. However, since the September 11 attack; the hassles I would get at the border made the trip less desirable. So… I was very happy that on this trip, David and I got through the border without having to get out of the car.
While the city is still as beautiful looking as ever, we were both shocked at the prices of all the rides and attractions — everything was between 40 to 50 dollars per person. So… we decided to just walk within the interesting parts of the city instead.
I have never seen a cruise ship this close before and the enormity of the ship was mind-boggling. When I see structures such as this ship, it never ceases to amaze me the things we can create for entertainment. From my estimation, the ship was at least 6 stories high and it seems each room has its own outside patio regardless of class status. (thoughts of the movie Titanic came to my mind about the segregation people used to have on class status) I’m sure the inside of the ship has all the comforts and extravagant living fit for the royalty.

These photos were taken at Northern State Hospital in Sedro Woolley, Washington. It was a psychiatric hospital for the mentally insane from 1902 – 1976. For years, there has been rumors and reports of ghost sightings and other paranormal activities. The place was even featured on the reality show, Ghost Hunters.
Needless to say, I was a little nervous when Mike and I did our photo walk around the area. While I didn’t see any ghosts, I noticed that some of the buildings were eerily quiet while others seem to fill with strange sounds and noises. Guess it could have been the pigeons or perhaps, it was just my imagination running wild…
At first I thought my camera had captured a ghost — then realized it was only a silhouette of Mike.

Here are some furry portraits from our outing at the Marymoor dog park. It was very interesting to sit and observe the expressions from all the different dogs. If only we could tell what they were thinking — then again, maybe not. I’m sure they probably think we humans are a strange breed.
The first two furry kids belong to me, Maximus and Ms. Evie.
Maximus the wonder dog. A loyal companion who understands over 60 commands and words, love to play sports, and will wipe his paws before entering the house.
Ms. Evie, the designer dog. She is a foodie consultant who loves to taste test all types of cuisine. And knows how to
beg get what she wants with her sad puppy eyes.
Here is another designer dog, the Golden-doodle (a combination of a golden retriever and a poodle) with the best looking hairdo prize.
