The first two photos were taken at the local Legion on November 11, 2011. It was a strange day, starting out mild, but a storm moved in growing in intensity until it became so wet and windy that it knocked the power out for four hours. It seemed quite fitting for the occasion.
An eagle sentry silhouetted against a dark sky keeps a keen eye on the salmon spawning activity in the nearby waters.
Something I made was a delicious strawberry rhubarb streudel drizzled with almond icing.

For warmth, I chose a photo of the fireplace which not only keeps the home toasty but adds a cozy ambiance.
I have a couple of 'polka dot' themed photos. The first is a fallen leaf sprinkled with rain spots.
The second caught my eye as I walked by a home which had a decorative element with small round mirrors. The red foliage of a tree in the garden was reflected in the mirrors producing quite a spectacle.
Here's an even more spectacular view of the tree reflected in the window below.
Two black cats spotted on November 13 looked like good luck charms to me :)
What smells better than homemade bread/rolls for a comfort food? Nothing. :)
Here's a staircase at a local restaurant bedecked for Christmas.
Something that lights up is this clump of ornamental grass! When I turned on my headlights, I was amazed at how picturesque it looked.
There now, all done...oh wait, a self-portrait. I quickly ran into the dining room and took a photo through a glass cabinet door. Oh, what a shame, I can only see a dark shadowy blob! ;)
I have photos to post of more visits to 'where the river meets the sea' salmon spawn, and also of a variety of interesting birds visiting my bird feeders...and one furry creature that gobbled up most of the 'woodpecker' food. A sample of more to come soon ...
Here's a photo of Scamper:
Looks innocent as all get out, doesn't he?
How about now?
