I live in Victoria, British Columbia, a city on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. It’s a beautiful place. Mount Douglas Park is a short walk away and has many hiking trails. Below is a picture from the top of Mount Doug looking east over Harro Strait Mount Doug is a special meeting place for local Fist Nations. They call it ‘Pokols’. Standing on the top, it’s not hard to see why it’s special.
I grew up in Lethbridge, a prairie city in Southern Alberta. As a boy, I spent many happy and carefree hours exploring the coulees and the Oldman river valley. Waterton National Park, a short drive away at the edge of the Rocky Mountains is another of my favourite places.
I spent several years living and working in Northern Alberta, and that part of the country is special for me as well. It was during those years that I became aware of the conditions in which many First Nations people still live.
I’ve done some traveling and in addition to some of the usual holiday spots, we were fortunate enough to visit Denmark, Spain and Portugal. Spending some time in other countries gives different perspectives.
I like swimming, cycling and hiking and, I’m a certified Divemaster. Oh yes. I play the bagpipes and have an old 1957 GMC truck that I’m restoring.
We live in a small cul-de-sac which is more family than neighbourhood. We share good times together and help each other out. All in all, Life is good!
I write because I love to write. ‘The White Limousine‘ is now a published work. I hope that you’ll read it and enjoy it. I have other works in the works, and I’ll tell you more about those in future posts.
Thanks for visiting my site.
