On Thursday a group of bloggers link with LeeAnna of Not Afraid of Color to share lists of things that fill them with gratitude or bring them joy.
My post this week is short due to the fact I am out of town, spending time visiting at the hospital.
The bloggers who take part in LeeAnna’s linky party are following weekly prompts to add to our lists of likes. This week’s prompt is:
— a place you always go to in the summer… a vacation spot, a cabin or town, camping location, in childhood or nowadays
As a child we moved often since my father was in the Canadian Armed Forces. We often travelled to White Rock, British Columbia where my paternal grandparents lived. I remember walking on the shoreline and the smell of the ocean. A few years ago I went back to White Rock to see if my grandparent’s home was still there. It’s now a condominium complex so I really didn’t take pictures.
As a parent I usually took my kids camping, everywhere from Northern Ontario to several locations in British Columbia. there always was a lakeside campground to be found. Then we could fish, swim, or take the boat out for a bit!
I can’t find any of those photos to share. Years ago my children and I went through our family photo albums making sure people, names and places were identified and written on the back of the photos along with years and locations. We then made up albums for each of them to keep. I only kept a few photos for myself, but seem to have put them away in a “safe place”. 😳
Now my vacations are spent travelling to Alberta to see my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren (mostly pre-Covid trips) or to Oyama where the studio which houses my longarm is. I’ve shared photos of my view here in Oyama over the past couple of years and in all seasons. One of the things I enjoy most is getting to the ferry dock either on my way to or from the studio. I’ve decided that it’s the water that makes me happy! 😉
Thank you for stopping by my blog. 😉 Carol
