OK, I'll play. I'm in my off-season right now. Still months away from getting back to the boat. Here's yesterday's adventure. Bet you're all jealous :
The donkeys are miniatures. They're cute, but kinda weird because their heads are almost full-size, but they're on these small bodies. The mini horse is some sort of Shetland pony, I think. Again, pretty cute, and really funny to watch when the big Kentucky plays with him.Are they baby donkeys? or pygmy donkeys? donkettes?? And what type of pony is it?
You want some of ours? We've had plenty here in southish Alberta.Like me , during the winter at the house in the mountains, during the summers on the boat. But I am jealous of that snow. Didnt see much of that this winter.
And to you as well, hope the season goes well.Right now just sick and tired of rain and mud and really want to get back on the boats, hence day dreaming in here a little and studying. We have two boats, the smaller one ( a 28) is for me to practice on and learn and this year I decided to redo its electrical system ( by myself entirely, my husband can do it fully and he is a pro at it, but this one is my challenge to figure out and I cant wait to get started on that, not that I have a clue what I am doing but the clue will be coming step by step hence the studying).
Enjoy the rest of the winter and wishing you a wonderful upcoming season!
Just sharing my joy with others . Wait till I get back to Newfoundland. I'll have better shots then ... although you won't hear as much from me because ... I'll be off cruising remote waters .Mike, stop with the snow photos already. I have a window.
We'll probably head that way eventually, but there's still too much left to explore up here.Yes, sadly, those not doing are sitting on the internet looking at photos of others that are doing.
Mike, idea for next winter: GO SOUTH. Your boat is mobile, you have no kids in school. GO SOUTH. Buy an A/C if you must. Don't give me that rubbish about being too warm, there are so many Canadians in Florida that they're changing the name to Southern Ontario.
Ha!Question: Why can't ponies (or are they donkeys) talk?
Answer: Because they are a little hoarse.
The remote Pacific sounds great. Maybe someday.Heck, we find solitude in Thousand Islands during high season. It’s there, just have to figure out how to get where others are afraid to go.
Show off .Spring has arrived in Vancouver! Even some brave sun bathers getting an early start on their tans!
Lucky find Howard. I assume she’s looking good. I’ll be happy to check in on her once we get there, but that won’t be till early June.Mike,
Oddly enough I got a pic of Chouette today, by accident. Someone put up a pic of that black steel schooner for sale on Kijiji and and Chouette was in the background.
Looking forward, but gonna be late again this year. Life and family stuff.

Cool. Can I get one for my uke .That little box is genius - it contains electronics that cover just about any sound or effect that is usually done by boards full of foot pedals and amp controls. Delay, flange, reverb, overdrive, feedback, distortion, chorus, etc. All for $40. She wouldn't be on the boat without it and the headphones.
Almost makes you want to go swimming ... almost.Looks like white Sandy beaches. Do you know what species bird those are?
Yeah... a bit gristley for my taste . Unfortunately, they are prolific poopers, and are generally considered nuisances when they linger in an area in large numbers. But at least they have a good sense of direction (at least, the migatory ones do).I love Canada Geese!! At the end of summer there were loads in New York in the waterfront. Very pretty birds. Make a great dinner. 😋
