the sky is my endless fascination

As in Maui in 2015, I don’t think I missed a sunset in Puerto Vallarta.  The sky is my endless fascination.

Most of the sunset pictures I took in Puerto Vallarta were from the rooftop pool. I don’t really have a bucket list, but I’ve always wanted to stay somewhere with a private pool.

Rooftop pool

…a lot of time was spent in this pool staring out at the sea (but my favourite time in the pool was in the evening look at the lights of Puerto Vallarta and the moon)…

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.

into the mystic

“hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”
― Van Morrison

Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta…many photographs to share after two weeks in Puerto Vallarta, but this is one of my favourites.

Going, going, gone…

Watching the sunset over the North Saskatchewan River from the Battleford Bridge, late June.  Just might have become one of my favourite spots in Saskatchewan to watch the setting sun. Lucky for me, I know some people who live close by!

Prince Albert National Park Sunset

Waskesiu Lake sunset at Prince Albert National Park….my favourite part of camping in the park was listening to the sounds of loons calling in the distance.  If you look at this picture long enough, you just might be able to hear their distinctive and haunting song.

Saskatchewan is more than just endless miles of prairie landscapes, we have beautiful lakes and forests and rivers, too!  

Made me think of how many National Parks I’ve visited in Western Canada, so here’s my list: Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan, Banff, Jasper, Waterton, and Elk Island National Parks in Alberta, Kootenay, Glacier and Yoho National Parks in British Columbia, and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on Vancouver Island. I’d love to visit more, in particular, Gwaii Haanas and Gulf Islands off the coast of British Columbia, and Gros Morne in Newfoundland.  Never a bad thing to have travel goals!
