Here are a few photos from our trip down the Fraser yesterday…..I had a BLAST!! I’d forgotten how much I love boating…I grew up on, in, around, and sometimes under boats…LOL!!!!!
As a kid, as well as being on and around the water most of the time, I used to hang out and watch my uncle repair outboard motors, found it fascinating, the smells and all, even thought the dry-dock with it’s yucky fiberglass smells was a fascinating thing!! lol)…I  found myself humming underneath the hum of the boat motor, caught myself (I used to always do this, it’s a “happy on a boat” thing) …..and smiled knowingly to myself!! 🙂

These last two photos really caught my eye though….now you know what happens to all the old junker cars!!!!!!!


I hope you all have a great week ahead of you! I ended up with a dead Blackberry Curve yesterday…seems the battery decided it didn’t want to charge anymore so off we went to my phone rep this morning, she popped a new battery in for me..no charge…sweet!!!!! I ended up buying a clear acrylic case for it too….for a little more protection!
A little later we are all off to take a trip down the lower portion of the Fraser River, hubby needs to go look at a boom so we are all going with him….naturally I am bringing my camera with me so look for some photos of that later today…..provided I snag some interesting ones!! 🙂

……And ……just LOOK at this beauty I just found online!!! Now if I had an extra $20,000.00 smacker-roo’s I still don’t think I would buy one…….. but still ………ya gotta love all that BLING!!!!! (check this out May!!! LOL) …42 diamonds in 18k gold plus rare carbon gold fiber leather…..oooooooooo-wheeeeeee!!!!!!


Here’s a video on making these adorable Viewmaster cards…..great card Dawn!!

It’s a V.6 AWD too so hopefully will be great in the winter for me. 🙂
