Then tonight, I went rollerblading. Now mind you, never in my life have I bladed. But my butt and palms now hurt, my shoulder is out of joint of I think. Crashing and burning was the theme tonight. I also managed to discover that my blades were crooked, no wonder my right foot kept wanted to turn over....arrrgghh... so the others went on and I trudged back to the car, out came the tool set, disassembled the traitorous blade, stripped the thing, hammered a few bits back in shape and hopefully it will be straight now. Will find out saturday.
So now I'm still in the scenery and flower photo taking mode.
The city skyline.
More white flowers.
A rustic bridge.
A purple flower.
A goose hijacking an eagle's nest. Lucky blighter.
Hmmm time for some night shots.

A week in review
The other was a great big blister on my right foot. Ummmm. Haven't had one since lord knows when. Out came the sewing needle and first aid kit. Punctured the thing and dressed it. But walking for a while was funny.
Then I went and watched Spiderman 3. I found it somewhat long but rather interesting. Things are getting funny for me, used to be fascinated by the action but these days I'm fascinated by the human interaction more. There is a big love triangle in this movie and of coming of friendship.
Then finally, I got me something I've been eyeing for a long time. The supermart had a $30 off coupon for anything over $250.... my brain clicked into gear and I got this cam for only $269... yayyyyy. A brand new Fujifilm S700 (S5700 in some places), 7.1MP, 10X optical zoom, 1cm Supermacro, Image Stabiliser, it takes SD cards too! I had gotten a spare 1GB SD card last year for $30 during last year's Boxing Day sale, now I can use it. I'm off tomorrow for some fun. :)

Day Hike at Indian Graves Rec Park
Arriving at the trail, firstly, it was up this bloody steep hill, huff puff, need to get in shape.
Stop along the way to admire my personal version of El Dorado (anyone remember Romancing the Stone?)
Nothing like ridge walking
But the climb was worth it, what a vista
We also had a furry friend come along, he's a Siberian Husky, damn friendly
Beats bashing the jungle anytime
Got another day hike coming up in 2 weeks, need to learn to lighten my load...huff puff...
PS: got a big blister on my foot now.... oooooooooh
