Father's day and we started out our day by going out for breakfast
We could have gone anywhere, but I didn't feel like lining up and fight for parking, so we just went to our usual place for my eggs benedict. During good weather we go out more often to enjoy the day. During times of bad weather we stay home and make our own meals.
I like it when I don't have to drive
Relaxing in the passenger seat
While Father's day was actually on Sunday, our daughter invited the family over for my special dinner on Saturday night, and our granddaughter was in charge of making
her most excellent dessert. For dinner on Sunday I was treated to a home-made prawn dinner
we prepare very simple meals, just prawns over lettuce
Stir fried prawns with lots of cilantro (my favourite), and lots of lemon juice, with a coke float for dessert
We are in the midst of a renovation and all of our junk was piled/stored in my carport, which has limited access. Right now all of our vehicles have to be parked on the street so I have no covered parking for a few months. Even my V-strom is out on the street so I purchased a bike cover to keep it hidden. I spent some time trying to clean up an area so I could park my bike undercover. I have just enough room to ride it on the sidewalk, between the houses
In the process of tidying up, sorting and throwing stuff away I came across a small bird's nest. It is probably a sparrow, or other small bird and it looks like 5 or 6 eggs have recently hatched.
I didn't wish to disturb them and I noticed the mother bird flying around waiting for me to leave. I made a little noise and immediately 5 or 6 beaks were opening and closing looking for food
I think they were about a day old. This gives me an excuse to not clean up anymore, as I don't want the mother bird to abandon her babies.
I have passed this Steveston Harbour sign many times, but today I stopped for a photo
It wasn't a great day and rain was forecast. We have had torrential rains for the past few weeks and there is lots of pooling water
