RETIRED AND TIRED ….

A MT. LEHMAN POLITICAL PLATFORM….

A MT. LEHMAN REST AREA….

A SIDE STREET…….

I THINK HE'S A “SWAINSON” HAWK……

AREN'T WE PRETTY…….

A ROAD ONCE TRAVELED ….

WEIGHING THE ODDS……..

ONE OF THE ‘COASTAL’ MTNS……….

ACROSS THE VALLEY…LOOKING NORTH…

A LITTLE ‘CUTIE’…….

NOT BEING ‘KEPT UP’………….

SLOWLY FALLING INTO DECAY….ALAS !

OH MY….

HAPPY ‘SOCIAL’ HORSES….THEY DON'T LIKE TO BE ALONE….

WAITIN' FOR THEIR MASTER….I ‘TALKED’ TO THEM FOR A FEW MINUTES…AS YOU CAN SEE THEY JUST STARED AT ME…THEY NEVER MOVED…ALTHO THE BROWN ONE DID ‘WAG’ THE TIP OF HIS TAIL A COUPLE OF TIMES…..

A SMALL COLONY TYPE IN THIS ARE….

AN ‘OLD’ CLASSIC….

I THINK THIS BARN HAS RETIRED….

SOMETHING OLD …..

I THINK I'LL TAKE THE ‘PICKED’…..

CEDAR ANYONE ??

A COUNTRY ‘ESTATE’….

WILF AND LINDA'S “ARTESIAN” WELL…………..

BLUEBERRIES…..THEY SEEM TO HAVE ‘REPLACED’ RASPBERRIES AS THE CROP TO GROW….WHILE STRAWBERRIES..HERE.. ARE ALMOST NON-EXISTENT !!

This is the general neighbourhood my wife grew up in post-WW2 when this is where the po' folk lived. Her father bought a 10 acre parcel for $5000 or less in 1945. There was no city water, no hydro, no sewer, no phone, no nuttin'. The "road" was simply two ruts wandering south from Hwy #1 (present day Frazer Hwy.) to the former Sternwheeler landing stage at the Frazer River. You lived there 'cause you couldn't afford to live anywhere else. How ironic that nowadays people live elsewhere 'cause they can't afford to live there......... BTW, Every year we buy our annual blueberry supply at Onnink's farm; five boxes worth; just put 'em straight into the deep freeze. They keep wonderfully. Their product is completely organic. No chemicals, no 'cides of any kind and the berries are big and sweet.
