Our new neighbourhood

I found the cable, and I'm good to go with photos. Now I'm thinking that I need a new camera... that Nikon DX looks nice. (Ahem. See that PayPal "donate" button there? Hint hint... :D)

First of all, Milo loved his Valentine's Day card from Grammy and Grampy. It had pirates on it! Now he wants "his" letter every time we go check our mail.

On our first walk to the beach at the end of our street (we ARE on Oceanview Drive, after all), we just made it for sunset. It was cold, damp, and windy, but what do you expect from the beach in February?

And the sunset was quite pretty too...

I suppose we made the mistake of luring Milo out of the house with the promise of a lollipop when we got there. So he gets one every trip to the beach now. That's not bad parenting, is it?

It's only about 15 minutes to the water, through a lovely path in the woods. And if we don't feel like the beach, there are lots of parks nearby, including one called Cliff Gilker Park that's a network of trails running between two little rivers.

Full of small waterfalls, benches, potential wading pools (when it's warmer), and amazingly green forest, it's a bit of a change from Commercial Drive.

We've got houseguests coming today -- our first since the grandparents -- so it'll be nice to have some company. I guess I better go buy some beer too.

And today is Tim and Ilka's wedding in Winnipeg! Congratulations and sorry I can't be there!
