On a recent trip, I had one free day in each of Dublin, London and Paris. We made a quick stop in Nice, France as well. It wasn't really enough time to do a lot of touring, but enough to walk around, explore, eat a few good meals and take a few photographs. The historic [...]
I pointed the camera skyward during the Labour Day long weekend. Lots of trail-and-error. These where the best.
We got to spend a little more than 24 hours in Sandspit, BC - a small town in the Haida Gwaii archipelago (formerly Queen Charlotte Islands).

I took a meandering path and found my way to Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park. It's more of a [...]
