Well, actually, it's now pretty much the end of summer climes here! There is a distinct cold "tang" in the air now that we are into Sept. I am thinking of heading up and over the mountains into the interior of BC for a pre-fall visit to my hometown and some "facetime" (real facetime that is, not iphone facetime) with my one and only father. It's been more than a year since I was back there so I'm excited to get back into the swing of things and in many ways going in the late summer is good as most people will be gone back to wherever they came from and only the permanent residents will remain feasting on their harvests and figuring out how they are going to get wood in for the winter. ---- a....and I've returned! Well kind of. I'm back in busyness here in Vancouver after hanging out with my father in the country. He seems well and content and he is as spry as ever. I keep wondering if someday he'll get old but he was quick to jump off on a day hike in the woods with me even though he was bagged from a hike the day before. I was feeling kind of tired when we'd climbed a little, about half - way through, when he spotted a nice place to try and scramble up further onto some slope and up he went. So I was pretty impressed to say the least. I'll post some pictures later. In the meantime another food pic here. My gal and I made some bean tacos the other night and she stuffed and fried up these flor de calabaza or zuchini flowers! Woah. They were quite tasty especially when stuffed into a taco! Some icy coconut water on the side makes a nice late summer snack! Well, that is all for now as I'm back home I really cant say much more, but the job is plodding along and I can feel October looming.
